Press Release: Great Place to Work® Recognizes Bounteous as a 2022 Best Workplaces™ for Today's Youth
Toronto, Canada — June 14, 2022 – Bounteous, the digital innovation partner of the world's most ambitious brands, has been credited by Great Place to Work® as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces™ for Today's Youth, a list based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®.
Bounteous received this recognition following a thorough review by Great Place to Work®. To be eligible for this list, organizations must have at least 30 percent of their employees fit the millennial or younger demographics and have at least a 90 percent positive response to the statement, "I am treated fairly regardless of my age.”
The demographic requirements outlined by Great Place to Work® for the Best Workplaces™ for Today's Youth list include millennials and Gen Z; two generations that are inherently digital natives. Bounteous is home to more than 1,700 team members worldwide, and recently doubled its Canada-based workforce in late 2021. Nearly 86 percent of Bounteous’ Canada-based full-time team members are classified as millennials or Gen Z.
“We believe that great talent is attracted to more than just a company’s benefits package, especially in today’s environment,” said Leah Weyandt, Chief People Officer at Bounteous. “The Millennial and Gen Z workforce not only want a true work-life balance; they seek flexibility, prioritize their well-being, and value growth opportunities. They’re also holding the companies that they work for accountable in regards to their social responsibility which includes offering programming around sustainability, diversity, equity and inclusion.”
Bounteous promotes a transparent environment through weekly virtual town hall sessions; a supportive, team-oriented culture; virtual yoga, trivia nights; benefit concerts; bingo; collaboration center coffee hours; and activities for parents and their children. Bounteous' people-first culture includes benefits with a 401(k) match, 100 percent paid medical, a take-what-you-need time off policy, and an Employee Assistance Program that offers short-term counseling to team members and their dependents, as well as financial and legal counseling and assistance.
