For Immediate Release: April 15th, 2021
Burlington, ON – Mercer-MacKay Digital Storytelling (MMS), Canada’s leading content marketing agency for technology companies, has been named one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada in 2021. Already a 2020 Great Place to Work™-certified company, the team at MMS are honoured that our supportive, flexible work culture is being celebrated.
Great Place to Work and Best Workplace certifications are based on thorough, independent analysis and direct, anonymous feedback from employees. The Best Workplaces in Canada recognizes Great Place to Work-certified companies in different categories based on the number of employees. MMS is one of 50 great places to work across Canada with fewer than 100 employees.
“The best part of being recognized by Great Place to Work is that it’s a reflection of how the employees feel. Part of my role as Director of People & Culture is to ensure that every member of the team feels supported and empowered to do their best work. So, to not only hear that the employees are happy, but to have that celebrated, is incredibly rewarding.”
– Julie Lafleur, Director of People & Culture, Mercer-MacKay Digital Storytelling
At the beginning of 2020, MMS went from being a group of talented freelancers to a full-fledged agency with a passionate leadership team made up of loyal former freelancers. Our rapid growth during the pandemic required that we leverage technology to support our team’s wellbeing. This includes daily meditation sessions, weekly huddles and happy hours—all online via chat or video conferencing.
“To be recognized in our first year in operation with full-time employees is so humbling and exciting, it almost brings me to tears. Our goal is to create a workplace that nurtures people to flourish, reach their career goals and care for their families. The culture at MMS is an ecosystem. We depend upon and support each other, and this translates into great work for our clients.”
– Gail Mercer-MacKay, Chief Digital Storyteller, Mercer-MacKay Digital Storytelling
