Axis Communications has announced that Axis Canada has been named on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces in Canada by Great Place to Work, an analytics and consulting firm.

Great Place to Work bills itself as the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and leadership actions.

Axis ranked in the top companies in technology based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an anonymous survey about the workplace experience from Great Place to Work.

To be eligible for the list, organizations must be Great Place to Work-Certified—a certification offered by the firm after collecting information about company culture—in the past year and work primarily in the technology sector. The selection process included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits, programs and company practices. Great Place to Work says it evaluates each application using methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition as a Great Place to Work in technology,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications Inc., in a prepared statement. “This recognition and our overall success are a direct result of our company culture and core values, embraced by all employees. We strive to maintain a culture of innovation and collaboration as we continue to grow.”

This award is the latest in a series of similar honors for Axis: In November 2018, Axis Canada was named Employer of the Year at the Mississauga Board of Trade’s 2018 Business Awards of Excellence. Axis was also recognized as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work, ranking within the top five of workplaces with fewer than 100 employees within Canada. Additionally, Axis was named one of the 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces in the United States by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
