Here are some of the reasons why Kinaxis Inc. was selected as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers (2017):
- Kinaxis cultivates an ownership culture through a share purchase plan and generous year-end bonuses (varying with position) -- the company also encourages employees to become recruiters, offering generous referral bonuses of up to $4,000 for successful referrals
- Kinaxis hosts a "Hackathon Week" to challenge employees to utilize their skills and creativity to improve and innovate the company's products -- employees present their final ideas at the "Hackathon Hoscar Party"
- Kinaxis invests in ongoing employee development with tuition subsidies for courses both related and unrelated to their current role, and provides opportunities for new and recent graduates to gain on-the-job experience through co-op placements and paid internships
