Grow personally and professionally
Learning is a big part of our culture because we know it’s the best way to grow our business and ourselves. It starts with Launch Pad (our week-long orientation for new Benevity-ites) and continues with Moonshot Academy, where all of us can access Benevity-specific training and certification. And then there’s our regular Hackers on various work and life topics, product training sessions and our MentorShip program, where small groups from different teams get together to mentor and learn from each other.
Our people tell us again and again that our leadership team is the most transparent they’ve seen. Whether it’s weekly updates at all-hands meetings, our bi-annual “Hugs” where we align on our vision, our annual Homecoming event that brings our people across the globe together in one place or Slack updates from our leaders, we keep you in the loop.
Make work more meaningful
Our entire business is built on the idea that when you provide people with a meaningful employee experience, that’s when a cultural shift happens (at work and in the world). So we empower everyone to support the causes they care about most — through giving, volunteering or positive actions — and then we amplify your efforts with rewards and matching.
Have good fun
We like to have fun at Benevity — and do a little good while we’re at it. So on any given day you’ll find our people volunteering in our communities or making donations to see our leaders wearing watermelon helmets or plummeting into a dunk tank. Our biggest event is our annual Rock the Causebah concert, where talented Benevity-ite bands take the stage to raise funds for causes close to their hearts. (Last year it raised nearly $40,000!)
Connect with each other
To connect people and provide a sense of belonging, we assign every new hire a Benevi-buddy so you have a friendly face to grab coffee with and help answer your questions. And our optional Chat Roulette program randomly pairs people up across teams and geographies each month to chat, share and learn from each other.
Your mental and physical health are important to us, so we offer regular yoga and meditation classes, as well as weekly mental health sessions on Zoom. And through the “Not Myself Today” initiative by the Canadian Mental Health Association, we have a portal for mental health resources, tools and activities to raise awareness, reduce stigma and ultimately help us build a safe and supportive place to work.
