We are proud to announce that ODAIA has officially been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute®. We are grateful to have received this certification that is awarded based on direct feedback from our employees that was provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their experience working at ODAIA. Being in high growth mode, it’s all about teamwork and winning together; which is why we are thankful for our passionate team here at ODAIA.  

"We are thrilled to be certified as a Great Place to Work. We are committed to creating a positive and rewarding environment where our team can thrive, and we are proud to be recognized for our efforts."
- Philip Poulidis, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder

Having a high-quality work environment is a top priority for us here at ODAIA, ensuring that our dedicated employees feel supported and valued. We strongly believe in having a healthy work-life balance, which we encourage by implementing company-wide wellness days off and extended long weekends for staff to focus on their well-being and relationships, regular check-ins with our team members, and regular company events and activities to have fun together. Being a fully-remote company, we ensure our team continually feels connected and keeps its collaborative, community approach.

“It’s a phenomenal, collaborative community of inclusivity and diversity we have here at ODAIA. There are a lot of different talents from all walks of life. We are constantly encouraged to come up with unique ideas and trusted to make important decisions. The culture encourages everyone to help one another with cross-departmental collaboration,”
says one of our employees when asked to describe the culture at ODAIA.

According to Great Place to Work, certification has become a national benchmark of positive company culture with a requirement of at least 65% of a company's current employees saying that it's a great place to work, compared to the U.S. national average sitting at just 49%. In our company results, ODAIA scored an outstanding 96% for its overall Trust Index® Score.

”The Great Place to Work Canada survey results really showcased that our culture building at ODAIA is on the right track. It’s such a good feeling to know that our team really enjoys working here, I’m so proud.”
- Helen Kontozopoulos, Chief Tech Evangelist & Co-Founder

Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues.

"Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What's more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency,"
Fonseca said.

According to Great Place to Work, research has shown that those working at a Certified great workplace are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work.

We are excited for the continued growth of our company and to bring our vision to life by guiding humans to improved health journeys, through our collective experiences.
