Winning Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ award distinguishes Firmex for a company culture that enhances performance and sustains a competitive advantage.

Firmex, a global provider of virtual data rooms where more deals, diligence, and compliance gets done, today proudly announced being named as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures.™ Now in its 17th year, the award recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having cultures that enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

“We are honoured at Firmex to be recognized for having one of Canada's most admired corporate cultures. This award is a reflection of our long-standing philosophy that leadership doesn’t drive culture, but provides an environment for one to thrive,” said Joel Lessem, CEO of Firmex. “We do this by hiring motivated, inclusive, and curious people, while focusing more on the person rather than their resume. We then give them the autonomy to contribute, so that everyone at Firmex drives the culture.”

“We’re proud to receive this award that recognizes Firmex’s employee driven culture—one where we truly care about each other, where we are all motivated by our core values of respect, collaboration, humour, and success,” said Sarah Fulton, Senior Director of Human Resources at Firmex.

“This year’s winning organizations have all demonstrated an outstanding commitment to corporate culture and to leveraging their culture as a competitive advantage. They all align to three key themes: they are focused on building a high-performance culture, committed to employee career development and growth, and focused on creating a workplace culture that supports physical and psychological safety for their team members,” said Marty Parker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waterstone Human Capital and Chair of Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures Awards.
