Canadian Workplace Culture Report 2021

The Canadian Workplace Culture Index (CWCI) and the Angus Reid Institute set out to gather Canadian’s opinions about workplace culture and create an index representing how Canadians felt about workplace culture, in the midst of the global COVID pandemic. In 2021, we conducted a survey of full-time employed Canadians from across the country and from workplaces of various sizes and industries.

“There were many surprising results to come out of this survey, not least of which was that BIPOC Canadians were three times more likely to have lost their job as a result of COVID-19,” said CWCI Founder and CEO Antonio Zivanovic.

“Additionally, the feedback that large companies have the highest loyalty rates was a surprise and shows that these organizations are the ones making strides in employee retention.”
