One of Canada’s Best Workplaces!

We couldn’t be more excited to be ranked 5th best workplace in Canada.

One of Canada’s Best Workplaces!

We are thrilled to share some fantastic news with our DrugBank community and beyond—thanks to our incredible team, DrugBank has been named one of the best places to work in Canada by the Great Place to Work® Institute! 

This is the third year in a row we’ve landed a spot on the list, and the second year in a row we’ve ranked in the Top 5, landing in 5th place in the under 100 employees category this year. Companies are recognized on the annual list based on the experience and sentiment of their employees, and we’re so proud to be recognized.

At DrugBank, we’ve always said that we’re nothing without our wildly intelligent and passionate team. Whether on a technical team, a customer-facing team, or supporting business operations, everyone at DrugBank is dedicated to transforming the world of medicine. Our co-founder and CEO, Michael Wilson, sums it up best, “From day one, our goal was to create an environment where our team could thrive, and I’m more confident than ever that our team culture is a cornerstone of our success.”

We’re committed to continuously improving how we show up for our team, who dedicate so much of their efforts to growing our company. From our compensation philosophy, our custom onboarding programs, to our flexible work culture, and time off policies, we aim to provide our team with the ability to lead a thriving life—both during and outside of work.

Shay Barker, our Director of People and Culture, puts it this way: “This award is so meaningful because it reflects how our team feels about us. We wouldn’t have ranked where we did without the commitment of our whole team in building an incredible and ever evolving culture. We strive to equip our teams with everything they need to do great work, and in turn we attract great, intelligent, and hardworking people that make a huge impact on our company.”

Being recognized as a top employer is not just an honor, it’s a reminder of what we’ve built together and an exciting step toward the future working really hard to create. As we continue to build and evolve we remain committed to being a people-centric organization. 

To our team, our partners, and everyone who believes in what we do at DrugBank—thank you!
