At Left, we’re incredibly proud of our award-winning team! This past year the team was recognized for the efforts of many years of hard work, dedication, and — of course, our vibrant culture that exists because of our awesome Lefties.

Read on for the summary of the awards we were recognized with this year.

Canada’s Top 100 Employers

Left was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers on Mediacorp Canada Inc.’s 2019 list. With only 36 Canadian-based employees at the time of the application, Left was the smallest company of the top 100 organizations, some of which had up to 65,000 Canadian employees.


Now entering its 20th year, the 2019 Canada’s Top 100 Employers List is a national competition to find employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Employers are rigorously graded by Mediacorp Canada Inc. on eight criteria, and still there are an increasing number of applications each year. Left’s scores for the eight categories of criteria were: Physical Workplace (A+), Work Atmosphere and Communications (A+), Financial Benefits and Compensation (B+), Health and Family-Friendly benefits (B+), Vacation & Time-off (A-), Employee Engagement and Performance (A), Training & Skills Development (A+), and Community Involvement (A+).

An internal analysis of the scoring revealed that with those ‘grades’ and only 36 employees, we earned a ‘GPA’ of 3.63, which placed us in a tie for 7th place in the top 100 organizations!

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ and the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™

Left was selected from hundreds of nominations based on its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold innovation. Our organization earned the spot as 16th on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ list in Canada, and 101st on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ list in North America. Left’s impressive revenue growth of 409.08% from 2014–2017 on the strength of its subsidiary, Left Travel Inc., was a deciding factor in making both lists.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry. Now in its 21st year, the program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500™, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
