Here are some of the reasons why Clio was selected as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People (2021):

  • Clio prepares new employees for success with an in-depth onboarding program (called a "launch plan") that can last anywhere from six weeks to three months -- onboarding takes place in cohorts to foster relationships among colleagues, and to encourage employees to form connections with individuals beyond their immediate team early on
  • Every quarter, employees at Clio can participate in a two-day hackathon, working in teams to solve a problem of their choice (which does not have to be work-related) and present their creative solutions to the company
  • New employees can participate in Basecamp Essentials, a "taster" of Clio's three-month leadership development program, which teaches core leadership skills of feedback and communication
Clio hosts a two-day hachathon every quarter to encourage employee innovation and creativity
