Clearly recognized as one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada

Clearly has been named one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada, recognized for its commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive culture where employees can feel heard and empowered 

Founded in 2000, Clearly has grown to become one of the world’s leading online eyewear retailersEmployee satisfaction and inclusiveness have always been at the heart of the company’s operations and remain a key factor in its success. 

CEO Arnaud Bussieres says: “We are where we are today because the people working within this organization got us here. It’s as simple as that. It might sound like a cliché, but I truly mean it when I say that everyone brings something special to the table that helps to drive us forward. I’m so proud to lead a team of such diverse, talented, and kind individuals.” 

The 2020 Best Workplaces™ in Canada process is based on two criteria: employee feedback (through confidential employee survey resultsand an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. Clearly excelled in each of these areas, demonstrating a culture that values and practices credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.  

Clearly aims to create a positive workspace environment that employees can thrive in, both physically and mentally.   

The team at the head office in downtown Vancouver enjoys 360° views of mountains and sea, with two balconies that are perfect for sunny outdoor meetings and lunches. Clearly also has plans to transition its warehouse this year from the current location in East Vancouver to a purpose-built space in Richmond, featuring the latest state-of-the-art equipment and plenty of natural light.  

As well as a positive work environment, employees are given the resources they need to maintain a healthy work-life balance, including:

  • Extended medical coverage 
  • RRSP matching,
