We Are We

At Benevity, we believe in the power of we over me. You see it in the way our technology powers collective action, and you see it in our culture where we solve for the whole team. 

We-Are-We

What We’re About

Our culture is a lot of things because it’s the collection of each of our people’s unique passions, skills and perspectives. But what we all have in common is our belief in the power of we over me, our insatiable appetite for impact and our unrelenting commitment to catalyzing good in the world through great technology and great people.

What we are about

Life at Benevity

Grow personally and professionally

Learning is a big part of our culture because we know it’s the best way to grow our business and ourselves. It starts with Launch Pad (our week-long orientation for new Benevity-ites) and continues with Moonshot Academy, where all of us can access Benevity-specific training and certification. And then there’s our regular Hackers on various work and life topics, product training sessions and our MentorShip program, where small groups from different teams get together to mentor and learn from each other.

Get transparency

Our people tell us again and again that our leadership team is the most transparent they’ve seen. Whether it’s weekly updates at all-hands meetings, our bi-annual “Hugs” where we align on our vision, our annual Homecoming event that brings our people across the globe together in one place or Slack updates from our leaders, we keep you in the loop.

Make work more meaningful

Our entire business is built on the idea that when you provide people with a meaningful employee experience, that’s when a cultural shift happens (at work and in the world). So we empower everyone to support the causes they care about most — through giving, volunteering or positive actions — and then we amplify your efforts with rewards and matching.

Have good fun

We like to have fun at Benevity — and do a little good while we’re at it. So on any given day you’ll find our people volunteering in our communities or making donations to see our leaders wearing watermelon helmets or plummeting into a dunk tank. Our biggest event is our annual Rock the Causebah concert, where talented Benevity-ite bands take the stage to raise funds for causes close to their hearts. (Last year it raised nearly $40,000!)

Connect with each other

To connect people and provide a sense of belonging, we assign every new hire a Benevi-buddy so you have a friendly face to grab coffee with and help answer your questions. And our optional Chat Roulette program randomly pairs people up across teams and geographies each month to chat, share and learn from each other.

Pride

Stay healthy

Your mental and physical health are important to us, so we offer regular yoga and meditation classes, as well as weekly mental health sessions on Zoom. And through the “Not Myself Today” initiative by the Canadian Mental Health Association, we have a portal for mental health resources, tools and activities to raise awareness, reduce stigma and ultimately help us build a safe and supportive place to work.

Healthy
I love what we stand for, what our Mission is, our “get things done” attitude, and the flexibility to accomplish all that in the manner that works best for us.

What We Stand For

HAAAPII

 

Humility

We solve for the whole team and have the mindset that there’s always more to learn.

Authenticity

We care enough to give each other the straight goods, with honest and constructive feedback.

Adaptability

We thrive in gray areas, we’re open to new ideas and we can shift focus as needed.

Accountability

We take responsibility for our actions, share credit, strive for better and others can rely on us.

Passion

We bring our passions and purpose to work and have a genuine interest in making a difference.

Innovation

We’re tenacious about finding smart solutions and nuts about results — for our clients, our team and ourselves.

Impact

We’re focused on better, so you won’t hear us say “because that’s the way we’ve always done it.”
