SYDNEY, August 05, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Canva, the global visual communications platform, today announced its inclusion in Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators annual list, which honors businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation. Canva was recognized for its continued drive to build new products that empower everyone to design while fostering a culture of creativity and innovation in all parts of the business.
"One of our company values is to set crazy big goals and make them happen, which encourages our whole team to dream big and innovate. We're proud to be recognized by Fast Company and celebrate the accomplishments of everyone at Canva," said Amy Schultz, Global Head of Talent Acquisition at Canva.
Canva is on an incredible journey to democratize design and allow everyone from individual consumers to large enterprises to embrace their creativity and communicate visually online. Earlier this year, the company launched Canva Presentations, which enables teams around the world to design with ease and collaborate at scale with the help of thousands of free templates. There have been more than 350 million presentations created on Canva so far.
In addition to product innovation, Canva is also committed to doing the most good in the world and has launched the Print One Plant One campaign from Canva Print — a 1-for-1 reforestation program that anticipates the sequestering of over 100,000 tons of carbon in its first year. This required innovation across Canva teams, from product marketing to sustainability, partnerships, procurement, and beyond.
"These leaders and teams created cultures of innovation and sustained them, even as remote work extended into 2021," says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. "This newest list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators honors those organizations that found ways to collaborate and invent despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, ensuring employees were at the forefront."
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2021 Best Workplaces for Innovators list ranks 100 winners from various industries. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers assessed nearly 1,500 applications worldwide before endorsing the top 100 companies.
