Danby CEO Jim Estill reads about the accolades they’ve received

Special recognition was given to Danby for their adjustments in regard to remote work.

“Danby Products introduced a hybrid working model for some employees, loaning needed technology and furniture for home offices. Employees can also apply to work remotely up to three months outside Canada. Employees share in the company’s success through an annual profit-sharing plan; company has a charitable program focused on helping sponsor and resettle new Canadians and refugees; and the company offers a hybrid working model that allows some employees to work off-site up to three days per week.”

Estill followed by stating “That’s why we wanted to maintain a healthy balance of in office and remote working conditions for our team members. After all, without the hard work and commitment they provide, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
