At Canvas, culture is more important than strategy because it defines the quality of people the company hires. CEO James Quigley believes strategy shifts and change, but culture is consistent—and he wants to build a great company filled with amazing employees. According to team members, Canvas’ culture enables them to be creative and innovative—and that leads to really sound strategies.
Work-life balance is built into Canvas’ company culture. The whole team participates in happy hours, plays video games together, and attends baseball games outside the office. Every employee works incredibly hard, but they still know how to have a good time. Canvas employees are not just colleagues, they’re friends—both in and out of the office.
