Freshbooks knows benefits of happy employees

Toronto software company Freshbooks (featured in Yonge Street back in January 2010) goes to great lengths to attract and retain the best talent. As reported by the National Post, Freshbooks provides a flexible and familial office environment that keeps its 60+ employees happy and working hard.

"Small business owners, particularly those who require employees to have a specialized skill, can often find it difficult to compete with large companies when seeking to expand staff.That is because large companies can offer rewarding salaries, benefits and perks, while comparatively smaller companies need to be creative to ensure they can retain existing staff and recruit talent as its client base increases."

"One small company that has leveraged its creativity to retain and recruit talent is FreshBooks, an online invoicing and bookkeeping service for small businesses and independent professionals."

"Because employees at FreshBooks' downtown Toronto office are young, the company has made a conscious effort to provide a workplace environment that provides flexibility and few office rules, says Mike McDerment, chief executive and co-founder of FreshBooks."
