Quebec-based dev recognised as one of country's 'most promising growth companies'

Independent developer Frima Studio has been named among Canada’s top ten most admired corporate cultures.

The annual award show recognised the Quebec-based studio for being one of Canada’s “most promising growth companies”, with a commitment to creating a positive corporate culture for its employees.

The developer currently houses 360 employees full-time, and runs an internal ‘Frimagination’ program to allow its team members to present ideas for potential personal game development projects that can be worked on during work time. Developers also then receive a share of the revenue if the game is a success.

“Only a few months removed from our certification for exceptional Work-Family Balance by the Quebec Ministry of Family, this latest recognition further validates the investment we make in each of our employees,” said Frima CEO Steve Couture.

“We consistently find that building a supportive and flexible workplace leads to healthier, more productive employees that endeavor to hit our ambitious growth goals.”

Waterstone Human Capital president David Kinley, which hosted the awards, added: “We’re thrilled that Frima Studio has been named one of Canada’s 10 in the Growth and Small Cap category. Our Canada’s 10 board was impressed with this submission, and with Frima’s leadership.

"This is an organisation with a caring and strong culture, showing exceptional growth and performance. Congratulations to Frima’s leadership team and to all of its team members.”
