TORONTO , Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Givex Information Technology Group Ltd. ("Givex") (TSX: GIVX) announced today its global remote work policy. With more than 310 employees in 12 offices across 10 countries, this announcement marks a major move for the Toronto-based company.

"It has been almost 30 months since our teams left our offices and started working from home in March 2020," said Don Gray, CEO of Givex. "During this time, we have proven that Givex can thrive in a remote work environment. The Givex executive management team made the decision to offer a full-time work from home policy to meet the needs of our hard-working, productive employees across the globe, while also providing the option to work in the office for those who desire to do so."

Since March 2020, Givex has met major business milestones while working remotely, including increasing annual revenue by more than 50%, maintaining positive cash flow, completing three acquisitions ( Loyalty Lane , Kalex and Pi Cash Systeme ), going public on the TSX in Canada and OTC in the U.S and created the Givex Hub in Brazil, which is now enabling millions of consumer transactions. Givex also added GivexPay and Merchant of Record to its services profile, added two data centers, made significant enhancements to its GivexPOS system and is in the process of installing 1,500+ new locations. The number of merchants using at least one Givex service has grown to over 115,000 active global locations.

"We are incredibly proud of our ability to pivot quickly to a remote working environment while increasing the size and scope of our team and not losing any significant client," said Gray. "In addition, we made several quick but thoughtful decisions about our internal systems to improve our communication and stay closely connected across our 12 offices."

Givex employees will be asked to attend two team meetings in the office per month for issue processing, idea sharing and collaboration (with social distancing recommendations followed closely), as well as quarterly events.

"The Givex team has done a fantastic job in the last two and a half years," said Gray. "Moving forward, we will continue to make major strides in our technology while keeping a laser focus on employee recruitment and retention."
