A company is only as strong as it’s team and we know that our people are what make us great. It’s an honour to be recognized along with many great SMEs in Canada who are raising the bar to create cultures of excellence.”

Since its inception in 2000, Points has grown from a technology start-up to a global industry leader developing best-in-class loyalty technology and partnering with over 50 of the world’s largest loyalty brands. Points actively seeks to promote an innovative and engaging work atmosphere, giving employees the freedom to think big with the resources to make things happen.
