Points Named As One of Canadas Top

Great Place to Work® again
recognizes Points as one of the Best Workplaces for
TORONTO, March 8, 2018 Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced that it has again been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces for Women in Canada in 2018. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Points has been named a top employer for women.
Points received this honour based on independent analysis of survey data received directly from Points employees by Great Place to Work®. The award identifies organizations that foster levels of workplace trust experience by their female workforce as well as their people programs that support women.
We are so pleased to be recognized amongst our peers as one of the best workplaces in Canada for women, especially when this award is based on direct employee feedback, said Inez Murdoch, Chief People Officer at Points. We have very dedicated employees, both women and men, at Points who are committed to ensuring that we continue to improve and champion initiatives that encourage a culture of diversity, inclusion and equality.
Points promotes the recruitment and career development of women, creating an environment of equal opportunity. Points offers competitive benefits like flexible work-hours, maternity and parental support, and encourages strong relationships for women across departments through company-sponsored events and lunches. Points is actively involved in the Pyladies community, an international mentorship group with a focus on helping more women become active participants and leaders in the Python open-source community.
A diverse and inclusive workplace is our cultural fabric and is especially important to us, as we are in the technology industry where women are significantly underrepresented, said Rob MacLean, CEO at Points. Gender diversity is good business, it improves decision making and ensures that we can represent the markets that we serve.
