TORONTO - April 16, 2021 - (

BenchSci has been ranked 26 of the 50 Best Workplaces™ in Canada and certified a Great Place to Work® for the second consecutive year. The certification follows a thorough and independent analysis of hundreds of Canadian companies by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, based on extensive, direct, and anonymous feedback from over 82,000 employees about their workplace experience.

BenchSci's mission is to increase the speed and quality of life-saving research. The company provides AI-powered software for pharmaceutical research. Its platform empowers scientists to develop treatments faster, with fewer, more successful experiments. 

"We are committed to fostering an inclusive and inspiring culture as the team delivers technology that changes the world. Being recognized as a top workplace for this meaningful work and our strong culture is very affirming for a company as young as ours," says Liran Belenzon, BenchSci's CEO and cofounder. "Through this unprecedented year, we have prioritized mental health at work, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and support for remote work. I truly believe that people are the company and the company is the people." 

BenchSci places an intentional focus on building and scaling a supportive culture. A few of the factors that contributed to this best workplace status include:

  • Benefits that prioritize the team's mental and physical health 
  • A focus on building great people managers
  • Dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion 
  • Building remote teams and communities  

The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee-driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organization's culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. BenchSci's certification is for companies with 50 to 99 employees.
