Culture is at the core of a company’s ability to adapt, especially in times of chaos. In the age of COVID-19, companies the world over are being tested like never before. From the very beginning, Shopify has built an intentional culture rooted in an ability to thrive on change. This unique and carefully fostered culture has contributed to the company’s success in helping entrepreneurs in all corners of the globe start their own businesses and reach for independence. It’s also made the company one of Canada’s most respected employers. This webinar will explore the origins of Shopify’s culture and how those cultural attributes are enabling it to navigate through the changes associated with COVID-19.
