In keeping with its people-centric culture and approach to business
Health today launched its “Get
a Taste of Life at Klick” experiential recruiting campaign,
leveraging proven tactics typically reserved for marketing products and
services to consumers.
“We know that one of the biggest things any job candidate wants to know
is what it’s really like to work where they’re interviewing,”
said Klick Health CEO Leerom Segal. “Just like consumer packaged goods
companies know the effectiveness of sampling and other experiential
marketing programs, we want to give people a real taste of the Klick
experience as we continue to grow and hire the industry’s best and
According to Suzanne Fanning, president of Chicago-based Word of Mouth
Marketing Association, “Good experiences spark more conversations than
ads, articles, and coupons combined. People should be at the heart of
everything companies do, even sharing their corporate culture with
prospective employees – and a little ice cream never hurts either.”
The integrated experiential recruiting campaign hit the city’s downtown
streets today with concierge-themed street teams serving ice cream from
a Klick-branded ice cream truck and cart, paying homage to Klick’s
fully-stocked ice-cream freezer at the office. Later this week, Klick
will bring its Tavern program to popular agency watering holes.
Local web/app developers and agency types are also being invited to
tweet @KlickConcierge to try the company’s unique concierge service,
which regularly orders dinner and runs errands for ‘Klicksters’ to make
their lives easier.
Concierge-planned baby shower?
Klick Concierge’s other
office responsibilities include managing the agency’s on-site health and
wellness centre (offering free daily yoga and fitness classes) and
convenient dry cleaning service, as well as handling customized tasks
for employees, as required.
Some of the Klick Concierge’s more unique, unexpected recent tasks
Researching baby shower gifts;
Arranging a honeymoon;
Helping plan a bachelor party;
Finding staff temporary living accommodations; and
Sending personalized gifts to spouses/partners of employees who were
snowed-in at an out-of-town client meeting on Valentine’s Day.
Most Admired Corporate Culture and Best Managed Company
was recently ranked one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for the third
year running, moving up to #9 this year in the sub-1,000-employee
category. In 2013, Klick won 85 awards for its client work, corporate
management and culture, including being named one of Canada’s 10 Most
Admired Corporate Cultures, 50 Best Managed Companies, and 50 Best
What’s more, the company’s unique culture inspired the writing of the New
York Times’ Bestselling business book, The Decoded Company
(Portfolio/Penguin), which also profiles progressive management
practices at Google, Starbucks, Valve, and Whole Foods.
Toronto-based web/app developers and agency types are invited to use the
Klick Concierge this summer by tweeting @KlickConcierge.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
