The Future of Work

Someday.png

The Someday Experiment

The week has seven days in it and none of them are called "someday". Polar is experimenting with a four-day work week, to make space for someday, today.

Work From Anywhere

Polar permanently closed its physical office spaces in New York, Toronto, London and Sydney, and has embraced a fully distributed culture on a long-term basis.

Flowday & Flowtime

Tuesdays at Polar have been renamed to Flowday, with no internal meetings to encourage distraction-free days.

Additionally, Polar has a meeting-light, Slack-light and no internal email culture to encourage Flowtime daily.

Profit Share Plan

Everyone at Polar participates in an annual profit share plan, which is budgeted in advance. This additional recognition is designed to reward effectiveness and efficiency in our business.

 

This type of incentive keeps everyone aligned and encourages collaborative work, regardless of role, location or experience.

Unplug

We have made an explicit commitment to take responsibility in doing our part to support our team’s mental health and emotional wellbeing at work.

 

Our minimum time away (vacation) policy is four weeks per year. And time away means time away from the screen. 

Co-op Recruitment

Over the past decade, Polar has hired over 300 co-op students from the University of Waterloo and many have gone on to start companies. We pride ourselves on creating an amazing environment for students.

 

We believe in providing regular and structured feedback to students and ask for it often as well.
