Canale Communications Named One of San Diego’s ‘Best Places to Work’

Canale Communications Inc., an award-winning life science communications firm, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego. This annual award is presented by the San Diego Business Journal and Best Companies Group, and it consists of a two-part survey process, contributed by both the employer and the employees.

“Being named one of San Diego’s best places to work, for the second year in a row, is so meaningful to me on many different levels,” said Carin Canale-Theakston, the agency’s founder and chief executive officer. “When it comes down to it, all of CanaleComm’s core strengths—hard work, intelligent strategy, effective communications—rest upon a team that is supportive, energetic and happy with their workplace. Ultimately, this is what the award helps to showcase, and the reason why I truly take it to heart.”

The Best Places to Work survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in San Diego—benefitting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. The list is divided into four groups: small companies (15-49 employees), medium-sized companies (50-249 employees), large companies (250-1,999 employees) and mega-sized companies (2,000 or more employees). CanaleComm is again recognized in the “Small Companies” category.

Canale Communications’ reputation for consistently delivering impressive life science strategy is made possible by the positive and open culture the firm fosters. The unofficial company motto, “Work hard, play hard,” is not only inscribed on the complimentary yoga mats used for weekly bootcamp-style workouts, but also reflected by each employee’s workplace behavior and contributions. Now in its seventh year, with twenty-four full time employees and more than 300 life science clients served to-date, Canale Communications has grown tremendously in size and experience since its founding in 2009.
