MONTREAL — WorkJam today announced that Steven Kramer, CEO & Co-Founder of WorkJam, has been named an EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 finalist for the region of Québec. Now in its 29th year in Canada, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program fosters, links and empowers Canadian entrepreneurs as they transform innovative concepts into influential businesses that make a significant impact both nationally and globally. The 2023 finalists were selected by an independent panel of judges on criteria including entrepreneurial spirit, growth, impact and objective.

“I am honored to be recognized by EY and their distinguished judges for this entrepreneurial honor,” said Steven Kramer, CEO & Co-Founder of WorkJam. “It has been incredibly rewarding to see the positive impact WorkJam’s solutions are making in the life of millions of frontline workers in over 38 countries, providing flexibility, financial stability and a better work-life balance to workers often left behind. Solving labor, turnover and productivity challenges across industries, while also driving the advancement, engagement and economic progress of frontline workers is at the heart of what we do. This recognition comes at a critical time in the labor movement. I congratulate everyone at WorkJam for the impact they are making, in partnership with our customers, who are putting an end to the status quo and improving the quality of life of their frontline employees,” continued Mr. Kramer.
