Why culture matters: Our perspective at Field Effect

Loading table of contents...

In the fast-paced world of cybersecurity, where every second counts and every detail matters, you'd probably assume things are pretty serious at Field Effect.

While it’s true that protecting our clients, supporting our MSP partners, and keeping threats at bay is always our number one priority, we do find ways to bring levity into the workplace.

After all, creating an exceptional work environment is key to maintaining the high level of excellence needed to safeguard businesses effectively.

A culture worth highlighting

Why does our culture deserve to be highlighted? Because it's the foundation of everything we do and it’s an intentional and strategic element of our success.


It's what allows us to attract and retain top talent, innovate and excel, and create a workplace where employees feel valued and motivated. In a field as critical and demanding as cybersecurity, our culture is what sets us apart and allows us to continue delivering top-tier cybersecurity.

Work hard, connect often

A deep sense of purpose and pride permeates through Field Effect when it comes to our product and protecting our clients. We are intentional about taking time to celebrate our team's successes and fostering meaningful connections beyond work.

That's why, over the past couple of months, we've held events like:

  • Virtual Cyber Drop: for our remote teammates around the globe, we spent a Friday afternoon in April racing against the clock to solve puzzles in a themed escape room.
  • Wellness Challenge: for the full month of May, teams earned points for activities that enhanced their well-being, such as socializing with colleagues, acts of kindness, eating away from their desks, and taking care of themselves.

  • Field Olympics: In the last week of June, we gathered on the big field at TD Place in Ottawa for a day of friendly competition, team-building, laughter, and of course, ice cream.

These events help us recharge, foster a stronger sense of camaraderie, and let us return to work as even better teammates.
