What employees say: “The owners, Catherine and Mark Graham, have a massive passion for the promotional products industry, entrepreneurship and helping people and companies become their best selves. All of these traits trickle down through the rest of the company.… The company empowers me to make my own decisions and my own mistakes, and invests in not only my professional development as a leader, but also as a person.”

What CEO Catherine Graham and President and Chief Brand Officer Mark Graham say: "To drive home [commonsku's] values, we officially moved to a 'work from anywhere' model. Prior to this, we had an office culture where our Toronto team members would come to work in person every day. In the past year, we have learned that work can be so much more productive when a team member has the flexibility to choose where they wish to work. Technology makes it so much easier for us to be productive in today’s business climate. Our company is now about 40% Toronto-based and 60% across the U.S. and Canada. Access to a much broader talent pool has turbocharged our growth."
