    At Cheeky Monkey, one of our goals is to have fun at work. After all, it's been said that the average worker spends 5 hours and 41 minutes per day at their desk, so why not make the most of it? That being said, we take our work very seriously and it shows. Cheeky Monkey was recently named not only as a top web design company in Canada, but also as one of the best web developers from leading technology research firm Clutch.
