Genetec has announced that it has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People by MediaCorp Canada.
Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.
This special designation recognizes the employers that offer Canada’s best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers.
Companies are evaluated on their ability to attract and retain young workers, mentorship and training programs, growth and development opportunities and the percentage of young people in the organization.
Genetec says that it was recognized as a top employer based on its numerous employee-focused initiatives including a work environment that promotes creativity, innovation and teamwork.
Aside from flexible hours, health and wellness programs, subsidized gourmet healthy meals, an on-site kinesiologist and a fitness center, young team members at Genetec benefit from many training and continuing education opportunities, including an apprenticeship program to help candidates without the right qualifications to gain the necessary experience and skillset on the job.
Every year, the company offers over 400 software engineering, sales and marketing intern positions with many leading to full-time employment.
“We are very proud to be recognized as a top employer for young people in Canada,” said Richard Pailliere, Vice President of Human Resources, Genetec Inc.
“With a third of our workforce under 30 years old, this nomination reflects our commitment to fostering a dynamic and inclusive workplace that empowers the next generation of talent.
“We are thankful for the diverse perspectives, energy, and innovation our talented young employees bring to our organization.”
Headquartered in the Technoparc Montréal, just steps away from the city’s coming light rail service, the company highlights that it continues to expand to accommodate dynamic annual growth.
Genetec is currently recruiting for over 90 open positions in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
