Genetec Inc., a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People by Mediacorp Canada.
Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is organised 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 organisation.
Genetec was recognised 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 programmes, subsidised gourmet healthy meals, an on-site kinesiologist, and a fitness centre, young team members at Genetec benefit from many training and continuing education opportunities, including an apprenticeship programme to help candidates without the right qualifications to gain the necessary experience and skillset on the job.
The company prides itself on its active internship programme to help the next generation of talented individuals get a head start in their careers. Every year, Genetec offers over 400 software engineering, sales, and marketing intern positions with many leading to full-time employment.
“We are very proud to be recognised 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 organisation.”
Headquartered in the Technoparc Montréal, just steps away from the city’s coming light rail service, the company 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.
