Drumroll please…the results are in and we couldn’t be more thrilled: Intelex was named #11 in a study conducted by The Great Place to Work Institute of Canada for the fourth consecutive year. Members of the Intelex team were on hand last night at the awards ceremony at the Metro Convention Center in Toronto, to receive the award. We are humbled to be among Canada’s leading-edge companies who topped the prestigious list this year. But most importantly, we are excited to share this award with the entire team.
What makes Intelex a Great Place to Work?
At Intelex we understand the importance of keeping our employees’ work exciting, challenging and meaningful. One of our goals has always been to create a culture where employees enjoy coming into work every day, not to just do a job, but to be part of building something special. We invest in training and development for our workforce to grow their talents and capabilities by offering a variety of training and career development programs for our employees.
In addition, we also offer wellness options which support our employee’s health and personal welfare such a fitness allowance, gym memberships, as well as providing each of our employees with their own FitBit as part of our organization’s on-going initiative to promoting health and wellness in the workplace.
We also organize an array of events throughout the year to create a fun working environmental. We have our annual company retreat in Muskoka, which includes a talent show, dinner reception, and a winter classic hockey game, summer patio parties, family & friends movie night, monthly
birthday celebrations, bring your dog to work Mondays, free breakfast every Thursday, sponsored clubs and sports teams and a personal corporate concierge and so much more!
But most importantly, we involve and empower our employees by listening to their input, involving them in moving the organization forward, and giving them opportunities to lead initiatives, collaborate with one another, participate in decision-making, and encourage them to make a meaningful difference at work through their contributions.
The Significance of Being Recognized as a Great Place to Work
The list of Best Workplaces in Canada recognizes organizations which demonstrate a commitment towards building a positive work environment for their employees and fostering a culture which is built on camaraderie and trust. The annual award recognizes the top 50 companies which have demonstrated exceptional workplace culture. Notable recipients in the past have included companies such as Google, Microsoft, and AOL. Being named as a Great Place to Work is such an honor for Intelex and having made the list four years running is such a remarkable achievement and is icing on the cake to what has already been a phenomenal year thus far. We would also like to congratulate the other companies who were named to the Great Place to Work list as well.
