Green 30 2013 Logo

Intelex was 12th in Maclean’s/Aon Hewitt’s The Green 30 2013 annual ranking of Canada’s greenest employers.

We’ve won awards for our corporate culture. Awards for financial performance. We’ve been named one of the Top 10 places to work in Canada at least four times in the last two years. But today we’re thrilled to be named one of Canada’s 30 greenest workplaces! And 12th at that – not too shabby!

That’s right, Intelex has been included in the Green 30 of 2013, a prestigious ranking of Canadian businesses that have incorporated environmental stewardship into their business model and corporate culture.

Intelex achieves awards trifecta!

So, we already shared the good news that in late 2012 professional services giant Deloitte named us one of Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies and also one of North America’s 500 fastest-growing tech businesses. Well, we’re proud to announce we’ve got another feather to put in our cap: Deloitte – in combination with CIBC and Queen’s School of Business – has named Intelex one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, effectively rounding out our ‘Deloitte trifecta’ (as we like to call it) for 2012.

In addition to an array of other accolades that have befallen Canada’s fifth-best employer, Intelex welcomes being included in this prestigious list of the best managed companies across Canada, of any size and in any location. There were 50 new companies to receive the designation this year, in addition to a number of re-certified companies.

Support for Movember at Intelex keeps growing

Do you hear that?  Yes that’s right, men around the world who are parting with their mustaches are weeping. Movember is now over but here at Intelex we have reason to cheer.

Last year about 12 Intelexians united to grow mustaches for the month of November to help raise money for men’s health awareness. During that run we raised $2,500, a sum Intelex President and CEO Mark Jaine matched for a total of $5,000.

This year the men at Intelex were ready to beat last year’s record and take the challenge to another level. That’s right, the ‘Mo Bros’ worked hard to gain every donation and with about 24 members this year we were ready with mustache combs in hand. Between leveraging Internet memes and internal campaigning, we used everything from cats to boots (no, not puss and boots) to boost awareness of our campaign. Every creative idea and … Read more...

Intelexians help Becel Ride for Heart raise $5 million for heart and stroke research

This past Sunday June 3, Intelexians joined over 13,000 cyclists celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Heart and Stroke’s Becel Ride for Heart and raising nearly $5 million for heart and stroke research, the highest ever for a ride.

Team Intelex continued its participation in the ride, raising $3,560. The rain and wind that was forecasted for the day held off and cyclists were treated to spectacular views of the Toronto skyline from Toronto’s Don Valley Parkway and Gardiner Expressway, views typically only available from an automobile.

Each of the 13,000 cyclists had their own motivations for being in the ride, whether it was a personal connection to the disease, participating in a good cause or a chance to flex their leg muscles.

For some like Gary Kao (pictured below), the ride represented a personal goal. “Although this is my second time around, it was a completely different experience,” … Read more...

Over 40 Intelexians vie for top spot in 2nd annual Intelex Spring Classic

After a beautiful day at Deer Creek Golf and Country Club, the Second Annual Intelex Spring Classic is in the books. This year more than 40 golfers entered the tournament vying for the top spot. Top honours go to the Team of Frank Friesen, Melanie Cook, Kellie Hart and Steve Buffett who came first with a score of 70. 

The 5,759-yard, par-70 track was made up of Deer Creek’s Ruby Course and Diamond course. This obviously did not pose a threat to the Intelex golfers as there was a second team that went low with a score of 70 but because of a tie-breaker they came in second. This team was Greg Bilous, Bryan Humphries, Matt Turczyn and Mitch Doyle, and they now have the experience to lead their team to victory next year.

The day was not all about going low but also about some individual achievement. Kristy Sadler … Read more...

Wow! We’re kinda pumped. For starters, it’s been an amazing year for Intelex, award-wise. From being named one of Canada’s 50 Best companies, to being singled out as one of the best GTA employers on two exclusive lists in the Globe and Mail and Toronto Star, the accolades have just kept coming, and last night was no different.
