Mediacorp Canada Inc., together with Vigilant - a DRW Company, today announced that the high tech firm is one of Montréal's Top Employers for the sixth consecutive year.
"We strive to create the best possible environment for our employees, who have become like family over the years," said Arvind Ramanthan, co-founder and managing director of Vigilant. "A creative, healthy, collaborative environment…that's what we're always trying to achieve through our benefits and perks, resources and offices, and we're honored to again be recognized for these efforts."
In October 2016, Vigilant moved into new headquarters in downtown Montréal. The three floors feature open and light-filled work spaces, plenty of jamming areas for informal meet-ups, and a café with views of Mount Royal for employees to enjoy during daily catered breakfast and lunch. Another highlight is a custom mural by local artist TAVA in the fully equipped game room.
The company also makes significant investment outside its walls by supporting many local organizations. In July, Vigilant employees will raise funds for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer through the "Vigi 4 Cure" team, with a goal to beat last year's record breaking total of more than $60,000. Vigilant also offers employees 40 hours of paid volunteering time annually to support local organizations of their choice.
Montréal's Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes area employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work and forward-thinking employee programs. Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition, including work atmosphere, benefits and community involvement.
