MONTREAL, Nov. 5, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Vigilant Global, together with Aon Hewitt, today announced the technology firm was named among Canada's 50 Best Small and Medium Employers for 2016. The Montreal-based firm is multi-year recipient of the honor and is consistently recognized as a top employer in both the province of Quebec and city of Montreal.
For the first time, Vigilant Global is being recognized as a Platinum Aon Best Employer, making the firm eligible for global Best Employer status. As part of Aon's transition to a single global Best Employer program, organizations must perform strongly on employee engagement, leadership, performance culture and employment brand to achieve Platinum level distinction.
"We wouldn't be where we are without our dedicated employees, so doing everything we can to ensure their happiness and well-being has always been part of Vigilant's purpose. In the same way we're striving to push technological boundaries, we're striving to reward and support our teams, so it's an honor to once again be recognized as a Best Employer," said Arvind Ramanathan, co-founder and managing director of Vigilant Global.
Vigilant Global offers employees a strong package of traditional benefits, as well as many unconventional perks. These perks include daily catered breakfast and lunch, a $500 annual allowance for activities outside of work with colleagues, weekly subsidized organic urban-grown/produced groceries, and a monthly paid gym membership.
Aon Hewitt conducts three separate surveys: an employee survey, a leadership survey, and a Human Resources practices questionnaire. Earlier this year, all of Vigilant Global's employees were invited to participate in the confidential engagement survey created and managed by Aon Hewitt. Results are kept confidential until after the formal announcement.
