WATERLOO, ON, March 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that they have been recognized by Great Places to Work Canada as being one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for Women.
To be eligible for this recognition, organizations had to be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, have a minimum of 50 female employees, and provide a male/female breakdown by job level. Sandvine's female Team Members also had to have a minimum 90% positive response to the statement "I am treated fairly regardless of my gender," as well as demonstrate high levels of workplace trust and involvement in people programs that support women.
One of the people programs which Sandvine was recognized for is "The Women of Sandvine." Each month this group gathers for different how-to workshops and seminars from senior leaders and other professionals who offer guidance and mentorship. Topics covered at these sessions have included leadership, personal branding, powerful presentations, negotiating, healthy living, and emotional intelligence.
In addition to being one of the best workplaces for women, Sandvine has also been regularly recognized as one of the Great Places to Work in Canada. This recognition has been awarded thanks to challenges, opportunities, benefits, and perks which allow Sandvine Team Members to work hard and play hard in the office, and manage their busy lives outside of it.
Sandvine provides flexible working hours which allow the opportunity to balance home and work demands. Maternity leave top-up makes it easier for moms to spend the formative weeks with a new baby. Profit sharing gives Team Members the chance to share in the company's success. And in-house refreshments and games offer the chance to unwind with friends in the office.
"Sandvine is proud to be named as one of the best workplaces in Canada for women. This recognition will provide us with a unique differentiator when attracting top talent to Sandvine in both the Waterloo Region and across the globe," said Dave Caputo, CEO, Sandvine. "Our female Team Members are critical to Sandvine's success. Without their involvement throughout all areas of our business, we would not be able to help our customers build a smarter Internet."
