TORONTO, April 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Softchoice, a leading North American technology solutions and managed services company, is honored to once again be named a Best Workplace in Canada by the Great Place to Work Institute. This marks the 10th straight year Softchoice has received the prestigious designation, capping a decade of recognition as one of Canada's most engaging corporate cultures. Softchoice is just one of four organizations to make the list for all 10 years it's been around in Canada.
"The root of our success as a company has always been our people, and providing them with the opportunities and the environment to do their best work and grow professionally and personally," said David MacDonald, Softchoice's President and CEO. "Our people are the ones who bring our culture to life, they're our greatest ambassadors with clients and the communities we serve. They deserve the recognition for making Softchoice the best place to develop a career in the fast paced, always evolving IT industry."
To earn a spot on the Best Workplace list, Softchoice was evaluated by the Great Place to Work Institute on a wide range of criteria including, company values, hiring practices, open communication, employee recognition, and development opportunities. The majority of the Institute's assessment, however, is based on feedback from the employees themselves.
Softchoice's award-winning corporate culture has a lot to do with its focus on growing and developing its employees. This includes providing open and transparent communication on the performance, direction and opportunities facing Softchoice. It includes offering comprehensive training, such as leadership development and highly sought after technical and vendor certifications. And it includes multi-faceted reward and recognition programs. Softchoice employees also have numerous opportunities to participate in employee-led philanthropic activities, like Softchoice Cares.
"Our people are this company's driving force from delivering superior results for our clients, to finding efficiencies to improve the business, to developing new offerings and services," MacDonald said. "Being named a 'Best Workplace' for 10 straight years is a testament to the driven, dedicated and extraordinary people we have at Softchoice."
As a leading North American provider of IT solutions and managed services, Softchoice combines the efficiency and reliability of a national IT supplier with the personal touch and technical expertise of a local solutions provider. Softchoice's holistic approach to technology includes solution design, implementation, asset management and cloud services, as well as access to one of the most comprehensive and cost-effective technology distribution networks in North America. With over 1,200 employees, Softchoice manages the technology needs of thousands of corporate and public sector organizations across the United States and Canada.
