Pythian is recognized for its progressive career development initiatives and superior benefits program
OTTAWA, Ontario—February 5, 2014—Pythian, the global leader in data management consulting and managed services, has been selected as one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for 2014 by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This announcement comes on the heels of Pythian’s recent ranking among Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers for 2014. The National Capital award recognizes Ottawa-area employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Pythian understands and values the positive relationship between employee satisfaction and company success, and is committed to providing a supportive, educational, and engaging work environment for its more than 250 employees worldwide. In an effort to develop a compelling career and work-life balance, Pythian offers an array of employee-centric workplace programs, such as training subsidies, a Volunteer Day program, and additional leave for new parents.
Employers in the National Capital region were compared to other organizations in their fields to determine the companies with the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. They were evaluated based on eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial, and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
“Canada’s National Capital Region is home to thousands of public and private companies spanning a wide variety of industries and sectors,” said Heidi Hauver, Director of Human Resources at Pythian. “As one of Ottawa’s top employers, we aim to set a new benchmark of excellence for other employers in our province. We not only strive to craft a positive company culture but we continually seek to support the leading data talent in the world, and are currently looking to add 38 new full-time positions.”
