We are pleased to announce that today FINCAD was named one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers of 2019. FINCAD has been recognized for our innovative work environment, health, financial, and family benefits, generous time off policy, training and skills development opportunities, social activities and community involvement.
Now in its 6th year, Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition recognizing the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation's best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers are evaluated in eight areas including: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family \Benefits (4) Vacation & Time Off (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. I’m happy to report that FINCAD excelled in each of these categories.
In addition to this latest distinction, I’d also like to mention that in February, FINCAD was named one of BC’s 100 Top Employers for 2019! This year marks the tenth time that FINCAD has been recognized. We feel honored to have been able to attain this status year after year.
What is it that sets FINCAD apart as an employer?
Firstly, we lead the market in delivering enterprise risk and valuation technology that enables firms to make on-point investment and risk management decisions. Our industry is fast-paced, interesting and high-growth. We work hard to foster an encouraging culture with ample opportunities for our employees to grow themselves professionally, including paid internships, training programs and reimbursement for relevant educational courses and certifications.
It is very important to us that our employees feel appreciated for their hard work, thus we offer benefits such as a generous vacation policy, maternity leave top-ups, options for telecommuting and flexible work hours, and eligibility for all permanent employees to receive incentive variable compensation. We also provide numerous opportunities for our employees to build relationships with each other through our Ministry of Fun, a committee that helps organize social activities throughout the year. Our philosophy is that investing in good employees is one of the most vital investments an organization can make.
At FINCAD, we also place strong importance on giving back. We encourage volunteer employee-led initiatives through FINCAD HOPE (Helping Other People Effectively), which provides opportunities for employees to give back to local and global communities. One of our key initiatives is partnering with the Surrey Christmas Bureau to provide families in need the ability to have a merry Christmas. FINCAD also encourages charity work on the individual employee level by giving each of our employees two paid days each year to volunteer for a charity of their choice. But, essentially, what really enables FINCAD to be a top employer is the high caliber of people who work here and the shared values that drive them. Maybe one of the reasons FINCAD is such a great place to work is because we do pay attention to helping people and giving back, and these are really our shared values, brought to life by everyone who works here.
We are committed to attracting and retaining smart people who care about their work and are driven to both personally deliver and help each other deliver results. Our CEO and founder, Bob Park takes the time to personally meet with each employee before they are hired to ensure they are a good fit.
Our employees are enthusiastic, challenged and are eager to grow. Our collective desire to learn and the continual learning opportunities available are key FINCAD differentiators that set us apart from other employers.
