prairieFyre Software genoemd als een van de 50 beste werkgevers in het MKB in Canada

prairieFyre Software, een vooraanstaande provider van oplossingen voor contactcenters en unified communications, heeft vandaag bekendgemaakt dat het is genoemd als een van de 50 beste werkgevers in het MKB in Canada. Het bedrijf behaalde de 31st plaats in een jaarlijks onderzoek, georganiseerd door Queen's School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing, en AON Hewitt, gepubliceerd in PROFIT Magazine.

"We voelen ons zeer vereerd met deze erkenning," aldus Chris Courneya, CEO van prairieFyre Software. "Het is een erkenning van wat wij al jaren weten: dat prairieFyre is een bedrijf is dat bestaat uit getalenteerde, energieke en innovatieve mensen, en dat de cultuur, kernwaarden en sociale aspecten van ons bedrijf hun weerga niet kennen."

prairieFyre Software gelooft dat het succes van het bedrijf is gebaseerd op de prestaties van haar werknemers. Ondanks aanzienlijke uitdagingen door de wereldwijde economische omstandigheden is het bedrijf de afgelopen vijf jaar meer dan tweemaal zo groot geworden, van 60 naar 130 werknemers, en heeft het bedrijf een evenredige groei doorgemaakt in omzet en winstgevendheid. Met producten in meer dan 70 landen van over de hele wereld heeft prairieFyre internationaal erkende prijzen in de wacht gesleept, zoals TMC Product of the Year (2012), en is het bedrijf genomineerd voor Microsoft Impact Awards.

"De tevredenheid van onze werknemers is een topprioriteit voor prairieFyre,” aldus Sheri-Lynne Leskiw, directeur Corporate Services & Organizational Effectiveness bij prairieFyre. “Met een sterke focus op de werving, de ontwikkeling en het behoud van toptalent, hebben we in 2010 onze ‘Great Place to Work’ strategie in gang gezet. Deze erkenning vormt een bekroning van onze inspanningen voor het verwezenlijken van een strategische doelstelling, en het opbouwen van een hoogpresterend team dat uitstekende resultaten levert.”

Een van de beste werkgevers in het MKB worden is een proces waarbij het draait om details. Dit nationale Awards-programma, inmiddels in haar achtste jaar, zet de beste werkgevers in de categorie tussen 50 en 399 werknemers in het voetlicht. Dit jaar namen meer dan 200 organisaties uit heel Canada deel van het onderzoek.

De ranglijst wordt hoofdzakelijk bepaald aan de hand van resultaten van werknemersenquêtes. Daarnaast speelt de beoordeling van organisatorische praktijken en de perspectieven van de leidinggevenden een rol binnen het evaluatieproces.
