Ottawa, Ontario, October 02, 2012 - Macadamian, a leading global user experience design and software development firm, has been honoured as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for Young People for 2012 by Mediacorp. This special designation recognizes employers that offer the nation's best benefits for younger workers.
Macadamian has a long-standing reputation as one of the best places to work for in the National Capital Region. The company was lauded for such creative employee development programs as regular lunch and learns training sessions, subsidies for tuition and professional accreditation, and an innovative 'CreativiDay' program. ‘CreativiDay’ enables employees to allocate a percentage of their working time to expand their talents by engaging in personal interest projects such as blogging and application development. In Macadamian’s high achieving software development environment, young employees also appreciate the flexibility to manage their personal lives through “Macadamian Days” (a company sponsored day off every month), flexible work schedules and telecommuting.
“As a company committed to attracting and developing talent, we are delighted to have been recognized among the country’s top employers for young people. The fact that our own employees contributed to this outcome by completing the survey says a lot about our team.” said Frederic Boulanger, Macadamian’s CEO. “Macadamian is a great place to work and the quality of our employees shines through in the outstanding work we do for our customers.”
