Montreal-based Genetec announced that it has been named as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People by MediaCorp Canada.

Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. Companies are evaluated on their ability to attract and retain young workers, mentorship and training programs, growth and development opportunities, and the percentage of young people in the organization.

According to Genetec, the company was recognized as a Top Employer based on employee-focused initiatives including “a work environment that promotes creativity, innovation and teamwork.” Training and continuing education opportunities include an apprenticeship program to help candidates without the right qualifications to gain the necessary experience and skillset on the job. There are additional company perks such as flexible hours, health and wellness programs, subsidized meals, an on-site kinesiologist, and a fitness centre.

Every year, Genetec offers over 400 software engineering, sales, and marketing intern positions with many leading to full-time employment.


“We are very proud to be recognized as a top employer for young people in Canada,” said Richard Pailliere, vice-president human resources, Genetec, in a statement. “With a third of our workforce under 30 years old, this nomination reflects our commitment to fostering a dynamic and inclusive workplace that empowers the next generation of talent. We are thankful for the diverse perspectives, energy, and innovation our talented young employees bring to our organization.”
