Vancouver BC/Lynnfield, MA - Sophos, a world leader in integrated threat management, announces that Maclean's, Canada's distinguished national newsweekly magazine, selected Sophos for its 2006 edition of "Canada's Top 100 Employers." Sophos has also been chosen as one of British Columbia's Top 20 Employers.
More than 55,000 Canadian employers were reviewed, 7,500 were invited to apply and only 100 were recognized as outstanding employers that lead their industries in attracting and retaining quality employees. Training and development, competitive benefits, an inviting workplace and job opportunities were among the attributes that put Sophos on the 2006 list of Canada's Top 100 Employers.
Sophos was recognized for its excellent benefits package that, among other things, offers enrollment in the company's bonus program, a matching RRSP program, and participation in Sophos's share option plan. Also rated highly was Sophos's training and development program. From a comprehensive orientation program and in-depth product training to external training opportunities and even an in-house Toastmasters class, developing and honing current knowledge and skills is a focus for the organization.
"Being named one of Canada's top places to work by Maclean's is an affirmation of the hard work and dedication of each Sophos employee," said Steve Munford, chief operating officer of Sophos. "Having motivated and productive employees is enormously vital to the longevity and overall success of a company and we've made quite an effort to make Sophos not only a fun and inviting place to work but also a place to learn and grow."
Sophos is centrally located in downtown Vancouver. Within the five-story office, employees can congregate and revitalize in the open-concept lounge equipped with a pool table and kitchen. Sophos also has a rooftop deck with a hot tub. During the summer months, it has become company tradition to hold weekly barbeques and team meetings overlooking the city.
Sophos is headquartered in Boston, US and Oxford, UK. More information is available at www.sophos.com.
