Galvanize Named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for Third Consecutive Year

Vancouver, BC, November 22, 2019 Galvanize, the global leader in SaaS governance, risk, and compliance software, has been selected as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the third year in a row. The award is given in recognition of Galvanize’s outstanding workplace practices, including the company’s commitment to employee training and career advancement opportunities, holistic benefits and incentives, social atmosphere, and overall culture.

“To receive this award for the third consecutive year is a testament to the culture we have built, and the people that allow our company to flourish,” said CEO Laurie Schultz. “Employee engagement is the first prerequisite to sustained financial success. We’re proud to be one of Canada’s leaders in providing the very best opportunities and culture for employees.”

The award recognizes Galvanize’s employee-first culture, which places an emphasis on open communication, innovation, and career growth. Galvanize ensures that employee growth is priority through initiatives like in-house training programs for emerging leaders, management effectiveness, internal Change Agents, and new hires, as well as a budget for external training.

Employee well-being is reflected in Galvanize’s programs, including financial planning and mindfulness sessions, and salary top-up for new parents on maternity and parental leave. Personal wellness spending accounts give Galvanites the chance to customize their wellness program with things like yoga classes, fitness equipment, music lessons, and ski lift tickets. Open and transparent communication is exemplified through company programs, with frequent town halls, global all-hands meetings, and easily accessible 1:1 time with the CEO.

“To be named one of Canada’s Top Employers for the third year in a row is an incredible accomplishment for the team,” said Kathy Enros, Vice President of Talent at Galvanize. “We pride ourselves on building an environment in which employees can thrive. By providing supportive tools and a purpose-driven culture, we give employees the building blocks they need to do incredible work that changes the world.”

This award is one of many accolades for corporate culture that mark Galvanize’s commitment to their employees. In the past few years, Galvanize has been recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers, Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures, and one of Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies. CEO Laurie Schultz is consistently highlighted as one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women.
