As we work toward becoming the largest IT employer in Canada, we welcome professionals passionate about life-long learning and improving the lives of individuals across the country—and around the world.

Our commitment to associate wellbeing

Designed with flexibility in mind to meet the diverse needs of each associate, our global Be Well program provides the physical, mental and financial support needed to navigate life and work.

We believe holistic wellbeing and a supportive culture are foundational to success, so we encourage our associates and people managers to remain self-aware, make wellbeing a priority and actively engage with the resources and support available to them. Here are a few highlights of our program:

Life and work

We empower our associates to make time for themselves and the things that matter outside of work–through paid time off, leave, flexible work and more.

Culture and values

We look to build an environment where people are as driven and entrepreneurial as they are caring and supportive to each other. Because our company is only as strong as our people—and their success is ours, too.
