TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Softchoice Corporation (TSX: SO), a leading North American Solutions and Services provider, is honored to be named a Best Large Workplace in Canada by the Great Place to Work® Institute. This marks the eighth straight year the company has received this prestigious award. Organizations that make the list are recognized for creating and maintaining superior work environments built on trust and are chosen based primarily on employee feedback.
"We are committed to unleashing the potential of our people because it is our people who delight our customers and make Softchoice a truly great company," said David MacDonald, President and CEO of Softchoice. "We think it is vital employees feel a sense of belonging and fulfillment, which is why we focus on promoting from within, and providing development programs that nurture well-rounded future leaders."
Growing and developing its own talent is a core focus, especially in light of the company's continued growth and expansion. In 2012, Softchoice's efforts in this area resulted in 183 internal promotions, four of which were to vice president level positions in sales, services, finance and IT. These results are a product of the company's growing solutions and services business as well as a holistic approach to employee development.
