Last week, Absolute was recognized in a distinguished list of top employers for British Columbia. The BC’s Top Employers 2018 list showcases those organizations who have gone above and beyond to create a workplace that values employees and their personal and professional aspirations. We are honored to be a part of such an innovative group of Canadian companies and it is confirmation our company culture initiatives are on target.
As cybersecurity threats continue to plague organizations worldwide, Absolute and its global team work alongside partners and customers to strengthen their defenses and protect their most sensitive data. This helps brands protect their reputation, healthcare organizations deliver personalized healthcare and school districts increase student grades. To achieve these big goals, we structured our company core values around three pillars: passion, innovation and trust. From these values, we developed a number of initiatives that encourage a dynamic, engaging culture.
For example, one annual event now highly anticipated by many of our employees is the Absolute Hackathon. Team members from all departments participate and generate innovative ideas that impact not only their immediate group but the company as a whole, and in many cases, our customers. The ideas get bigger every year and the execution is incredibly creative.
Absolute is also focused on employees both from a training perspective and recognition. We invest in continuing education and encourage all of our employees to participate in training opportunities that apply to their individual skills and / or interests. And when a job well done arises, we have a global awards program that recognizes people for achieving greatness across our three pillars of passion, innovation and trust.
From fun holiday parties and collectively supporting community causes to collaborative work spaces and amazing tech, Absolute employees have a wide variety of opportunities to connect and grow. We strive to facilitate an inspiring workplace where the people are the reason you come to work every day.
To further highlight our employee activities and achievements with our global offices and our community, we recently launched a new blog that provides an inside look at life at Absolute. We’re passionate about the stories that occur here and we’re anxious to share them with you. We also post position openings here so be sure to check it out!
In response to our recent recognition, we asked a few Absolute employees what they think about working here. Watch our new video for some unrehearsed, unfiltered input:
