We are thrilled to announce that eSentire has been named to the 2022 Waterloo Area’s Top Employers list for the fifth consecutive year. Now in its 15th year, the annual competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes employers in the Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph areas that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

We have been selected as one of the Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for our people-first approach in addition to building careers and doing work that matters.

Employers being considered as a Waterloo Area Top Employer are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere and Social; (3) Health, Financial and Family Benefits; (4) Vacation and Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training and Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.  Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which company offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

At eSentire, we are committed to building careers. We invest in our team so they can enhance their skills, master their craft, and develop the dynamic career they deserve. To do so, we have created an environment for our team to push and challenge each other collaboratively. We also have robust training and certification programs across our Security Operations Center (SOC), Technical Services and Engineering teams to support career goals and progression planning.

Notable eSentire employee programs and perks also include:

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made sure to focus on our employees’ health and wellness so all Team eSentire members had access to resources including a Lifestyle Spending Account and wellness learning sessions. We supported our team to safely work from home and our social committee helped to ensure that everyone stayed connected through multiple virtual events and fun company-wide activities.

“Being recognized as one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for the fifth consecutive year holds special significance to us. Our commitment to our team is simple: we will continue to invest in our culture, build meaningful programs that benefit the larger eSentire community, and above all, never take for granted that we are only successful thanks to team eSentire's collective actions and steadfast resilience. We are deeply grateful to our outstanding team, who continue to demonstrate grit and perseverance through tough times while showing so much goodwill toward each other. Our people are the heart of our company and we would not be the company we are today without them.” said Kathryn Hodge, Chief People Officer, eSentire.
