WATERLOO, ONTARIO – December 3, 2020 – eSentire, Inc., category creator and the leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) company, today announced it has been named to the 2021 Waterloo Area’s Top Employers list for the fourth consecutive year. Now in its 14th year, the annual competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers in the Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph area that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
eSentire was selected as one of the Waterloo Area’s Top Employers because of its employee-focused programs. As example, eSentire encourages ongoing employee training with tuition subsidies for courses at outside institutions, in-house and online training programs, as well as supporting young people entering the workforce through apprenticeship and paid internship programs. Employees may also have the opportunity to take advantage of flexible hours and telecommuting work options to help balance their work and personal lives. Along with a year-end bonus program, eSentire encourages all employees to become recruiters for the firm with generous new employee referral bonuses, up to $5,000.
“We are honoured to be once again recognized as one of the Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for the fourth consecutive year, especially within a year like no other. Our continued focus on our employees has been instrumental in our success and throughout this challenging year the strength and resilience of our team has only been further solidified,” said Kathryn Hodge, VP of People, eSentire.
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.
