Company’s central mission shines through during Covid-19 pandemic
TORONTO, December 4, 2020 – Distributel Communications Limited is proud to be recognized as a Greater Toronto Top 2021 Employer. To be selected for this award, employers must demonstrate a commitment to best practices and progressive human resources policies that reflect the diverse workforce in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada.
Distributel was also the first Canadian telecommunications company to obtain the coveted Great Place to Work® certification earlier this year.
“We’re thrilled with the recognition our workplace has been receiving,” said Matt Stein, CEO of Distributel. “Despite its challenges, 2020 has been a momentous year for Distributel with respect to establishing ourselves as an employer of choice across Canada. It’s been amazing to see our whole team come together for each other and for our customers when they needed us the most,” added Stein.
Isabelle Leger, Director of Human Resources, remarked how swiftly Distributel supported its employees in adapting during the Covid-19 pandemic earlier this year. “Our IT team was able to transition everyone to a work from home environment within a week, which was critical for the well-being of our teams. It was also a priority for us to promote work-life balance and to increase the frequency of virtual team events to preserve the precious feeling of being connected to each other,” said Leger.
With five offices located across Canada in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton and Vancouver, Distributel offers a range of employment opportunities across a variety of roles including customer experience, technical support, sales and finance.
To be considered for this award, employers are evaluated on their operations and human resources practices against eight criteria: physical workplace; social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
“Being recognized as a Greater Toronto Top Employer further illustrates the resiliency, dedication and support shown by the Distributel team throughout 2020,” said Stein.
