Coveted award recognizes company’s focus on career mobility and growth
TORONTO, June 5, 2020 – Distributel Communications Limited has been named one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers for 2020. The award recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking HR policies.
Canada’s SME sector is important to the economy, responsible for over 95% of the new jobs created in the past decade. “We’re humbled to be recognized with this award. We realize the role we play in keeping Canadians connected at a time like this, and the responsibility we have to keeping our employees safe,” said Matt Stein, CEO of Distributel. “I’m tremendously proud of our team, as we continue to support our customers and the Canadian economy.”
The award is limited to private-sector commercial organizations with under 500 employees. Today, Distributel employs highly skilled professionals such as software engineers, systems architects and network architects as well as human resources, legal, marketing, communications and financial professionals who fill corporate functions. In addition, Distributel boasts a diverse and inclusive workforce, and that includes age as well ethnic diversity. Their five offices are located in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton and Vancouver.

If it’s a good one, we’re going to find a way to make it happen.”
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.
