A Toronto-based customer communications company has been named one of Canada's top small and midsize employers.
Messagepoint Inc., headquartered in the downtown Queen's Quay Terminal building, was recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc., a publisher of employment periodicals, for its flexibility to adapt to changes and its attractiveness to prospective employees.
"We are proud and honoured to receive this distinguished award, and grateful to be recognized with some amazing peer companies,” Steve Biancaniello, CEO of Messagepoint, told Toronto Business Daily.
“We remain deeply committed to fostering a compelling workplace where every day we live out our corporate values, respecting the importance of accountability, agility, empowerment, innovation, integrity, candour and celebration as we serve our great customers and partners.”
Messagepoint, founded in 1998, develops and delivers software and services to aid customer communications, the business of automating and simplifying document-related processes and practices.
Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs, Mediacorp said in a press release announcing the winners.
“The defining features of employers on this year’s list are their flexibility to adapt quickly to changing conditions and the ease with which they can make improvements,” Richard Yerema, managing editor of Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp, said.
“Since the competition was founded, we’ve observed that the leading SMEs have steadily expanded their benefits and HR initiatives—they offer job-seekers an attractive employment proposition combined with a dynamic and fun work environment," he said.
Messagepoint describes itself as having a dedicated team of more than 80 consultants, designers, project managers and software developers operating out of its waterfront building.
Its cloud-based platform helps companies strengthen their customer communications by enabling business users to control the entire messaging lifecycle for all print or digital communications without burdening its information technology, Messagepoint said.
