Montréal, October 25, 2018 – Equisoft announced today that it received the Coup de cœur – Montréal Award at the 2018 Créateurs d’emplois du Québec gala event, held on October 24 at the Centre des congrès de Québec.
The Créateurs d’emplois du Québec awards highlight the contribution of leading job creators in Québec and the province’s 17 administrative regions. Prizes are awarded by a highly qualified, independent jury that assesses candidates based on the number of jobs created and maintained during the year, the approaches that were adopted to achieve those ends and the role of sustainability in job creation initiatives.
“We are very pleased to be recognized for our contribution to job creation and retention in Québec, says Romero. With the addition of several new clients in Canada and abroad, Equisoft has grown considerably in the last few years, this in a sector with a shortage of human resources. In 2017 alone, we added close to 50 specialized jobs to our Québec operations and the size of our organization more than doubled compared to the previous year.”
Steady growth on the eve of a milestone year
“This award is especially significant on the eve of Equisoft’s 25-year anniversary, in 2019, as it speaks to the success of our business approach, adds Romero. In spite of our development, we have maintained a small-and-agile team mentality where trust prevails, where communication flows and where people can prosper and make a difference.”
Equisoft today has close to 250 employees in its Montréal and Québec City offices, out of a total of some 400 professionals spread over four continents. With employee retention at 95%, the company stands out as a great place to work in an industry that is infamous for its high turnover rate.
