New York, NY – March 13, 2013 – NTT DATA, Inc., a leading IT services provider, announced today that its Canadian business unit, NTT DATA Canada, Inc., has been recognized with multiple top employer awards in Canada for 2013. Chosen by Canada’s Top 100 Employers program, an annual competition to recognize Canada's best places to work, the company was recognized in three separate award categories including Atlantic Canada's Top Employers, Nova Scotia’s Top Employers and Best Employers for New Canadians.
“Recognition by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers is an honor, as NTT DATA is committed to maintaining an environment where the most talented people want to come to work, grow their careers and make a difference every day on behalf of our clients,” said Dean Williams, executive vice president of human capital at NTT DATA, Inc.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, ranking them on eight criteria, including physical workplace, work atmosphere & social, health, financial & family benefits, vacation & time off, employee communications, performance management, training & skills development and community involvement. The Best Employers for New Canadians are selected by a separate set of criteria such as offering programs for employees who are recent immigrants to Canada and recognizing foreign educational credentials or experience to ensure they have the best experience possible at their new place of work.
NTT DATA Canada’s selection was based on its progressive and forward-thinking policies for traditional programs like referral bonuses, retirement savings and planning assistance, and encouraging work-life balance with flexible hours and options for telecommuting. In-house and online training programs are also part of the judging criteria, as is mentoring, which helps boost professional development.
