Fortinet has a global workforce of more than 2,800 employees.
"Our project has never been about finding over-the-top employee benefits and perks,” said Anthony Meehan, publisher at Mediacorp Canada, Inc. “It has instead always been focused on discovering exciting places to work where employees can make a difference and are enthusiastic to come into work."
The BC's Top Employer award, which is part of the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition, is the largest editorial project of its kind in Canada, with thousands of employers taking part in each year's application process. The distinguishing feature of the project is that its editors publish detailed reasons, providing transparency in the selection of winners and practical guidance for job-seekers about exceptional workplaces. Each employer is graded by Mediacorp editors on eight key areas: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. The same eight criteria have been applied since the competition was launched 15 years ago.
