MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2016) - Fresche Legacy, a leading provider of IBM i application management and modernization solutions, was recognized today as one of Canada's Top Small and Medium Employers. This is the second year in a row that Fresche has been chosen as one of the most employee-friendly and forward-thinking companies in the country. Fresche qualified as a top employer by providing a wide variety of benefits, flexible working conditions and opportunities for growth to its employees. The Top Employers program highlighted the following:

  • Fresche encourages employees to expand their minds with generous tuition subsidies for courses at outside institutions and by providing an online education system that offers a wide variety of courses free of charge to employees.
  • Employees enjoy the benefits of company share purchase plans and matched RRSP contributions.
  • Fresche helps employees balance their personal and work lives with flexible work hours, telecommuting work options and family-friendly policies.
  • An Innovation Time Off (ITO) program sponsored by Fresche executives and managed by employees provides the opportunity for employees to dedicate up to 10% of their time each week to an idea/project that they feel passionate about.
  • A corporate culture where employee contribution is an integral part of company success.

At Fresche, we strive to provide programs that put our people first, further develop their strengths and help them reach their full potential.

Maria Anzini, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Fresche, commented that it was an honor to be chosen again by the program. "Another year alongside some of the greatest companies in Canada is just amazing. As market needs evolve, we're able to grow and give our employees opportunities to develop their skills and take on new challenges. Our passion for making our Customers smile grows out of how we run the business, how we all work together as colleagues and our combined sense of pride. When you appreciate your employees and give them room to grow, they like where they work, and they transmit their enthusiasm to Customers. Fresche continues to be a place where people are happy to arrive in the morning.

We promote idea sharing and collaboration, and we hold regular weekly all-employee meetings where everyone has a chance to contribute. We're always looking for ways to innovate; we know that growth is the key to employee satisfaction and we want to encourage it any way we can. This year we added many new customers, employees and even investors, so things are always changing and new opportunities arise almost daily. Fresche is an exciting place to be."

No matter where you are in your career, if you are still enthusiastic and still have something to prove, Fresche is a place where you can make a difference - no matter where you live. We have been chosen one of Canada's Top Small and Medium Employers, but our benefits and philosophy extend worldwide to all of our Fresche Legacy offices. Our diversified cultures around the world are a vital part of our success.
