Javelin Technologies has been recognized as one of the country’s top small and medium employers (SMEs) in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail.
Now in its sixth year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers recognizes the SMEs that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers are evaluated using criteria such as physical workplace, atmosphere, benefits, employee communications, training, and community involvement.
“Every day, our people provide next-level service and support for Canada’s most creative product designers and manufacturers,” said Ted Lee, one of Javelin’s managing directors. “From coast to coast, every member of our team of 115 continually meets that challenge head on and they deserve to work in the best possible environment we can provide.”
In 2018, Javelin merged with Cimetrix Solutions, forming a never-before-seen powerhouse of expertise in additive manufacturing in Canada.
“The companies that make this list are fast-growing employers that need to innovate rapidly,” said Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. “Some have doubled in size over the past year, but all of them are looking for new ways to attract the best and brightest employees so they can keep growing.”
Growth has been a recurring theme at Javelin, particularly in recent years. In 2018, for the third year in a row, Javelin Technologies appeared on the Growth 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies, published by Canadian Business. Javelin ranks number 32 on the list of fastest-growing information technology companies.
“Our talent is our business,” Lee said. “We will keep listening to what matters to them. That could mean flexible work hours, skills training, fun activities, welcoming spaces, or support for meaningful causes they care about. We also know that our people appreciate our entrepreneurial spirit. Everyone can share new ideas and contribute to our growth.”
Kelly Clancy looks after order management for Javelin Technologies. She said that through the rapid pace of growth, Javelin maintains its appealing culture.
“Even though we’re growing fast, always adding new products and services, and bringing new customers and employees on board, Javelin works hard to make sure everyone feels part of the team. I think everyone knows their efforts are appreciated and sees how their contributions are important.”
Canada’s SME sector is responsible for more than half of the nation’s gross domestic product, nearly 90 per cent of the private-sector labour force, and over three-quarters of the new jobs created in the past decade.
And, of course, Javelin is hiring.
