MONTREAL, Canada—January 30, 2020—Broadsign today was named one of Montreal’s Top Employers (2020) in the annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This is the first time Broadsign has been listed. With rapid growth over the last five years, Broadsign is now the global market-leading out-of-home marketing platform. In 2019, Broadsign doubled in size when it acquired Ayuda and Campsite, two Montreal-based companies with complementary products and services.
“I like to say that we empower success,” said Broadsign CEO Burr Smith. “Having low turnover was a good indication that we are doing something right, and being recognized as offering a progressive and forward-thinking work environment for our employees, as compared to other companies in Montreal, is exciting.”
Broadsign offers several unique employee support and engagement programs, including a generous vacation offer, an open working space, a healthy lifestyle program, and a culture where anyone can bring forward suggestions to make the products and organization better. Some of the benefits Broadsign employees enjoy include:
- Encourages employees to support community and charitable initiatives with up to two paid volunteer days annually and matching charitable donations of up to $500.
- Promotes health & fitness with fitness subsidies, a scheduled health week with daily speakers, a well-stocked kitchen with healthy snacks, and weekly yoga or fitness classes.
- A social committee manages a busy social calendar for its employees, with past events including a diversity week, movie nights, employee soccer games, wine and cheese tastings, game nights, a charity hockey game, catered office lunches, team go karting, a spring sugar-shack outing, summer barbecue, Bixi bike rides across Lachine Canal, and much more.
- Encourages employees to continue their education with lunch & learns, opportunities to attend international conferences and training courses, and possible tuition subsidies.
Broadsign’s Montreal head office of 175 full-time employees received 4,000 resumes in the last year as a sign of their employee-focused reputation.
