Replicon Awarded Canada’s Top 100 Employers Award for Workplace Diversity
Calgary, AB – March 4, 2008 – Replicon, the world leader in time and expense tracking software, was noted by Canada’s Top 100 as one of the best workplaces for new Canadians, as published in Mediacorp Canada Inc.’s annual ranking.
“When CEO Raj Narayanaswamy started Replicon in 1996, he didn’t set out to create a highly diverse workforce, but that’s exactly what he ended up with several years later,” says Derek Sankey of the Calgary Herald.
The reality is that Canada’s population growth will come primarily from immigrants over the next decade, so smart employers already facing critical labour shortages are embracing diversity as a competitive recruitment advantage.
“It wasn’t a deliberate strategy, but there is a deliberate strategy to hire the best,” says Narayanaswamy, president of the company where 18 languages are spoken in the firm’s 90-employee Calgary office. “Because we’re selling globally, we need to have knowledge of global thinking and a diverse workforce brings that automatically.”
This is already Replicon’s third award for 2008, reflecting on the company’s outstanding workplace, products and employees.
