MONTREAL, QC – February 6, 2013 – For the consecutive second year, Vigilant Global, a Montreal-based R&D and IT firm specializing in high-performance systems, joined the ranks of employers gracing the Montreal’s Top 20 Employers list. The 100-employee firm also made the list last year, with special recognition for its generous vacation allowance, parental leave allowance, RRSP plan matching and ongoing training and volunteering opportunities.

“We consider our employees the building blocks of our success; each one of them participated in Vigilant’s ascension to the top of our industry and now the top employer lists. They are the most important resource to this company and we work hard to ensure they get all the perks they deserve,” said Vigilant Global co-founder and managing director Arvind Ramanathan.

The Montreal Top 20 Employers are selected from submissions made to the Canada Top 100 Employers list, organized by Mediacorp Canada, and involve the completion of an in-depth questionnaire and the submission of press clippings and other communication material. The editors of Canada’s Top 100 review applicants 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.

Vigilant Global’s approach to these key areas was graded above average, allowing the company to place in the Top 20 along with 19 other local employers.
