Sandvine Celebrates 10 Years As One Of The Best Workplaces In Canada

Waterloo, ON; April 27, 2017 – Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that for the 10th year, Sandvine has been named as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada.

The recognition is presented by Great Place to Work to companies that score highest on employee feedback gathered through its Trust Index© Survey, which is based on five principles that define the overall concept of what an employee views as a great workplace. Those principles are: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and comraderie.

“Sandvine is a Team of really smart people doing really hard, important work: we’re building a smarter Internet. We have over 300 network operator customers, many with globally-recognized brands, who serve billions of subscribers across more than 100 countries,” said Dave Caputo, President and CEO, Sandvine. “But we’re also much more than that. We’re a Team inside and outside the office – whether at our Annual Fitness Challenge, LAN parties, chili and soup cook-offs, on our treadmill desks, or helping out our Team’s favourite charities – it’s all part of the Sandvine Way.”

Here’s what Sandvine Team Members said when they’re asked why Sandvine is a Great Place to Work.

In March of this year, Sandvine was also recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for Women. To be eligible for that recognition, organizations had to be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, have a minimum of 50 female employees, and provide a male/female breakdown by job level. Sandvine’s female Team Members also had to have a minimum 90% positive response to the statement "I am treated fairly regardless of my gender," as well as demonstrate high levels of workplace trust and involvement in people programs that support women.
