Calgary, Alberta, Canada March 5, 2021

Avanti Software, a leader in Canadian People Management solutions has made it to the 2021 list of Top 50 Great Places to Work in Canada.

Since 2018, Avanti Software has been consistently designated Great Place to Work Certified and has been listed as a top Alberta employer, as well as a Best Workplace for Millennials and Youth, and Technology. This is the organization’s first time on Top 50 Great Places to Work in Canada list.

Commenting on the announcement Angie Duong, Avanti Software’s Director of People & Culture, said: “As a leader in the Canadian people management marketplace, we’re proud to be designated a Great Place to Work. To us, this isn’t just another list or award, it’s something we work hard to achieve every day with fantastic people programs, a dynamic, diverse culture, and a shared purpose of building better workplaces for Canadian employees. We’re ecstatic to be recognized on this prestigious list.”

Calgary’s Avanti Software provides innovative workforce management products to Payroll and HR professionals across Canada. Led by Co-CEOs David Owen Cord and Amin Lalani, Avanti prides itself on an inclusive, diverse culture with plenty of employee perks like:

  • Unlimited time off  
  • Employee recognition programs  
  • Distributed work model  
  • Flexible health & wellness benefits  
  • RRSP matching  
  • Annual incentive bonus  
  • Custom cookies sent to new employees on their first day

Speaking more on the perks, Duong commented, “It may seem counterintuitive to some, but we believe that putting the responsibility in the hands of our employees creates a powerful work environment. From wellness benefits to holidays, our employees are empowered to build a total compensation package that works for their life.”  

Avantians are often encouraged to use their flexible vacation time and the Co-CEOs post ways to de-stress and prioritize personal well-being on the company communication channel. To keep everyone in the loop, Avanti has weekly programs like “Coffee Buddies” where team members can get to know each other and “Thrive Thursdays” where teams share their work.  

To celebrate making it to the Top 50 list and Employee Appreciation Day on March 5, Avanti is bringing in special guest speaker, Ryan Walter, a seasoned NHL hockey player, gold-medal winning coach, TV and radio hockey personality and co-founder and president of two start-ups.
