Convergint Canada won Alberta’s Top 75 Employers 2020 Award as announced by Mediacorp Canada Inc. and featured by Calgary Herald. With this prestigious award, Convergint was acknowledged for its efforts in creating a welcoming workplace environment, supporting balanced lives, and making it easy for its colleagues to give back to their communities. The award was officially presented to Convergint’s team at the 15th Alberta’s Top 75 Employers Reception.
Conducted by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers Project, Alberta’s Top 75 Employers competition has been taking place each year since 2006. The contest goal is to recognize Alberta’s companies whose efforts in creating an exceptional workplace environment stand out among their industry peers.
Convergint’s Team Receiving Alberta’s Top Employers Awards
Employers were judged by several criteria, which have included physical workplace; work atmosphere; health, financial & family benefits; community involvement; and more.
The work atmosphere was one of the priority points considered by judges. Deeply embedded in the company culture, creating a positive environment is not just lip-service at Convergint, but one of its Values & Beliefs supported at all company levels.

Community involvement was another criterion used by judges to evaluate the contestants. Convergint is committed to social responsibility and supports the efforts of its colleagues to give back to their communities. Every year for Convergint’s Social Responsibility Day, the company offices shut down for an entire day to enable its colleagues to volunteer for local nonprofit organizations of their choice.
Convergint colleagues truly stepped up within their community at the time of massive fires in Northern Alberta. In 2016, when the Fort McMurray area was suffering from wildfires, and 88,000 residents had to leave their homes, Convergint colleagues helped the fire victims to evacuate from the danger areas.
