VANCOUVER, BC, February 19, 2020Galvanize, the global leader in SaaS governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) software, has been selected as one of BC’s Top Employers for the seventh year in a row. The award is given in recognition of Galvanize’s commitment to providing an exceptional work environment, including the company’s stunning workspace, employee-first culture, dedication to employee training and career advancement, robust benefits, and transparent communications.

“At Galvanize, our first priority is to ‘Mobilize Talent,’ which means we strive to provide our employees with the opportunities to have a meaningful career and positive impact with their work. It’s the prerequisite to all our success, with our customers, our employees, as well as our financial performance,” said Laurie Schultz, chief executive officer, Galvanize. “We are extremely grateful then, to be recognized now for the seventh consecutive year in a row, as one of BC's top employers.”

Galvanize’s employee-first culture places an emphasis on open communication, innovation, and career growth, with numerous initiatives such as industry-leading in-house training programs for emerging leaders, management effectiveness, internal change agents, and new hires. Employee well-being remains a top priority, through initiatives such as financial planning and mindfulness sessions, salary top up for new parents on maternity and parental leave, and personal wellness spending accounts. This gives Galvanites the chance to customize their wellness program with things like yoga classes, fitness equipment, music lessons, and ski lift tickets.

The physical workspace at Galvanize reflects the transparency and focus on employee well-being. Designed by employees, the space features open-concept desks, 125 individual meeting areas, and four sprawling kitchen and lounge areas.
