VANCOUVER, BC – February 21, 2019 – ACL, one of Canada’s most prominent tech companies, has been selected as one of BC’s Top Employers for 2019, marking the sixth consecutive year that the GRC software developer has been awarded the title. The annual competition, managed by Mediacorp Canada Inc., recognizes British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
“To be awarded this title for the sixth year in a row is a true honour, and a testament to the valued culture that our company is built around,” said CEO Laurie Schultz. “As we accelerate our growth through the recent acquisition of Rsam, we’re excited to be expanding our global footprint and offer exciting new opportunities to our employees.”
ACL is a Vancouver headquartered, global leader in governance, risk management, and compliance software, with 7,000 customers in 135 countries. The recent acquisition of Rsam combines the strengths of ACL in delivering audit, compliance, and fraud related solutions, with those of Rsam in delivering vendor risk, IT risk, security operations and cyber security solutions to become an industry-leading platform for integrated risk management.
ACL’s employee-first culture is dedicated to providing opportunities for mentorship, skill growth and career development through in-house training programs like Emerging Leaders, Manager Effectiveness, Change Agents and New Hire Enablement, as well as a budget for external skill development. Initiatives like ACL’s diversity and inclusion program, as well as paid volunteer days, encourage a sense of community building within the organization.
ACL encourages an open and transparent work environment through frequent town halls, campus meetings and easily accessible 1:1 time with the CEO, as well as through the space itself, which was designed by employees. Open-concept desks for all levels of staff, 125 individual meeting areas, as well as a sprawling kitchen and lounge/games area encourage collaboration, creativity and social wellbeing.
“In today’s workforce, job-seekers list meaningful work, a strong culture and ethical company mission as top priorities when considering a new position,” said Kathy Enros, Vice President of Talent at ACL. “The work that our employees are doing is changing the world. It is our goal to create a supportive work environment through comprehensive benefits, flexible policies and skill development opportunities, all in a beautiful workspace.”
ACL joins other forward-thinking Top Employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional work places. Employers are judged on the criteria of physical workplace; work atmosphere & social; health, financial & family benefits; vacation & time off; employee communications; performance management; training & skills development; and community involvement.
