Blazesoft, an online gaming company serving the Canadian market, has been named as one of the best employers in Canada after an evaluation from the Great Place to Work Institute.
The parent company of brands such as Fortune Coins, Zula Casino and Sportzino, has achieved the Great Place to Work certification after the evaluation deemed that it has an “outstanding workplace culture”.
Yuliy German, SVP of Strategic Initiatives at Blazesoft, explained: “I have had the privilege of being a part of this incredible company for some time now, and I am continually amazed by the exceptional culture, dedicated team, and the outstanding benefits it offers.
“One of the standout features of this company is the remarkable employees; colleagues quickly become friends, mentors, and collaborators. The strong sense of unity and collective achievement is evident in every project we undertake.”
The certification was handed out based on two key components: two-thirds of the total score derives from anonymous employee surveys and the remaining third from an in-depth study of the company culture.
Auditors found that Blazesoft offers a collaborative, inclusive and innovative culture where there is a positive atmosphere between colleagues.
Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work Canada, noted: “Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What’s more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency.”
Blazesoft states that it has always strived to implement several core tenets in its offices to achieve success. This is underpinned by its emphasis on respect, inclusivity and employee benefits such as advanced medical care.
The firm also offers staff extra activities such as holiday parties, annual company trips to the Caribbean and “Happy Friday” lunches.
Mickey Blayvas, Blazesoft CEO, added: “We are honored to receive the Great Place to Work certification, validating our ongoing efforts to create a workplace where every team member feels valued and recognized. I am proud to be a part of a rapidly growing Canadian business, where we celebrate so many diverse cultural traditions.
“Our culture influences the way we work, rather than us trying to influence it; we’re creating a true community. With the certification, I am certain we will continue to attract top candidates.”
