Montreal, September 25, 2013 - Genetec™, a pioneer in the physical security industry and a leading provider of world-class unified IP security solutions, today announced that it has been selected and recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People by the editors of Mediacorp Canada Inc.

Genetec was evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers based on programs to attract and retain younger workers, including tuition assistance and availability of co-op or work-study programs. Genetec was also judged on its mentorship, training, and bonus incentives for employees who complete certain courses or professional designations. Based on specific skills initiatives, Genetec was recognized for its programs to help younger workers advance faster in the organization. Completing the evaluation, the editors looked at the average age of employees to grade the composition and workforce profile.

"I applied for an internship at Genetec to get real-world product development experience in a fast-growing company, and to finally make use of the theory I was learning at university," said Carl Patenaude Poulin, engineering student at McGill University and Campus Ambassador for Genetec. "Genetec helped me realize how exhilarating it is to understand and solve state-of-the-art technological challenges. Here, I met amazing friends, and achieved a level of personal growth that I could never have reached in an academic setting. I can't think of a better place to do my internship than Genetec, nor can I imagine better mentors and colleagues to work with," said Poulin.

First published in 2002, the Canada's Top Employers for Young People competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation's best benefits for younger workers. The employers on this list are Canada's leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.
