NDI Recognized as One of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2019

Waterloo, Ontario – December 3, 2018 – NDI (Northern Digital Inc.), a global-leading innovator and manufacturer of 3D measurement and motion tracking solutions, has been named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2019 by Mediacorp in its annual competition and compilation.

The Waterloo Area’s Top Employers competition recognizes local industry leaders for their ability to attract and retain top talent, and for providing employees with an exemplary place to work.

Employers are judged on eight criteria that determine which companies offer the most progressive and innovative workplace programs: physical workplace, work/social atmosphere, health, financial and family benefits, vacation/time off, employee communications, performance management, training/skills development, and community involvement.

NDI was recognized on the strength of its work/social atmosphere, financial benefits, and generous vacation allotment:

  • The NDI employee social committee organizes numerous events for employees, including a holiday party at Christmas, a family skating event in the winter, ice cream and food truck visits in the summer, axe-throwing and rock climbing excursions;
  • NDI offers employees year-end performance bonuses, a share purchase plan, and generous new employee referral bonuses — and encourages employees to plan for the longer term with retirement planning assistance services and matching RSP contributions; and
  • NDI starts new employees with three weeks of paid vacation and considers previous work experience when setting individual vacation entitlements.

Of the hundreds of companies that participated in the competition, only 25 received the designation of being Waterloo Area’s Top Employers 2019.

“We’re honoured to be named one of the top employers in the Waterloo Area,” says David Rath, President of NDI. “As rewarding as it is to know that our social and financial programs rank among the best in this area, our employees are the real reason for this award. Every one of our employees contributes to NDI being an employer of choice – through their creativity, energy, and passion for excellence. We will continue to support our staff by reinforcing the programs that we offer now and look to develop in the future.”
