Waterloo, Ontario – May 11, 2020 – NDI (Northern Digital Inc.), a global-leading innovator and manufacturer of 3D measurement and tracking technology solutions, has been named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2020 by Mediacorp in its annual competition and compilation.

The Waterloo Area’s Top Employers competition recognizes leading local employers for their ability to attract and retain top talent, and for providing employees with a standout place to work.

Employers are evaluated and compared to other companies in their field against the following criteria: (1) physical workplace, (2) work/social atmosphere, (3) health, financial and family benefits, (4) vacation/time off, (5) employee communications, (6) performance management, (7) training/skills development, and (8) community involvement. Companies that are designated as a Top Employer demonstrate the most progressive and forward-thinking workplace programs in the Waterloo area.

NDI was recognized on the strength of its work/social atmosphere, health, financial and family benefits, and commitment to training/skills development:

  • The NDI social committee organizes numerous employee events, such as an annual holiday party, family skating event, ice cream and food truck visits, axe-throwing and rock-climbing excursions, and more;
  • NDI offers a generous compensation package, with a comprehensive health plan (covering up to 100% of premiums), 3-weeks paid vacation after the first year of employment, paid holiday shutdown, stock purchase plan, RSP matching, and referral bonuses (up to $2,500); and
  • NDI encourages lifelong learning and professional development by supporting the attainment of professional accreditation and providing tuition subsidies (up to $1,000).

Of the hundreds of companies that participated in this year’s competition, only 25 were selected as Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2020. This is NDI’s second straight year achieving this designation.

“We’re honoured to be named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2020,” says David Rath, President of NDI.  “In our 39-years as a company, our employees have always come first. Throughout those years, we’ve experienced incredible changes to our technology, our industry, and the Waterloo community.
