There are plenty of opportunities for job seekers in the Canadian gaming market but a new certification from Blazesoft sets them apart from the pack.

The Ontario-based social gaming company recently earned Great Place to Work certification from Great Places to Work. Other gaming companies on the list for Ontario include theScore and Zynga.

“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,” said Blazesoft SVP of Strategic Initiatives Yuliy German.

Scoring for the certification process includes primarily responses from anonymous employee surveys. The organization also does an in-depth study on company culture.

“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,” explained SVP of Great Place to Work Canada Nancy Fonseca.

Blazesoft has been focusing on improving company culture as of late with annual staff trips to the Caribbean, weekly community-building lunches, and substantial employee medical benefits.

“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,” said Blazesoft CEO Mickey Blayvas.
