Global Relay Named One of the 50 Best Small & Medium Employers

Cloud-based provider of archiving and messaging recognized for its admirable corporate culture and employee engagement


Vancouver, BC – November 6, 2014 — Global Relay, the world leader in message archiving and compliance services for the financial sector, has been named one of the 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada by global consulting firm Aon Hewitt.

The accolade is the result of a rigorous research project gathering the input of close to 190,000 employees and hundreds of organizations from a wide range of industries. The methodology of the study has been honed across 20 years of research from around the world, and focuses on employee engagement, leadership, and human resources practices. 

“Doing business with the world’s largest financial institutions requires Global Relay employees to consistently operate at a world-class level”, said Global Relay Director of Business Operations Kelvin Ng. “This honor reflects our commitment to providing the best possible environment to attract, support and encourage the people who help us reach our ambitious goals”.

To be named to the top 50, employers must demonstrate effective senior leadership, enable employee productivity, and appreciate the value of their employees. Global Relay strives for excellence in each of these measures. Leadership is strong and consistent, with Global Relay’s four founders still leading the company fifteen years after its origin. Employee productivity is facilitated by a stimulating office environment, with open floor plans and breakout rooms that encourage inter-department collaboration. A comprehensive on-boarding process prepares new hires to make immediate contributions and connects them to Global Relay’s corporate culture and goals. Employee appreciation is engrained in the organization, expressed through fun team-building events, staff parties to celebrate successes, and an office environment that the Vancouver Sun called “the coolest workplace in all Vancouver”.

Global Relay’s strength as an employer is widely renowned, having been commended many times in recent years. Awards and distinctions include being named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People (2014), Canada’s Best Managed Companies (2013), Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures (2013), and the Best Companies to Work For in B.C. (2011 and 2012).
