Graycon Named One of Canada's Best Employers for Recent Grads

Young professionals and recent graduates often share common traits. They are eager to learn, full of fresh ideas, and hungry to inspire change in organizations—just the type of people you want working for your company.

At Graycon, we are who we hire—and we hire energetic, skilled and enthusiastic people. That's why we are proud to be listed as one of Canada's Best Employers for Recent Graduates for 2018.

For 25 years, the Canada's Top 100 Employers project has reviewed thousands of Canadian employers to determine the academic qualifications they are looking for in young professionals. The result? The Career Directory, a resource that connects new graduates with the programs and jobs they need to kickstart their careers.

"As a soon-to-graduate student back in 2012, Graycon had the type of culture that reminded me of working in our school lab," says Eric Sikorski, Graycon's Service Delivery Manager who was onboarded following his education with the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). "We have an environment that breeds collaboration between technicians. It's reminiscent of the teamwork mentality you get in a classroom.

"As a recent grad, Graycon gave me the confidence I needed to kickstart my career. They offered training and mentorship right out of the gate, so I could get my feet wet before I took the deep dive."

To be considered for the directory, organizations must have an established entry-level recruitment program, be physically located within Canada, offer benefits, and provide career advancement opportunities.

Why We Stand Out

When you're welcomed as a new employee at Graycon, you officially become a Grayconian. Aside from a positive and lively culture and work environment, Grayconians also experience great programs and workplace benefits such as:

  • Training and development programs
  • Work-life balance
  • Competitive extended benefits
  • RRSP matching
  • An employee assistance program
  • Fitness benefits
  • The list goes on...
