Waterloo Area's Top Employer 2021Waterloo, Ontario – December 4, 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 2021 (Opens in new window) by Mediacorp in its annual competition and compilation. This is NDI’s third straight year achieving this designation.

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 designated as a Top Employer demonstrate the most progressive and forward-thinking workplace programs in the Waterloo area.

NDI was recognized for their commitment to training/skills development and cultivating an ownership culture:

  • Northern Digital encourages lifelong learning with tuition subsidies for courses related and indirectly related to an employees’ current role (to $1,000) and provides subsidies for professional accreditation.
  • Northern Digital cultivates an ownership culture through a share purchase plan, available to all employees and offers generous referral bonuses for employees who successfully refer a candidate (up to $2,500) — and introduced additional spot bonuses during the pandemic.

Of the hundreds of companies that participated in this year’s competition, only 25 were selected as Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2021.

“We’re honoured to be named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2021,” 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. But the company’s commitment to our employees—and their commitment to NDI— have remained constant. Our employees are the core of NDI’s success, and I’m grateful and awed by the creativity, talent, and passion for excellence they bring to work, every day.”
