Premier Tech Wins a Job Creation Award in Quebec

Thursday, October 05, 2017

It is with pleasure that Premier Tech represented the Bas-Saint-Laurent region to the Prix Créateurs d’emplois du Québec 2017 annual gala, where the company received an award in the “Job Creation Champion” category. This award was created to honour companies from all around Quebec who, through their exceptional efforts to create and maintain quality jobs, contribute to their region’s economic growth, for the benefit of the whole province.

More than 220 new jobs were created by Premier Tech in Quebec during the qualification period, compared to 495 worldwide. Far from stopping there, the company today has 150 positions to fill worldwide, out of which 83 are new jobs. Premier Tech has been steadily growing for many years now, and is constantly looking for people with diversified skills and expertise. May they be generalists, experts, manufacturing specialists or business leaders, agile and dynamic people who are ready to take up new challenges in a stimulating and rapidly evolving environment are always welcomed in the Premier Tech Team.

“The rate at which we create new jobs is the direct result of our fast growth” explains Jean Bélanger, president and chief operating officer. “Our goal is not to release impressive statistics, but rather to find the people that will secure our ability to fulfil our commitments to our clients throughout the world. Without the Premier Tech Team, nothing here would be possible. Our team members are the ones who allow us to keep making a difference for our clients every day, while seizing the growth opportunities we identify.”

Premier Tech aims to reach $1 billion in revenue by 2020 and will need to recruit 500 new team members to achieve that goal. To prepare itself to rise up to this staffing challenge, the company recently dedicated a whole team to talent attraction. This initiative aims to place Premier Tech in a constant state of pro-activity, with PT brand ambassadors spreading the word about the company to people from diverse backgrounds.
