The future is bright: Hatch recognized as Top Employer for Young People

January 29, 2020

Hatch has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for the fourth consecutive year. Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is an editorial competition organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers. The employers on the list are Canada’s leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.

“Employers are responding to a generation that has come of age with social media,” says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor at Mediacorp. “With social media, everyone has a voice and feels empowered. There’s an expectation by young people that their workplace will be the same, that they can contribute and have an impact.”

At Hatch, we couldn’t agree more. Our employees share a common vision of creating positive change in the world, shared through our Manifesto. One of the important ways that we strive for this common purpose is by encouraging a flat and diverse yet connected organization.

“We believe strongly that to generate the best, most innovative ideas for our clients we need to solve their challenges without constraints. Our colleagues act like owners, encourage global collaboration, and engage great people who make a difference,” said John Bianchini, Hatch’s chairman and CEO. “Our young professionals play a vitally important role in bringing fresh ideas and new perspectives to the world’s toughest challenges.”

Some of the reasons for Hatch’s selection as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People include our Professional Development Program, which aims to help new graduates transition into the workplace. The program strives to expose new grads to the work that Hatch does and the clients that Hatch partners with as well as provide opportunities to meet and network with peers in other groups and with leadership, and lastly, immerses them into the Hatch culture.

Hatch also regularly partners with universities across Canada to collaborate on research and development projects, offer scholarship grants, host information sessions and attend career fairs—we also sponsor the University of Toronto’s Community of Practice for Engineering Leadership, which provides students with access to industry mentors and programs that focus on professional development.
