MONTREAL – June 2, 2022 – Syntax, a leading multi-cloud and mission-critical applications managed cloud provider, today announced its Global Flex Program. This new policy gives Syntax employees the flexibility to create personalized working conditions that enable them to perform their best work. The goal of the Global Flex Program is to encourage Syntax employees to prioritize themselves by giving them the freedom to build their careers around their lives.
“Our primary focus at Syntax has always been providing world-class service and industry leading solutions to our customers, but this wouldn’t be possible without our employees,” said Christian Primeau, Global CEO at Syntax. “Our leadership team is dedicated to creating a culture in which our employees are empowered to organize their jobs around their lives, rather than the other way around. We’re proud to launch this program globally to support our entire team while further elevating our service to our customer base.”
Syntax has seen significant growth as a company in the past year and its employee base has expanded to over 1,750 global employees. This trend is expected to continue throughout 2022 and beyond, driving the need to attract and retain talent around the world to support this growth.
“Our employees are our biggest asset here at Syntax, and we wouldn’t be able to deliver the top-tier solutions and services that we offer our customers without their skills and dedication,” said Dessalen Wood, Chief People Officer at Syntax. “Syntax understands the future of work is changing, and that the Global Flex Program is the first of several initiatives planned to support our employees as they navigate the new world of work. We are committed to continue raising the bar when it comes to how we are supporting our people in terms of work environments, and our focus on flexibility, inclusion, and employee well-being is helping create a workforce of happier, empowered employees.”
The Syntax Global Flex Program includes:
- Global Tourist: Employees have the option to work remotely, from anywhere, for up to 30 or 60 days with few tax and visa implications. Employees can also work up to four months in locations where Syntax has a physical presence. With offices located across the globe, employees have the benefit to work and live abroad as part of their experience at Syntax.
- Flex Workplace: All eligible employees may elect to work at an office, remotely, or hybrid. Eligible employees are workers in which the nature of their work does not require them to conduct their responsibilities from a designated Syntax office or assigned location. During the pandemic, Syntax saw that over 90% of roles were able to be performed remotely, and Flex Workplace celebrates this choice.
- Flex Schedule: Team members can set their own hours, so long as they are completing their work, accessible when needed, available for our customers and attending meetings. With this move, Syntax leaders will assess performance based on job
expectations and on result delivery, rather than number of hours worked.
The Global Flex Program launched globally in April in 9 out of 11 countries Syntax operates in, with the remaining countries joining the program later this quarter based on country-specific requirements.
