Employee-friendly working conditions and opportunities for growth help Fresche employees smile while they work.  

Montreal, February 4, 2016 – Fresche Legacy, a leading provider of IBM i application management and modernization solutions, was recognized today as one of Montreal’s Top Employers. This is the second year in a row that Fresche has been chosen as one of the most employee-friendly and forward-thinking companies in the region. Fresche qualified as a top employer by providing a wide variety of benefits, flexible working conditions and opportunities for growth to its employees.

Montreal’s Top Employers program highlighted the following:

  • Fresche encourages employees to expand their minds with generous tuition subsidies for courses at outside institutions.
  • Employees enjoy the benefits of company share purchase plans and matched RRSP contributions.
  • Fresche helps employees balance their personal and work lives with flexible work hours and telecommuting work options.
  • An Innovation Time Off (ITO) program sponsored by Fresche executives and managed by employees provides the opportunity for employees to dedicate up to 10% of their time each week to an idea/project that they feel passionate about.
  • By growing its business rapidly and attracting new investors, Fresche unlocks the full potential of the company, giving employees the opportunity to learn new technologies and assume new roles.


At Fresche, we strive to provide programs that put our people first, further develop their strengths and help them reach their full potential.

Maria Anzini, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Fresche, commented that it was an honor to be chosen again by the program. “Another year alongside some of the greatest companies in Montreal is a thrill. We work hard to ensure that Fresche is a place that continually evolves and meets employee and Customer needs.

Our passion for making our Customers smile grows out of how we run the business, how we all work together as employees and our combined sense of pride. When you appreciate your employees and give them room to grow, they like where they work, and they transmit their enthusiasm to Customers. Fresche continues to be a place where people are happy to arrive in the morning.

We promote idea sharing and collaboration, and we hold regular weekly all-employee meetings where everyone has a chance to contribute. We’re always looking for ways to innovate; we know that growth is the key to employee satisfaction and we want to encourage it any way we can. This year we added many new customers, employees and even investors, so things are always changing and new opportunities arise almost daily. Fresche is an exciting place to be.”

No matter where you are in your career, if you are still enthusiastic and still have something to prove, Fresche is a place where you can make a significant contribution – no matter your location. We have been chosen one of Montreal’s Top Employers, but our benefits and philosophy extend worldwide to all of our Fresche Legacy offices. Our diversified cultures around the world are a vital part of our success.
