Halifax healthcare technology software developer gets high praise for its employee experience

Halifax, NS – June 18, 2015 – Umbian Inc., a provider of innovative web-based healthcare software solutions, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada by Progress Magazine. Companies are recognized for delivering outstanding benefit to the region’s economy and workforce. They are chosen largely on the basis of a comprehensive employee survey with questions about culture, empowerment, teamwork, and overall satisfaction.

Umbian, a Halifax, Nova Scotia-based wholly-owned subsidiary of ResMed Inc., was among 31 of Atlantic Canada’s employers selected for the honour in 2015.

“We’re very proud of the team we’re building,” says Michelle Lemieux, Umbian’s human resources business partner. “We continue to look for highly talented people that want to be valued for the contributions they make and be part of an innovative and teamwork-oriented company.”

Umbian has been growing steadily, successfully hiring top talent from the Halifax Metro area over the past several years. Employees are attracted to Umbian’s small company culture that is backed by ResMed, a global billion dollar healthcare powerhouse, which acquired Umbian in August 2012. Umbian is adding more positions in 2015 to support the expansion of its global software product portfolio. 

“Our team’s talent and drive are key to achieving our company’s goals,” says Rob Levings, Umbian’s vice president of business development. “They work exceptionally well as a group. There’s a terrific synergy between our staff, and that energy and collaboration is vital to our success. Being named a ‘Best Place to Work’ reflects how our people feel about one another and the team environment we have built.”
