Skilled Immigrants Attract More Talent to Pythian

Pythian, a remote database and consulting services company, has discovered an unexpected benefit of having skilled immigrant employees: They attract other highly skilled immigrants to the company.

For example, the Ottawa-based company’s chief technical officer is a Russian by birth and well respected in his field, especially in his home country, says Paul Vallée, Founder and Executive Chairman of Pythian. As a result, Mr. Vallée says other leading minds from Russia want to work for Pythian, which was also recognized by Hire Immigrants Ottawa with a 2012 Employer Excellence Award.
