What’s really different about Synergi?

We like to take care of our employees and we aim to make their jobs as satisfying and rewarding as possible. We’re not alone in offering employee benefits such as an annual BBQ, happy hours and occasional special lunches. But, as with everything we do, we like to reach beyond the status quo and to us that means providing our employees with free lunch delivered to the office, every day, and a whole lot more – like continuing education allowances, excellent healthcare benefits, and even vitamins.

Of course, there is something in it for the company! For us it’s about building an exciting, energized and healthy workplace where great people feel empowered to do their best on a daily basis. Treating our staff with respect and recognizing their achievements also results in incredibly low staff turnover, which means we retain the very best talent who are dedicated to delivering outstanding customer satisfaction. By building and keeping a winning team, Synergi can consistently execute on three key deliverables: value to the end-user, an energetic work environment and unrelenting passion for innovation.
