Life is far too short to spend five days per week doing a job you don’t even enjoy.

This wisdom hails from Neil Khare, a marketing communications manager for Wenco, a company which utilizes cutting-edge technology to develop solutions for the mining industry. Wenco hired Neil at a Tech Talent Vancouver Job Fair last year, and since then he has come to recognize the importance of a positive company culture.

“At Wenco, we work hard and play harder,” says Khare, who points toward fun perks like table tennis and oversize Jenga, as well as wellness options such as Fresh Fruit Mondays featuring organic product and Wellness Wednesdays featuring yoga sessions.

Wenco leverages the high morale of its workforce to push forward the mining industry through the latest technology: the internet of things, data analytics, and autonomous machines all contribute to the company’s mission of making the mining process as safe, effective, and efficient as possible.

Meanwhile Vancouver, where Wenco is based, offers just as much appeal for hustlers like Khare as the company’s enthusiastic culture and grand mission.

“The city has blossomed into a tech giant on the rise,” he says. “More and more local and international companies are choosing the picturesque Pacific Northwest as a place for expansion.”

Strengthening ties to Vancouver, Wenco actively builds community bonds through sponsorships, food drives, charity fundraisers, and other programs.

As part of the Hitachi family, Wenco gives you unparalleled opportunities to expand your skills, your professional network, and your career.

According to Khare, the company is “exploding with growth,” which means he surely wasn’t the last of their hires. In fact, Wenco returns this week for another Tech Talent job fair.

“I had an amazing experience at Tech Talent Vancouver—the food, the people and the ambience,” affirms Khare of the popular quarterly event.

As a marketing and communications professional, he was hesitant because of a belief that Tech Talent Canada job fairs are for tech careers only. He soon learned, however, that was quite a misperception. Wenco continues to hire for a wide variety of roles, including financial analysts, technical writers, and of course software engineers.

“I am beyond thrilled to embark on this new journey,” says Khare of his role at Wenco.
