2. Reimbursement & Bonuses for Achieving New Certifications
As you are likely aware, today’s technology is evolving at a blistering pace. This trend is only expected to intensify over the coming years. To keep their skills current, IT professionals will often pursue additional certifications beyond their original technology schooling.
This serves two primary functions. First, continual training and re-certification help ensure IT professionals don’t lose the skills and knowledge they have already acquired. Second, additional training and new skills make that person more marketable. In short, training helps our employees by keeping their skills sharp and raising their earning potential.
Therefore, we provide financial support and incentives to help our employees attain new certifications. Not only will Sagiss reimburse you for the cost of taking a certification test, we’ll also offer you a cash bonus for completing the course! This includes Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), CompTIA Network +, CISSP and others.
3. A Company That Respects Your Time
All too often we hear horror stories of people who start working in IT, only to find themselves drastically overworked by a management team that doesn’t care and/or doesn’t understand work/life balance. At Sagiss, we take every effort to prevent that from ever happening to our employees.
At Sagiss, we operate by a strict set of core values. Among those values is a principle we refer to as “intensely calm.” This means that we bring our A-game to serve our clients to the highest standards each day, and then we go home and forget about work. We believe that work and personal time should be separate.
What does this mean for our new employees? It means having a workplace that respects your need for peace and focus. It also means being part of a company that won’t bother you with calls on your personal time. Most importantly, it means being able to enjoy showing up to work and not dreading it each day.

Sagiss is run by experienced professionals who have a deep understanding of business and the IT support industry.

5. Collaborative Environment
Anyone who thinks technology problems are always simple and easy to solve has never worked on an IT service desk. It’s fair to say that there are times when our technicians face very challenging problems. IT systems can be extraordinarily complex, and it’s rare that any one person has all the answers when significant issues arise.
That’s why we foster an environment of collaboration and group problem solving at Sagiss. Each Friday we hold an all-hands meeting to discuss nagging issues and potential solutions as a group. This type of open dialogue strengthens the bond among our employees and helps our junior team members continue to build their IT knowledge.
Frankly, the collaborative, empowering and fun company culture at Sagiss is difficult to fully describe without experiencing it. If you have a passion for IT, we hope that you’ll consider joining our team to find out why we believe Sagiss is such a special place to work.
