TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Softchoice, a leading North American IT solutions and managed services provider, is pleased to announce it has once again been recognized as a Best Large Workplace in Canada by the Great Place to Work® Institute. This is the 12th consecutive year Softchoice has made the list, making it just one of three organizations of any size to be recognized every year since the inception of the list.
