General Manager Brittany Deveau on steps taken to offer employees a longterm career path: We hold regular oneon-ones with each employee and ask about short-term and long-term goals. We are also proactive and encourage mentorship when an employee shows promise or interest in another position. We always strive to promote from within.
Deveau on steps taken to promote better work-life balance for employees: At a corporate level we have created a ‘Work From Home’ policy; we have focused on cross-training staff, which allows us to be more flexible with our employees’ schedules and still have coverage.
JP Martel, vice-president, people and culture, on the pandemic’s effect on turnover: COVID-19 affected our turnover in a negative way, very slightly... given the volatility of the labour market ... we are quite pleased with our retention. Our team keeps tracking and discussing turnover to ensure we do all we can to create a productive and fun culture.
