A Tailored Approach That Addresses Individual Needs
You hear a lot these days about the importance of work/life balance. For us, building a workplace that respects the personal needs of employees is an important objective.
We achieve this by favouring a tailored approach. In other words, we encourage each employee and his or her manager to discuss what it means and what is required to balance work responsibilities with personal obligations. This open and honest communication is designed to address challenges and issues, thus facilitating a satisfactory agreement.
As a further aid, we offer work/life balance workshops as well as other workshops related to priority setting, time management, and stress management. We also have a free Employee Assistance Program.
CIHR values and supports a very active social committee. Our committee organizes regular events which encourage exchanges between employees, allow them to get to know each other better outside of the traditional work environment and strengthen teamwork.
