Great Place to Work® awards second consecutive certification to IMCD Canada

For the second year in a row, IMCD Canada was recognized as a Great Place to Work® based on the results of an extensive anonymous survey of its employees. 

Great Place to Work
“I am proud of the company culture we have developed at IMCD Canada throughout the years and our collective interest in continually fostering this culture not just today, but many years to come,” said Mike Staley, Managing Director, IMCD Canada.

“We are fostering a culture that attracts committed, engaged employees with a shared interest in the values of honesty, fairness and genuine friendliness. This has been beneficial to our day-to-day as it projects in our relationships in the workplace, but also with our principal partners and customers.” 

Health and Safety – a top priority

IMCD Canada was commended as a physically safe place to work – a company characteristic that received the highest rating in the Great Place to Work survey. “Safety: It’s My Responsibility” is IMCD Canada’s Health and Safety mission statement and a cornerstone for which it conducts business. It is a high priority for IMCD Canada to emphasize the importance of environmental, health and safety awareness among all employees, customers, and also the public. 

“Health and Safety has always been an integral component of our culture,” said Halina Ratulowski, Americas HSEQ & Regulatory Director at IMCD. “All new employees, within the first week of hire, are provided information on the Health and Safety program and assurance that their ‘right to know,’ ‘right to participate’ and the ‘right to refuse unsafe work.’

These are the foundation blocks of the overall program. Over the past year, regular communication on the COVID-19 protocols continues to be a priority so that all employees are made aware of any change that might impact their safety in the workplace.”  

Physical safety in the workplace has been directly affected by the implementation of the hybrid work model. The hybrid model allowed only 50% of the office staff on site and in the building on a given workday. This reduction in capacity created a safe workspace such that employees had room to navigate in hallways, meeting rooms and lunchrooms, without having to contend with a full contingent of employees on site. Moreover, the office workspaces had additional mobile barriers available, if needed. 

For our operational staff team members, we continued to protect the warehouses by restricting office staff from entering the warehouse areas unless authorized to do so. Although, IMCD Canada looks forward to the day when this is no longer a necessity, the protection of the team on the warehouse floor has always been a number one priority in mitigating the risk of infection to our essential team members from any office staff members.
