It is often said that the success of an organization depends on its team and its collaborators. For Libéo, collaboration between competent and passionate colleagues is a key motivation factor: challenging the status quo and progressing together, as a team, fosters a strong commitment to the company.
So, why get certified as a Great Place to Work if we already have the assurance of thriving in an organization that does everything to help their employees grow? Why shout from the rooftops that we are a good employer? That’s suspicious, isn’t it? Could it be because we are not a genuinely good employer, after all? Could it be “HR washing” to absolve ourselves of something?
For us, the Great Place to Work certification – and any other certification, of course – should not be considered as an end in itself, but rather as a continuous process of improving corporate culture and employee satisfaction.
Investing in a certification demonstrates our commitment to creating a positive and fulfilling work environment for all members of our team. A certification is thus a recognition of our commitment to our employees and our desire to continue improving our work environment.
More and more, certifications are also important for reassuring employees who are looking for an employer that places great importance on corporate culture and working conditions. This is not surprising considering that 75% of Generation Y and Z workers consider corporate culture a priority in their job search.
We are well aware that there are employers who, despite being certified, do not make culture and the quality of the work environment a priority. And we are well aware that Libéo still has improvements to make.
But you know what? We will continue to seek other certifications because Libéo aims to become one of the best employers in Canada. We will continue to strive for excellence in human resource management, and certifications will give us an excuse to do so!
