Our People, Our Future. How Motion Canada Is Leveraging Real Employee Stories To Propel Us Forward
“Motion Canada is the best kept secret!” That’s what we kept hearing from people. But we don’t want to be a secret. We want everyone to know who we are and what we have to offer – think flexible health and retirement benefits, generous learning and development opportunities, thoughtful people-first programs and the chance to work alongside industry experts who are really cool. Why wouldn’t we want to shout our story from the rooftops?
Especially when there is a war for talent creating a candidate-driven job market. As the CBC reported in late 2018, the current “low unemployment rate means employers must step up their game to keep staff happy.” Plus, Ceridian’s Pulse of Talent research that indicates approximately three quarters of employees are either actively looking for work elsewhere or are passively interested in being recruited.
That’s a challenge for companies looking to stay relevant, and in our case, looking to grow.
… We’re awesome!
“We have the best employees in the business,” says our President, Dermot Strong. “Motion Canada is an industry leader, and I’m proud to work here,” say our employees. So we must let our secret out: we’re awesome! Want proof?
