The Centre has just had its Remarkable Employer certification renewed by the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ). This certification is awarded to businesses that implement best practices in human resources management. The Centre received its initial certification in 2013.
To obtain renewal, the Centre had to conduct a confidential employee survey and score more than 75% in the study of 69 human resources practices in 14 areas (communications, working conditions, atmosphere and quality of work life).
Together with the Investissement-compétences certification issued jointly by Services Québec and the Commission des partenaires du marché du travail, this renewal clearly demonstrates the Centre’s commitment to providing employees with a work environment that encourages personal and professional development as well as collaboration in achieving the Centre’s mission.
The Côte-des-Neiges Job Search Centre has been the first non-profit organization in the Greater Montréal Area to be granted Remarkable Employer certification.
