Quebec, Canada – December 20, 2023 – Korem, the geospatial one-stop-shop, is pleased to announce the implementation of a four-day workweek for all its employees starting in 2024. This initiative aims to attract and retain top employees, providing a work environment that enables a professional and personal life balance, while maintaining high quality service standards for its clients.
This transition is part of a deliberate process initiated two years ago. It has allowed employees, clients, and partners to gradually adapt to this new schedule. As part of this project, all employees are encouraged to embrace this flexible work schedule, emphasizing on professional autonomy, while ensuring the optimization of processes and work methods to achieve both individual and organizational goals.
“Korem’s commitment to excellence and quality service remains an absolute priority. Reducing the workweek does not imply a decrease in commitment, productivity, or work satisfaction. On the contrary, Korem aims for a productivity increase of about 15% and a boost in team motivation, benefiting the entire company ecosystem,” states Marise Drapeau, Vice President of Finance and Administration.
“Employees are very grateful to benefit from schedule flexibility with the four-day workweeks. This facilitates the balance between professional and personal life. This project was indeed very engaging for our teams, who had to demonstrate resourcefulness and commitment to optimize work practices,” adds Catherine Bourassa, Senior HR Business Partner.
The four-day workweek project strengthens Korem’s commitment to investing in its employees without affecting corporate results. This initiative reflects our vision where innovation and employee well-being are forefront.
