Corporate social responsibility is everyone’s business. That is why Ivanhoé Cambridge is committed to upholding best practices in environmental stewardship and community involvement and to fostering a culture of engagement among its employees.

Ivanhoé Cambridge owes its success to the talent and expertise of its teams. As such, it offers employees a dynamic, motivating environment to bring out their full potential.

An employer of choice

In 2017, for the sixth year in a row, Ivanhoé Cambridge was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp. This prestigious competition evaluates organizations based on eight criteria: physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

Opportunities for professional fulfillment

Ivanhoé Cambridge offers stimulating challenges to individuals who are driven to learn and grow. Its performance-oriented culture is rooted in diligence, integrity and the highest standards of excellence.

Professional development is a priority for Ivanhoé Cambridge, as is training the next generation of professionals. Employees have access to a self-service training system that makes it possible to enhance key competencies the Company targets, leadership skills and language proficiency. The average amount of time spent by permanent employees on in-class and online training works out to close to 13 hours per year.

The internship program established in 2014 gives up-and-coming talent the chance to prove themselves and bring new energy to various teams. Internships are also an opportunity for the Company to build the workforce of tomorrow by identifying high-potential recruits early in their careers. In 2017, Ivanhoé Cambridge hired 57 interns, 10 of whom subsequently found employment with the Company.

Committed to giving back

Ivanhoé Cambridge recognizes the importance of employee engagement. As such, it actively supports a number of causes and finds ways to encourage its employees to do the same. This helps magnify the impact of their efforts and ensure they have a lasting effect in their communities.

In this spirit, the Company has implemented a range of programs for employees who wish to give back. These activities not only generate positive repercussions in the community, they promote a sense of pride for participants and nurture a spirit of belonging to the Company.

Giving Back Day

Every year, Ivanhoé Cambridge encourages its employees to take part in a day-long group volunteering event known as Giving Back Day. On September 29, 2017, 453 employees across the Company’s offices and managed properties teamed up to lend a helping hand to some 30 community organizations, contributing over 3,170 volunteer hours in a single day to a number of worthy endeavours.

Give-and-Take Program

Last year, 219 employees volunteered for the charitable organization of their choice as part of the Give-and-Take program, which encourages employees to give back to organizations that are important to them by granting them two days of paid leave per year for this purpose.

Matching Donations Program

Ivanhoé Cambridge undertakes to match employees’ personal donations to the recognized charities of their choosing. In 2017, this program generated more than $34,000 in matched donations.

A business is defined not just by what it has accomplished and what it specializes in, but also by the talent that makes up its workforce. At Ivanhoé Cambridge, we are fortunate to have in our ranks employees with major expertise in their field and varied skill sets that enable us to maintain our leadership position. And we do everything in our power to continue to attract, develop and retain the best and the brightest.
