Keurig Canada is off to a great start in 2018 after being named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. Organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, this special annual designation recognizes employers that offer the best workplaces and programs for young people at the dawn of their careers. This honour is added to Keurig’s growing list of employer awards, including being named one of Montréal’s Top Employers and Canada’s Top 100 Employers. While Keurig continuously strives to provide its customers with the best products and services, offering young people the opportunities and the environment to empower and self-actualize is perfectly aligned with the Company’s pursuit of its primary goal: customer experience innovation.
” Keurig is honoured to be named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. Young employees are key to our success and we greatly value their contribution to challenge the way we brew our business,” says Stéphane Glorieux, President of Keurig Canada, who often works personally with the Company’s young employees. “We believe that every age has its talents. Hiring interns and young graduates who, like us, are passionate and ambitious, is something we nurture to make a difference, both in our community and in terms of innovation, with projects such as our new recyclable K-Cup® pods.”
Keurig not only aims to steadily innovate with its products and services, but also with its working environment, especially for its young employees. In addition to a collaborative work set-up, Keurig offers the new Caffeine program, which involves formal rotations for new graduates through different roles over a three-year period. The company also offers opportunities such as flexible hours and mentoring programs, all in a welcoming environment. As Bobby Bakos, a former intern who now works as a financial analyst, explains: ” Keurig is like a family. When I first started as an intern, I immediately felt part of the team and respected. I was able to grow quickly thanks to my mentor but also because I was given many responsibilities, which made me learn a lot but also made me so motivated because I felt like I was truly making an impact in the company.”
Keurig knows that its people — and particularly its young employees — are key to its success and to fulfilling its mission. Their awareness of the importance of sustainable development is perfectly aligned with the type of innovation and leadership that Keurig wants to foster. For example, Keurig’s CAFE program (Community Action For Employees) enables employees to volunteer up to 52 hours each year during their work time. To enable them to further their education, Keurig offers them access to a Continuous Learning Curriculum to help them expand their expertise, formally and informally.
Keurig is always looking for ambitious and forward-thinking young talents who like challenges. A recognition such as Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is made possible through the passion, collaboration and innovation of its people.
