We sought to dissolve the natural hierarchy that develops in any business. This desire is reflected in an avant-garde set up of work spaces and a policy of "advice and open doors":
''Advice and open doors'' policy: our goal is to provide a pleasant work environment for everyone. How do we accomplish this?
Tootelo believes that this direct method of communication is best for all, with no interference from third parties. Thus, any employee who wishes to express their concerns, opinions and suggestions will always find an open door and an open ear.
We are proud to offer a series of different benefits to all of our employees:
This way of working is encouraged for almost every position in the company. Our IT staff can set up your laptop so that our employees can work from the comfort of their home.
We believe that it's important to contribute to our employees' retirement, one way or another. That's why we make $250/year available to our employees, which can be used in a few different ways.
We consider it a priority to respect the dates that employees request for holidays. Upon hiring, all Tootelo employees are entitled to six weeks of paid vacation.
After 5 years, each employee receives an additional week's vacation.
Tootelo attaches an almost infinite flexibility in its employees' schedules. Here are a few examples:
As a Tootelo employee, you can update your availability up to four times per year. This is especially helpful for students who want to work full-time during the summer and part-time the rest of the year.
We recognize the availability of each employee, and pay them accordingly. This includes bonuses for night shifts, as well as a bonus if you are able to come in last-minute upon request of a team leader.
We consider it a priority to offer our employees an ergonomic workspace.
We help employees and their immediate families register with a family doctor.
In order to maintain a healthy environment for our staff, we pay one of our workers to make suggestions on how to encourage good health among employees.
Tootelo finances its own health fund program to cover costs that are not part of our collective insurance. Unused amounts are carried over to the next year.
Any expense related to sports or physical activity, whether material, professional, or academic is eligible for a partial refund from the company.
Employees have access to free advice from a nutritionist, as well as free access to counselling.
Occasionally, employees benefit from the services of a massage therapist who comes to the office.
We've made it easy for employees to find a replacement should there be a conflict in the schedule. Employees can send out a department-wide request to switch shifts or be replaced altogether.
