Holstein Canada believes in preparing people for success. New employees participate in an orientation program-- one that is built specifically for them and involves most areas of our business.
What's the point of accomplishing something if you don't celebrate it? We regularly celebrate project and goal successes. We track our goals and objectives visually around the office so all can see our progress and what's left to do. We also celebrate long service as a testament to the commitment and loyalty of our people.
To encourage life-long learning and knowledge-building, we support employees' participation in training - coaching, courses, lunch and learn general interest topics, awareness sessions - all with the goal of helping staff meet their educational and professional development pursuits.
Holstein Canada's Brantford Office supports employee comfort and team collaboration. Long and narrow, reflective of dairy barns, the building offers easy access to all work areas in a climate-controlled environment with an abundance of natural light. Meeting space is suitable for quick chats and large meetings. The reception area is welcoming - open, friendly, accessible and bilingual. Employees benefit from a large kitchen, a larger lunchroom, and an outdoor patio.
At Holstein Canada, we actively support the health and safety of our employees through our commitment to provide and maintain a safe and healthy environment. We follow a business casual dress code, creating a professional yet comfortable place to contribute to organizational goals.
