NAV CANADA - One of Canada's Top 100 Employers
(Ottawa, November 22, 2019) – NAV CANADA is honoured to be
among Canada’s Top 100 Employers for a fourth consecutive year.
While there are many reasons for this award, in large part,
it is the NAV CANADA employees who have earned this distinction with their
remarkable stories of positive change inside and outside the company.
“We want employees who wish to be part of a world-leading
organization,” says Neil Wilson, president and CEO. “We are committed to giving
those people a supportive environment, both at work and in their communities.”
With over 5,000 employees across the country NAV CANADA
professionals keep aircraft moving safely in our Canadian airspace and still
take the time to pull together for communities and to support their peers for a healthy work environment.
In fact, NAV CANADA supported more than 300 charities and
community organizations and contributed over $1 million to community causes.
They are the coaches, organizers and fundraiser involved in local sports teams,
youth programs, food banks, hospitals, homeless shelters, cultural and environmental
activities and much more.
NAV CANADA Cares encourages employees to support a cause or
charity by matching individual contributions or providing funds for employees
to support charitable efforts in more remote locations.
One team of volunteer women called “A Safe Place to Land”
helped build a home for a local family through Habitat for Humanity’s Women
Build and exceeded the charity’s entire fundraising goal for that construction
build, winning them the Pink Helmet Award as top corporate team.
So, it’s no surprise that people giving so much outside the
company, also perform as valued employees - investing in a supportive work
environment for peers.
THRIVE is among the growing number of Company wellness and
peer support programs available to promote physical, psychological and
financial well-being of NAV CANADA’s people and their families.
It is a voluntary and confidential peer support program,
where an experienced Air Traffic Controller or Flight Service Specialist is
paired with a student throughout their training to mentor and provide a
holistic support system to ensure resilience and help improve success rates
across the country.
NAV CANADA is an exceptional place to work for many reasons
but most importantly, it is because of its people – caring, inclusive and
diverse, driving innovation, excellence and business results.
