Adviso becomes the first Montreal agency to adopt the RPQF work-family balance seal of approval

15 June 2020

Adviso has become the first Montreal agency to join the ranks of Quebec organizations who have obtained the work-family balance seal of approval (in French, Sceau de reconnaissance conciliation famille-travail, or the CFT seal) from the Réseau pour un Québec Famille (RPQF).

The RPQF is a Quebec association that brings together over 4,000 organizations with the goal of offering public policies and measures that are likely to better support employees in the realization of their familial responsibilities and well-being at work. The CFT seal is granted for a 12-month period to companies that have established measures supporting the family lives of their employees.

At Adviso, several measures encouraged by the RPFQ had already been deeply founded in the company’s DNA for over a dozen years. While the agency’s culture is based on superior digital performance, it’s also anchored in wellness and the pleasure of working. Whether in terms of the comfort of its work environment, scheduling flexibility, ability to work remotely, the possibility of taking three weeks of vacation at all times, the psychosocial help offered, access to NABS services, the breakfasts provided, team-building activities or even the ability to pursue continuing education thanks to a budget dedicated to employee development, the health and flourishing of its people lies at the heart of Adviso’s values.

During the lockdown, Adviso has instituted even more measures to foster its employees’ quality of life and that of their families, such as the possibility of taking one day per week to care for children at home and improved insurance coverage to support employees who need to see a mental health specialist during this difficult period.

Some of these measures will be continued and added to initiatives that are already in place. The pandemic has enabled us to improve our standards regarding flexibility and well-being in the future.
