  • Ivanhoé Cambridge's head office employees are located within walking distance to Old Montréal with its many excellent restaurant options and live entertainment in the summer -- employees are also encouraged to leave their cars at home by being only steps from the city's Métro and a BIXI shared-bike station (the head office even hosts an annual bike tune-up clinic for its cycling commuters)
  • Ivanhoé Cambridge supports employees who are new mothers, father or adoptive parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments (to 80% of salary for 18 weeks) -- and helps employees balance work and their personal lives with a range of alternative work arrangements including flexible hours, shortened work week (fewer hours with less pay) and a formal earned days-off program
  • Ivanhoé Cambridge encourages its employees to volunteer through the unique "Give and Take Days" program -- employees receive 2 paid days off each year as long as 1 is dedicated to volunteer work -- and every fall the company hosts the international "Giving Back Day" and invites employees to volunteer in support of selected community organizations in their region -- over 500 employees worldwide participated last year
