Build a Culture I’m Proud of: Tammy Chiasson
March 14, 2022
Connected’s President, Tammy Chiasson, shares her thoughts on building a culture she’s proud of at Connected.
Check out what aspects of our culture she’s most excited about for our Connectors.
Video caption: As President, I have two customers, Connectors and our clients. It’s my job to retain our exceptionally talented team. In this competitive tech market, is that a challenge? Of course it is. But it’s also an opportunity to build a culture I’m proud of. One that focuses on employee wellness as much as driving business results. We have completely reimagined our employee experience and rolled out a modern Total Rewards program. We have gone remote first, giving Connector’s the ability to work anywhere in Canada and abroad for 90 days. What this means is Connectors have the freedom to choose where they work based on where they will have the most professional and personal impact. We rolled out a bonus program for every Connector regardless of role and tenure. We completely revamped our benefits program and are going one step further by adding additional mental health coverage based on Connectors demand. We launched an RRSP program with WealthSimple where we match every Connector’ salary by 5%. And we chose a plan where we pay the fees, not our team. The best part is we are just getting started.

Thoughtworker Spotlight: Justine Lachapelle
Justine Lachapelle is a world traveller, and we couldn't be happier her travels have taken her to us (likely her favourite product helped with that). But, whatever she is doing, there is one constant in Justine's life - people. When she's not earning more stamps in her passport, this health enthusiast constantly stays active, from hiking to snowboarding and everything in between. As Head of People in Canada, you can find her working with the People team, constantly ideating, implementing, and supporting new initiatives and programs like remote-first work and work abroad programs for Thoughtworkers across Canada. Did we give you enough information to guess her favourite product? We didn't think so either. But you can click below to find out in this week's Thoughtworker Spotlight.

Thoughtworker Spotlight: Jason Zheng
Who better than Jason Zheng to jazz (or should we say, Jepsen, as in Carly Rae) us up this January? Whether he's delivering product impact to our clients or coaching and mentoring future generations of engineers, his skill, dedication and passion always shine. When he's not busy wearing iconic nature landmarks shirts (or looking for new ones to add to his collections), you'll find Jason cooking up new recipes, gaming with friends, or savouring in the runner's high. Now, can you guess what his favourite product is? Here's a hint: he can spend hours with it and has not parted with them even after discontinuation, buying multiple pairs as backup.
