Industrial Alliance’s Montreal Offices Earn “Healthy Enterprise” Certification

News Release

The Montreal offices of Industrial Alliance received the “Healthy Enterprise” certification from the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) last February. The certification program, open to all businesses or organizations regardless of their size or products, was designed to recognize organizational practices that nurture better health in the workplace.

To receive this certification, our Montreal offices introduced measures to ensure employee safety, health, and well-being, by developing a workplace prevention and health promotion policy based on the five values of the Industrial Alliance Group:

  • Teamwork
  • High performance climate
  • Continuous improvement
  • Respect Service

Through this commitment, Industrial Alliance has put forward initiatives promoting healthy habits:

  • A healthy work environment 
  • A culture of prevention in the workplace 
  • An employee assistance program 
  • Daily physical activity 
  • Healthy eating 
  • Work–family–leisure balance 
  • A smoke-free environment

The Montreal offices have nearly 450 employees at the following locations:

  • 680 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, QC H3B 3K5
  • 1981 McGill College Avenue, Suite 255, Montreal, QC H3A 3A8
  • 2000 McGill College Avenue, Montreal, QC H3A 3H3

Jacques Parent, Senior Vice-President, Group Insurance, and his committee are overseeing the implementation of this initiative and the workplace prevention and health promotion program.

With this experience, Industrial Alliance is able to support its clients who wish to undertake such an approach.
