Telework and return to the office

In order to keep you informed of the situation and to follow up on the last communication on this subject, here is an update.

Status quo

Although the 4th wave seems to be stabilizing in Quebec, we will postpone the implementation of the teleworking policy and the return of employees to the office, to the beginning of 2022 out of prudence.

In the meantime, we will finalize details and continue to explore other flexible working arrangements. Information will be shared with you in December.

In the past few months, several employees have reinstated or are in the process of returning to the office and we are happy to find this great team spirit again.

Health first and foremost

At Transit, we continue to monitor public health measures (hand washing, physical distancing and mask wearing).

In addition, we encourage the vaccination of our employees with a lump sum of $ 150 to compensate for the inconveniences, regardless of the date of employment.

Together we are stronger

Once again, we would like to thank our employees for their efforts in complying with the measures. This has definitely contributed to the fact that there have been no cases of internal transmission in the past few months.

If you have any questions about returning to the office and / or working from home, do not hesitate to contact your manager or the HR team.

Thank you
