We’re seeking individuals with a purpose and passion for life and who are looking for meaningful work that will make a real difference.
Cogir Senior Living manages retirement residences across the country. We offer a range of senior living options including independent living, assisted living and memory care.
For over 25 years, we have dedicated every day to the happiness of retirees.
Human beings are the focus of our mission which is “real estate with purpose”. They are the foundation of our culture as well as our priority. For us, the human being is everywhere and is the basis for all our actions and decisions.
Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients, today and in the future.
Our team identity is based on three pillars:
Through every action, we think about human beings and aim to serve them with a sense of empathy that makes us unique.
We have a team responsibility to innovate every day by offering new services and shaking up the status quo.
Always do better than yesterday. For us, service is a dynamic concept. By working together, we are committed to constantly improving what we do.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of purpose, and we create environments that make this possible.
As employees, every workday is a unique experience. We offer a healthy environment, with inspiring leaders who set clear goals, acknowledge the efforts made and encourage internal advancement. Moreover, we’re offering benefits that reflect the needs of today. There are various options available to allow for a healthy work-life balance.
Our team members enjoy working together in a trusting environment where diversity is respected. Cogir helps colleagues develop strong friendships every day through social and sporting activities.
There is free dialogue, coaching is ongoing, allowing team members to hone their skills, and advance within the company. Above all, there is a strong sense of accomplishment.
Vaccination will be a condition of employment for new hires, except when impossible due to legitimate, established exceptions. In such cases, additional PPE and testing may be required. The vaccine must be a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series approved by Health Canada. This is one more important step to protect both our residents and staff as we continue to battle this deadly virus.
At Cogir, we believe in giving the people in our residences the opportunity to live their best lives – and that applies to our employees as much as it does our residents. That is why we offer our employees a competitive base pay as well as comprehensive benefits, which may include prescription drug coverage, dental, vision, disability, life insurance, accidental death, group retirement plans, and an employee and family assistance program. Cogir is also proud to partner with Perkopolis, an employee perks program where our staff can have access to thousands of exclusive offers from more than 500 brands.
Ongoing education is a core value at Cogir. Our training program provides consultation and resources for employees as they develop their leadership competencies. Employees also have the opportunity to connect with experienced Cogir leaders who are committed to supporting employee development through our mentorship program.
We make it our mission to ensure employees have the tools they need to excel in their roles, through a blended approach of hands-on work, job shadowing and self-directed learning.
Our onboarding program is designed to help staff members build strong ties with their co-workers, managers and regional teams, and with the Cogir culture as a whole. We want to help everyone feel connected – to each other, and to our values as a company.
Cogir is committed to fostering a positive workplace culture for all employees. As an organization, we are dedicated to eliminating barriers for our diverse community by continuously revisiting our policies and practices. Recognizing that leaders often have the biggest impact on the employee experience, inclusive leadership behaviours are trained and embedded at all levels of management.
At Cogir, we strive to cultivate a culture of well-being through four key dimensions: financial, physical, social and mental. We believe that when employees thrive individually, we all thrive together as a team. At Cogir, we encourage positive behaviours and we inspire each other to take responsibility for our own well-being. Pivotal to our approach is education and awareness, and our employee intranet is an engaging resource centre available to help our staff find resources they need for committing to their well-being goals.
