Bird values the importance of creating inclusive, respectful, and equitable working environments. Bird is committed to promoting employment equity by providing a workplace environment that treats all employees with respect and dignity. We need to reflect the diversity of Canadian society in our workforce, and believe in proactively managing the special measures outlined in the Employment Equity Act. In order to provide equal employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals, employment decisions at the company are based on merit, qualifications, and abilities. The company does not discriminate in employment opportunities or practices on the basis of race or colour, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, genetic characteristics, pardoned conviction, disability, sexual orientation, or any other prohibited ground. When there is under-representation, Bird will give preference to equally qualified candidates who are members of the designated groups stated in the Employment Equity Act.
At Bird, we are committed to an open and transparent learning culture that promotes continuous improvement and shared accountability. We believe that commitment to our employees' success leads to collective success, and our goal is to provide quality training that is beneficial, accessible, affordable, and timely. Bird encourages all employees to take an active role in their own self-development by continually seeking to improve their skills and education. As a result, Bird offers tuition reimbursement to help share the cost of external, work-related educational programs. A variety of training materials, both on-demand and scheduled, are provided through Bird's intranet portal. There is also regular peer-to-peer training and information sharing, such as the weekly Quality Lessons Learned presentations that share best practices from site situations.
