Avon offers opportunities for training and development to help Team Members build a strong foundation for individual and company success, and to ensure our Team Members are meeting the demands of the ever-changing labour market.
At an individual level, Team Members participate in the Performance Management Process which includes goal setting, mid-year and annual performance reviews. We focus on sharing career aspirations, outlining performance and development goals, providing relevant feedback, and establishing action plans.
Avon offers training initiatives to Team Members that focus on necessary skills that affect the business. We also provide tuition reimbursement to Team Members who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in a job-related field.
In addition, Avon promotes a culture of continuous improvement and offers internal career mobility opportunities providing the chance for Team Members to further develop their knowledge and skills.
We host fun events throughout the year from wellness activities and cultural celebrations to a wide variety of national holidays including our annual company-wide Halloween contest.
Our collaborative Intranet site is a one-stop-shop to access company news and resources, recognize other team members, learn about upcoming events, participate in surveys, engage in trivia and more.
Avon is committed to maintaining a culture that values the strengths and differences of our Team Members. Our goal is to facilitate a work environment in which everyone feels engaged, feels understood and feels a sense of belonging; a place where all can share points of view, offer ideas, and be recognized for their contributions.
We define diversity as the unique collection of qualities, perspectives, talents and skills that individuals are born with and acquire through life’s experiences and choices. Inclusion involves actively embracing diversity, ensuring each person feels comfortable and encouraged to bring his or her “whole self” to work. Equity in the workplace refers to fair treatment in access, opportunity and advancement for all individuals.
We are committed to attracting, developing, retaining and leveraging diversity of thought, background, and experience.
Avon is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for Team Members, contract employees and visitors.
We work to ensure all sites meet regulatory and safety standards. We have established stringent internal safety requirements to ensure consistency in safety processes across our operations. This includes adhering to all Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and local guidelines as they relate to COVID-19.
The foundation of our health and safety programs at individual sites is ensured through compliance with local regulations, and by conducting risk assessments of tasks performed. We develop safe operating procedures; and provide new hire safety orientations, job training, and training for specific topics, such as ergonomics, electrical and chemical safety, among others.
