DLGL Technologies Corporation, a Blainvile, Quebec-based publisher of integrated software systems for Human Capital Management announced May 14 that it will pay all employees a bonus of $1,250 upon proof of COVID-19 vaccination for a first shot, and another $1,250 upon the second shot.
The company adds that it is in recruitment mode and will pay the bonus to vaccinated new hires as well.
"We want to do our share in the pursuit of a secure society for all, the easing of the stress on the health system, and we want to create as soon as possible the conditions for getting back in to our headquarters in Blainville, with its spacious offices and huge windowing, its gyms and training rooms, cafeterias, golf simulators, and all those opportunities to work together that everybody misses so much," stated the company’s president Jacques Guénette.
DLGL’s Director of Operations Paul Lavallée added that the company’s goal is to have a hybrid approach of remote and office-based work for its employees. “We have proven that we can be just as efficient in working from home mode, but efficiency and costs are not the only yardsticks. We have always been ready to invest in assets and organizational modes in support of a culture where people can be happy. This is a new additional opportunity to do better. And a complete vaccination will bring us closer to all these options."
