Cedarome’s health and safety committee is composed of employees from all areas of operations. Designated responders are assigned and trained to intervene in case of an emergency. This vital training is updated on an annual basis.

Cedarome promotes the physical and mental health of its employees with an onsite well equipped gym, a massage therapist and access to a psychologist.

To create and maintain a good work atmosphere, a spirit of inclusiveness is fostered. Social activities are organized inside and outside of work. Lunchtime tournaments composed of players from different departments serve as team building exercises. Regularly at the weekly communal lunch, employees volunteer to help in the preparation, or bring a dish from home to share. The latter, an international potluck allows co-workers to discover each other’s cultural heritage.
