A message from Victoria MacDonald, our Chief People Officer

“Since joining WE in 2017, I’ve been focused on continuously building a best-in-class HR team and processes, drawing on more than two decades of experience. I’m proud to say that our People Operations and Culture Team possesses more than 50 years of collective experience in human resource management. We ensure that WE is not only in full compliance with labor laws and industry standards for compensation and benefits, but also strives every day to exceed those standards to provide a rewarding working environment for our incredible team of change-makers.

“It’s meaningful that, in their independent review, workplace advocates Singh Lamarche LLP stated that WE’s policies are the ‘gold standard’ in promoting accessibility, transparency and protecting employees from discrimination, harassment and sexual harrassment. I’m proud to say that our policies provide for employees’ ability to raise concerns about health and safety, or any issue, by reporting to their manager, to another manager, to me directly or anonymously through our secure online WE Connect internal communications platform.
