Keurig Dr Pepper Canada Honoured as One of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for Fourth Consecutive Year
Company recognized for its unwavering support to employees and communities across the country
MONTREAL, Quebec – November 13, 2020 — Keurig Dr Pepper Canada, the third-largest Canadian-based non-alcoholic beverage company, has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers. For more than 20 years, this prestigious national competition has determined which employers have led their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for Canadians. This year, it looked not only at benefits and work-life balance, but also at how the finalists supported their employees and their communities during these unprecedented times.
As the COVID-19 pandemic completely changed the way Canadians live and work, Keurig Dr Pepper Canada acted quickly to give back. Through its Fuelling the Front Line program, the Company donated more than 600,000 cups of coffee to frontline groups, primarily healthcare workers. Keurig Dr Pepper Canada also donated nearly 8.5 million cups of coffee to Canadian food banks and financially supported the Breakfast Club of Canada Emergency Fund.
“Supporting our local communities is an integral part of our corporate responsibility platform, and as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, we wanted to help those in need,” says Stéphane Glorieux, President, Keurig Dr Pepper Canada. “It was also really important to give all our employees the opportunity to give back as well through our Fuelling the Front Line program.”
As an integral part of the food and beverage supply chain, Keurig Dr Pepper Canada quickly implemented additional safety measures and benefits for its plant and distribution frontline employees, including enhanced sanitation protocols, temperature checks, social distancing, wellness initiatives and a new telemedicine program. Many of the new benefits were also extended to the Company’s employees working remotely.
“At Keurig Dr Pepper Canada, our focus is having a one-team approach on everything we do,” added Glorieux. “I am proud of our team and what we have accomplished over the past few months, and we will continue to offer our employees a welcoming work environment where they can thrive and be proud of what they do.”
Other initiatives and benefits Keurig Dr Pepper Canada offers its employees include product discounts, flexible health plans and ongoing employee development through tuition subsidies and a variety of in-house and online training opportunities. The Company also encourages its employees to support their communities by volunteering with and donating to their nonprofits of choice.
