Thomson Reuters is dedicated to improving workplace flexibility and wellbeing for employees.
The Canadian multinational media conglomerate announced this month that it is expanding its Work from Anywhere policy. The Toronto-born giant also unveiled a new sabbatical program arriving this fall.
“Throughout the pandemic, we saw survey after survey showing employees across sectors feeling burned out and striving for greater balance and flexibility,” explains Chief People Officer Mary Alice Vuicic in a blog post.
In fact, she says, a recent study of workers in the United States by The Conference Board found that “work pressures are so great that half of the respondents said work demands are taking a bigger toll on their mental health than COVID-19.”
Vuicic says that Thomson Reuters “has always been a leader in work-life balance,” so the company felt compelled to do more for workers.
“As we emerge from the pandemic and establish new norms for hybrid working, we are committed to strengthening our leadership position in flexibility and wellbeing,” she stated online. “They are foundational building blocks to supporting our employees and attracting talent.”
In February, Thomson Reuters launched Flex My Way, a supportive workplace policy that Vuicic and her team are now building on the with new global benefits, including an expanded Work from Anywhere program. Employees can now work up to four weeks of their eight-week annual allowance outside of their country of employment.
In addition, a new sabbatical program launches in September, she adds. This policy will provide established employees the opportunity to take up to six months of unpaid leave every five years.
“There is no one lever to pull to help employees thrive both personally and professionally,” writes Vuicic. “Employees know this and are looking beyond compensation to seek employers providing flexibility, prioritizing wellbeing and mental health, delivering growth and development opportunities, and creating an opportunity to work towards a higher purpose.”
The company earns frequent accolades as an employer. For example, Thomson Reuters Canada has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada by The Globe and Mail for 13 years in a row. Glassdoor named TR a Best Place to Work in Canada for 2022, and LinkedIn also recently recognized TR as a top employer. Oh, plus—
Never mind, you get the picture.
Good news then that Thomson Reuters is actively hiring for more than 100 positions in Canada, including dozens of technology-related roles.
Within Canada, the company currently employees roughly 1,300 people across multiple offices, including one in Montreal and a major base in Toronto.
Overall, Thomson Reuters operates several spaces in the region, including the Technology Centre and TR Labs, both of which are located in Toronto.
