Our Approach to our People
As an employer and investor, we believe a hallmark of value-creating companies is their ability to attract and retain a talented and diverse workforce. Our responsible management philosophy guides the way in which we manage and develop our people and enables the growth of our group of companies. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels valued, connected and supported, and where they can thrive both professionally and personally.
We are committed to building teams of truly exceptional people, individuals who represent diverse educational backgrounds, with a sound moral and ethical foundation. We actively support a culture of development and performance and create flexible, balanced workplaces that recognize the value of diversity and personal well-being. These values and commitments are reflected in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which provides guidance to our employees on how they should conduct our business activities. We reinforce these commitments and values through training and ongoing dialogue.
Power Corporation’s policies, commitments and people programs are overseen by the Vice-President, Human Resources and Administration. At the Power Corporation level, we are committed to our employees' advancement through a focus on:
diversity, equity and inclusion
health, safety and well-being
We also engage with our group companies on their people management strategies. Overall, as at December 31, 2022, our group of companies employed approximately 37,300 people worldwide.
