Toronto, ON – It hasn’t always been easy, but throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has remained agile, customer-centric, caring, and collaborative. That’s why, last year, we re-examined how we’re investing in our employee culture and recognition efforts and introduced several employee-facing initiatives and wellness supports.
In our 2021 Community Report, we share what working at LifeLabs looks like in a post-pandemic world. In the Recognizing and Caring for our Employees section of the report, we celebrate the return of our Summer BBQs and Med Lab Week events, showcase examples of employee excellence, and share how we step up to support one another in times of need.
STANDING TOGETHER DURING THE BRITISH COLUMBIA FLOODS
One of the things that get people through tough times is teamwork. Nowhere was this more evident than during the unprecedented flooding in B.C.’s Fraser Valley in the fall of 2021.
Our teams at LifeLabs pulled together heroically during this emergency to keep each other safe, continue to provide essential services and support their communities while also dealing with the stress and impact in their personal lives. Logistics stepped in to quickly re-route pick-up and delivery of specimens and supplies, working around road and highway closures. Read the full story here.
Our people are at the heart of what we do at LifeLabs. Learn how we’re supporting and celebrating our employees and what it means to be part of team LifeLabs by exploring Empowering our Tomorrow, our 2021 Community Report, here.
