Life at Intersol
The foundation of a workplace starts with its’ culture. We believe that creating effective organizational culture does not mean putting sparkling water on tap and expecting everyone to stay after hours in return. In fact, we don’t expect our staff to come in to an office at all. We work remotely and believe we can create a remote work culture that is just as friendly, engaging and supportive as an office setting, where team members are encouraged and enabled to develop their skills and enjoy a rewarding career.
Other culture highlights include:
Intersol Community Gathering
We plan monthly meetings for the team to connect in a relaxed setting to catch up on life, not business. We value our team's diverse experiences and expertise and see the gathering as an opportunity to grow professionally and personally. We also understand that work gets busy. Offering flexibility around these initiatives means they can be something to look forward to rather than one more thing to fit into your calendar.
Learning & Development
Providing the opportunity for consultants to boost their knowledge and advance their professional skills is a win-win. That's why we offer monthly learning & development sessions and encourage an atmosphere of curiosity and continuous learning. These sessions are held in different areas across Ottawa and are selected based on relevant topics to our practice. We also provide annual in-house professional development budgets.
Work with Meaning
If you ask our senior consultants why they continue to do this work after 30 years, they will tell you the same thing: because it’s meaningful. Facilitators get to work on topics that bring impactful change, or with organizations that do really cool stuff, and, well, that’s not a bad way to earn a living. The fact is, our people are passionate because they found purpose, and it’s one of the most rewarding parts of our work.
Not just Flexibility, but Autonomy
At Intersol, flexibility is in our DNA. We don't measure productivity based on where you work. Cutting the commute out of your day can mean the difference between starting early when you’re fresh, or spending a frazzled hour in traffic and starting the day on edge. That is why we offer all of our consultants the ability to work remotely. As a consulting firm, we operate a little differently, there isn’t a hustle mentality or a “grind”. We offer a workplace that gives more than just flexibility and balance, we aim to give our team autonomy and control. When the objectives are clear, then deliverables are either met or unmet. We are in the business of results, so how you achieve those results, or how long it takes, is simply, not our business.
Balance and Backup
We believe work-life balance is essential in order to run on all cylinders. You shouldn’t have to choose between work and family priorities. Intersol's community of professionals offers our consultants peace of mind to focus on what's most important when unforeseen circumstances arise, knowing that one of our qualified colleagues has their back.
Intersol understands the importance of having a career that gives you true happiness. When you are proud of the company you work for, your well-being is boosted, and it doesn’t feel like you’re working. We aim to give you that feeling, and we also actively encourage our team to give back to the community who has helped to make us who we are today.
