Our Work Environment
The work environment at We Thrive is collaborative, compassionate, innovative and flexible. Our business practices draw inspiration from both masculine and feminine models of organization and communication – settling on the best approaches most effective at maintaining a welcoming, fun and inspired work environment. It is important to us that our team members feel appreciated, respected and honoured for their valued contributions to our community. We consider our centre a unique and enjoyable place to work.
Compassion is a central tenet to our approach to care at We Thrive. To create a safe and welcoming environment, we use a compassionate tone when communicating amongst our team, with the people we care for, and with the wider community. Compassion is important to understanding the challenges people face and to communicating our desire for wellness and healing. Compassion is something we do well. It comes naturally to our team and is appreciated by the people who access our services.
We welcome practitioners and staff onto our team who appreciate the collaborative nature in which our team members work and thrive. It is central to our philosophy of healing, for practitioners and staff to value and understand the benefits of other modalities, practices and techniques. We Thrive practitioners appreciate how the work of team members enhances their own practice, and elevates the return to wellness of the people in their care.
At We Thrive we are not content to do things the way others are doing them just because that is how it has always been done. It is our commitment to the people in our care and to our team of practitioners to always strive to find the most creative and caring way to conduct business. We encourage our team and the people in our care to challenge us with new ideas and push us outside our comfort zone. We work hard at We Thrive to create an environment that fosters creativity and new ways of working.
Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is one way that We Thrive can walk its talk. Our team members are encouraged to prioritize the needs of self, family, rest and movement when determining workload and work hours. At We Thrive, each team member determines for themselves the hours they will work. We encourage our team to take advantage of lunch time movement and mindfulness classes in the studio, and team social gatherings throughout the workday.
