The entire team gets together on the first Friday of every month to enjoy different cultural cuisines like Caribbean, Indian or Middle Eastern. Our kitchen is also never without assorted coffee, hot chocolate, tea, juices, sodas, oatmeal and healthy fruits.
Throughout the year, we organize several non-work-related social events like an executive suite at a Blue Jays Game, go-cart racing, BBQ’s, and theatre shows. We sponsor a yearly event at a Performing Arts Centre and show our support by purchasing tickets for our team and their guests. Our CEO, Shael Risman hosts an annual “One Brave Night” concert in collaboration with The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). It’s a night out with talented performances by Shael, PACE team members and other performers – all proceeds go towards mental health awareness, research programs and services.
Since the pandemic, we have gotten a little creative with our downtime for social events. During the week, we normally have a Thursday virtual game night with the whole crew and play a list of different games like Scribbl, Spyfall, Jackbox and more! We also have Friday evening virtual Happy Hour each week!
We have daily virtual team huddles and monthly one-on-one meetings to gauge how our team is coping with working remotely, track their progress, give feedback and advice. Departments have their own group after work activities at a location of their choosing. These gatherings celebrate events such as a new team member, department goals reached and birthdays. We also have a weekly reoccurring virtual “All-Staff” meeting with our President and CEO where we share wins, highs and lows and most importantly, check-in with each other.
