Inclusivity is the active state of being inclusive! Our company’s willingness and ability to accommodate has led to a very diverse work culture.
Our primary focus is building trust, offering stepping stones and providing encouragement for all individuals to work within their abilities and find success in a rewarding environment. Showcasing our champions (staff members) is extremely important to us.
Our secondary focus is collaboration with our strategic partners for a clean, healthy and accepting workplace.
What does inclusivity look like at IFC?
For us, it’s a not a question. We are humans who interact with humans!
> Respect everyone
> Acknowledge all individuals and what each person shares
> Accept the ability and capacity of each individual
> Protect all humans from inappropriate interaction, harm and embarrassment
Our employees are an extension of our core operations. It’s important for us to be transparent; we will not commit to and/or make promises with our clients, partners and - most importantly - our staff, unless we can.
For us, it’s not about finding the “right fit.” We want to form flexible partnerships that allow us to create the perfect fit among employees, management, and clients. Sometimes the right fit requires input and adjustment.
In accordance with workplace legislation, we are more than happy to commit to the “Duty to Accommodate” standard. We will not discriminate against employees based on protected characteristics, such as disability or gender, and we are prepared to make every reasonable effort to provide and maintain employment.
Employees are encouraged to identify challenges at the time of hire and request special accommodations where necessary.
