Employee Career Longevity

At Micom, employees enjoy long-lasting fulfilling careers, which is quite rare these days. Veterans such as Guy Gagné, Jacques St-Denis and Jean Poitras are proof of our loyalty to our employees, which extends well into their retirement. This longevity testifies to a professional environment that is nurtured and valued.

Impact on Corporate Culture

Employees like Adrien and Rémi have established convivial traditions: frequent barbecues and the famous pizza dinners. And let’s not forget the donuts/muffins to mark birthdays and the arrival of new employees, and the cakes for other special occasions. At Micom, these events are more than just social moments; they are rituals that reinforce team cohesion and morale. These initiatives clearly show that employees can establish a welcoming corporate culture.

Employees from Russia, Poland, Romania, Sri Lanka and India have been recruited to join Micom’s dynamic team. This diversity brings a wealth of perspectives that enhance creativity and problem-solving approaches to our materials testing services.
