Corporate social responsibility
Learn about the WCB’s commitment to be socially responsible in our workplaces and in our communities.
Our corporate values and beliefs enable a culture of continuous process improvement and are core to creating a customer‐centric organization by focusing on five key areas of the customer experience – people, Mission: Zero, financial, timeliness and quality. These values and beliefs guide our commitment to be socially responsible in our workplaces and in our communities.
There are four ways that we practice social responsibility:
- By our leadership and influence in workplace safety and injury prevention.
- Through our impact on the environment.
- By providing a healthy and safe work environment for our employees.
- Through our support of non-profit and community organizations.
Workplace safety and injury prevention
Every injury is predictable and preventable. Even one injury is too many and we believe it is socially responsible to use our influence to reach Mission: Zero’s goal of zero injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering.
We work to lessen our impact on the environment through automation/technology, recycling programs, providing support to employees in their efforts and sourcing vendors who demonstrate their commitment to the environment.
A healthy and safe working environment
We provide support for programs related to employee health and safety, e.g. healthy lifestyles, LifeWorks, fitness classes, flu clinics and many other initiatives. We also want our employees to work safely on a day-to-day basis and, as such, our employees are provided with ergonomic assessments and sit/stand workstations.
Support for non-profit and community organizations
We are proud of our employees who give back to their communities as volunteers and community leaders. To support their volunteerism, every employee is eligible to take up to one paid day a year to promote health and safety and work with charitable organizations.
Financial support to community organizations:
We provide financial support to charities and community organizations and events that positively impact injured workers and their employers, promote health and safety, or that further the WCB’s corporate strategies and objectives.
