Our culture is one of openness and transparency and we welcome feedback from our employees, both positive and critical. Employee feedback allows us to re-calibrate and re-focus on the priorities and initiatives that matter most to our staff. We are extremely proud of our engagement results, and have achieved a 2016 score of 87% (well above the industry benchmark of 69%) on our last employee engagement survey.

Even though our G&F colours are orange and blue, we’re a very green organization at heart. We’ve taken several measures to work towards environmental sustainability and have earned a ClimateSmart certification for our reduced carbon emissions, which we have successfully reduced since 2010.  We offer our employees several options to make sustainable and environmentally friendly choices at work, including a robust recycling program, organics composting and transit subsidies to incentivize alternative methods of commuting to and from work.

G&F is a collaborative organization and we value the input of our employees on which charities we choose to support throughout the year. For the last several years, G&F has been supporting the United Way Lower Mainland and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.We also host an annual golf tournament that supports a new charity each year. For 2016, we support the Richmond Hospital Foundation.

Through our G&F Foundation, we encourage our employees to submit names to fundraise for the charity that personally resonates with them.
