Dear COR Family,

We are overjoyed to share some fantastic news with you – thanks to your unwavering support, COR has been honored with the prestigious title of Waterstone Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures! This achievement marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we want to express our deepest gratitude to each one of you who has contributed to making this possible.

Throughout the year, we’ve been fortunate to receive multiple culture-related accolades that truly encapsulate the essence of being a part of the COR family. From being named one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers for the third consecutive year to being recognized as one of Canada’s Healthiest Workplaces in 2019, these awards reflect our collective commitment to fostering a unique and meaningful organizational culture.

So, what sets COR apart? The answer is simple yet profound – it’s the people and their values. Every member of the COR family is a passionate individual who wholeheartedly embraces our culture of gentleness. We pride ourselves on cultivating an environment of belonging, purpose-driven leadership, and compassionate interactions.

Ten years ago, we embarked on a journey to challenge the status quo in care, aiming to show that care could be delivered differently. Our focus was on providing those we serve with genuine opportunities for choice and control over their lives. Simultaneously, we recognized the pivotal role of our employees – the heart of our organization. By prioritizing the well-being of our team members, we ensured they could, in turn, provide exceptional care to the individuals and families we support.

Remaining true to our roots, we continue to be guided by the principles of Gentle Teaching. Our commitment is unwavering, as we strive to foster a culture of gentleness and belonging within our organization. This commitment ensures that everyone in the COR family feels safe, valued, and part of something extraordinary.

Looking ahead, our focus remains on several key areas:

1. Elevating the employee experience, with a particular emphasis on workplace flexibility and cultivating strong leaders.
2.Strengthening formal mentorship and leadership development initiatives, deepening our coaching culture.
3.Embracing a holistic approach to wellness, nurturing healthy minds, bodies, and lives.
4.Building strong, resilient teams to support the evolving needs of our community.
5.Ensuring alignment of values and purpose throughout the entire organization.
6.Supporting those we serve and their families to live their lives to the fullest.
7.Establishing even stronger connections within our community, collaborating with like-minded partners to foster a space where everyone’s gifts and contributions are welcomed and celebrated.
8.To each member of the COR family, we extend our heartfelt thanks. Your contributions have been instrumental in the growth and success of our organization. We are immensely proud to have you as part of our family.

Stay safe and continue being the incredible individuals you are.

With gratitude,
