July 11, 2022 – Montreal, QC Today, the Montreal-based software company, Mediaclip Inc., was mentioned in a prominent Quebec newspaper to underline its unique new strategy to support its current employees and attract new talent. La Presse, a French publication in Quebec, praised the company when it learned that the CEO had purchased a cottage in the forestry sector of Saint-Gérard-des-Laurentides in Shawinigan for all employees, for telecommuting or weekends with the family.
For her part, Marion Duchesne, CEO and Founder of Mediaclip Inc., wanted to show that in her company, work-life balance (or simply life-life balance) is important.
During the pandemic, she noticed that many employees spent their workdays alone in their apartments. Or worse: stuck with two or three roommates in undersized units.
"Some workers who already had access to a cottage took advantage of it. Others went to work down south, in British Columbia... Everyone was kind of spread out. I thought it was sad," she remarked.
So, Marion came up with the idea of providing them with a little piece of nature in which to work, relax, and reconnect with colleagues or family.
