What kind of people do you hire?

Here are our five social standards that guide us in our mission and hiring process:

1 - Be Committed

We're all on the same team and we share a common vision for a better world. Building a better world takes time and energy, so we have to make commitments—to our colleagues, our clients, and our planet.

2 - Stay Curious

Our 9 to 5 doesn’t define who we are. But who we are defines our 9 to 5. We cultivate our passions, we seek discovery, and we stay open to the world. Keeping our fire alive is a full-time job.

3 - Think Bold

We don’t do average. Our ideas are meant to disrupt the status quo and challenge brands to dream about what they can become. Forget impossible, because to change the world, you have to be brave enough to believe you can.

4 - Speak Real

We like our stories real and our facts checked. No B.S. Our culture is inclusive and our collaborations based on integrity and honesty. Ego is not your amigo.

5 - Rise Together

Our collaboration exists above titles and our trust in one another is more than just task descriptions. We work together with more empathy than criticism, more vulnerability than ego, and more listening than talking. Because 1+1=3.

And what are the conditions?

We know we're not perfect, and we're humbly working to continually better ourselves. We also know actions speak louder than words, so here's an overview of our current equality, diversity & inclusion initiatives:

  • Comprehensive insurance coverage after your first 3 months of employment, including access to a virtual care platform for mental and physical health
  • Paid sick time, including mental health, wellness, and period days, no questions asked
  • Flexibility around childcare and family sick time
  • Flexibility around remote work, working hours, and vacation time
  • Additional benefits accrued with seniority, including the possibility of an unpaid leave or part-time schedule
  • Recognition of religious and cultural holidays
  • Recognition of Juneteeth and Martin Luther King Jr Day in allyship with Black Lives Matter
  • Company volunteer days
  • Mentorship opportunities for employees interested in leadership positions or other promotions, including women and BIPOC
  • A commitment to implement the demands contained in The Call for Equity, an open letter to Canadian Advertising and Marketing Industry Leaders to create a more equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist advertising and marketing industry
  • The creation of a justice, equality, diversity, and inclusion committee whose members have dedicated time in their work schedule to research, discuss, and implement best practices

In terms of perks, we have a beautiful office in downtown Montreal, but we also have an office in Tremblant to make sure people stay connected with nature. We have online yoga classes, a cash-back program for those who use public transportation, lunch-and-learn sessions every month, and one big offsite event every year with inspiring guest speakers and enriching activities. Oh and everyone gets Summer Fridays, which means our afternoons are meeting-free for an opportunity to take off early!

Most importantly, our team is what makes Republik different. What sets us apart is that we truly care about our employees and we walk the talk. (We actually won a prize for that!)

There's so much more, but you'll have to come see for yourself!
