We have a cohesive and positive workforce of talented individuals who enjoy the fact that the work they do makes a difference. There are approximately one hundred permanent employees complemented by about the same number of casual and part-time staff.
Our official tag line, “Life is Better in Beaumont” also applies to our work environment. The majority of our municipal buildings are centrally located within minutes of amenities such as restaurants, banks, daycare and adjacent to the public library. Our employees enjoy a park like setting, free parking, free coffee & tea in comfortable lunchrooms, accessible walking and biking trails and proximity to the recreation centre and new Aqua-fit pool and fitness complex.
The Operations facility opened in 2010, which houses public works, planning and engineering. It is our newest spacious, modern building equipped with well planned work spaces, natural light and a patio for staff to enjoy.
We value communication and are continuously striving for improvement. We have quarterly staff meetings where our Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and Senior Managers update staff on events and preview upcoming projects. There are regular newsletters, memos and calendars distributed as well as annually, the CAO meets with each staff member individually to discuss items that are important to that employee. The Employee Relations Committee, made up of representatives from each department, serves as a collaborative partner to the Management team.
Employee professional and personal development is well supported through numerous training courses and wellness seminars as well as the provision of tuition reimbursement for part-time study related to your career plan.
We’re steadily growing larger but we do a lot together. There are monthly summer staff BBQs, a Christmas party, cookie exchanges, pot-lucks, a dynamic social committee, participation in Santa’s Elves and numerous recreational and social events throughout the year. Staff even have the opportunity to participate in lunch hour yoga and underwater hockey!
Our commitment to community involvement is supported by a paid Volunteer Day off where employees can assist with a Beaumont cultural, recreational, social or educational activity.
We value personal and family time and recognize that balance is an important element to a successful employee.
The Town offers a number of benefits to permanent full-time and permanent part-time employees. These premiums are 100% Employer paid.
