Foire aux questions

More and more companies are switching to an alternative organizational model known as a bossless organizational structure. At Synertek, we prefer to call ourselves post-conventional. Becoming post-conventional is a long-term undertaking that we began a few years ago and that we will continue to pursue.
A post-conventional company is guided by the principles of responsibility and personal liberty. At Synertek, we feel that employees are autonomous and fully able to take the decisions necessary to accomplish their work. We’ve eschewed the traditional corporate hierarchy and opted to let teams self-manage. To achieve this, we adopted a management practice called Holacracy.

Holacracy is a management practice based on collective intelligence. Instead of fitting into a top-down structure, employees have one (or several) role(s). Roles evolve as the needs of the organization change. The roles are grouped in circles that constitute self-managed teams.

Syner-teams are self-managed. This means that decisions that impact a team are taken by the team members involved. For example, job interviews are conducted by the team members concerned. HR deals with coordination and administrative tasks to support the teams throughout the process.

You only need to want to learn and to be motivated to work in a self-managed team. At the very beginning, it might be intimidating to perform a variety of tasks. This is why Synertek has a supportive HR team whose purpose it is to help Syner-teams develop their self-management skills.

Solid communication between individuals is key. Every staff member takes the two-day nonviolent communication workshop in order to develop effective communication skills. 

The standard day shift is from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Thursday, and from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays. The evening shift is from 4:45 p.m. to 3:15 a.m., Monday to Thursday.

We have put several measures in place to support the work–family balance. Employees are entitled to paid personal leaves. They also have access to a carte des horaires. The carte des horaires includes several alternative shift options that employees can work instead of the standard shift. These are two examples of ways we enforce a work—family balance.

Phased retirees are welcome at Synertek. Our phased retirement program allows employees to work a reduced number of hours per week (32 hours) or to work part-time.

We believe that physical activity and health are very important, and we encourage our employees to take care of their health. Our health and wellness program includes measures such as fresh fruits provided in the cafeteria for free, one hour of paid physical activity per week, a yoga class and aerobic training class given at work, access to an onsite gym with shower access, conferences on health matters such as nutrition, etc.

Synertek employs 70 employees, most of whom work the day shift. The size of Synertek, combined with employee-centric practices, make Synertek an inviting and friendly workplace. For example, each new employee is given a guided tour of the premises and is introduced to every staff member to learn what they do at the company.

We are part of an occupational safety group that gave us the highest ranking based on our ability to adhere to laws and successfully lead prevention projects. This shows how much effort we put into workplace safety and how we take employee security to heart. 

Synertek has established a pay equity system that ensures fair and equal compensation for all employees, and we offer competitive salaries in the sheet metal industry. Employees are positioned on a salary scale according to function and based on the market. Upon hiring, salary is determined by the self-managed team according to the candidate’s skills and experience.

Unless it is expressly stated in the job description (contract, internship, summer job), opportunities are permanent. We believe that hiring stable resources adds value to the company. We are convinced that it is best to keep all of our employees on staff—even during off-peak periods—so that we are braced to serve our clients promptly and efficiently.

Advancement opportunities lead to professional fulfillment in terms of individual interests and talents rather than in terms of the prestige associated with a position of power. Opportunities vary according to the ever-evolving company structure, which is continually changing to better serve the company’s needs. As such, an employee can develop skills in his or her field of interest, lead motivating projects, or sharpen his or her expertise.

There is a palpable culture of gratitude in the workplace every day. A talented employee will have opportunities to deepen his or her knowledge through training and to broaden his or her field of expertise by providing other teams with assistance.

We organize dozens of activities each year. We are closed on Friday afternoons, so this is the best time to enjoy activities with colleagues: bowling, pool, curling, karting, tag-ball, barbecue, etc. Some of our employees take part in team sports: softball leagues, soccer tournaments, Défi Entreprise, marathons for not-for-profit organizations, etc. We also hold our traditional annual summer and Christmas parties.

We are looking for employees who are ready to learn and braced for a challenge, who will integrate well with the team and share and uphold our corporate values.

To learn how Synertek is different, come meet us! Call us to plan a meeting or drop by for a tour of the premises. We’d be pleased to meet you!

There are plenty of reasons to work for us. Take your pick!
• A stable job in a safe environment
• A united, high-performing team that excels thanks to trust-based relationships
• A place where your strengths are valued and your talents are recognized
• An organization where self-managed teams give rise to creativity and personal and professional fulfillment.
