PharmaCentra and Concentra Solutions celebrate Canada Day in Georgia
Cultural festivities observed in both countries promote company unity
Americus, GA and Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada — July 6, 2016
PharmaCentra and Concentra Solutions employees celebrated Canada Day at their Americas, Georgia operations center. The purpose behind observing Canada Day was to develop a stronger relationship with the Concentra Solutions staff located in Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada. By exploring each other’s cultures and history, employees were able to cultivate deep-rooted connections in both locations.
Hosting Canada Day at the Americus operations center served as an icebreaker between the American and Canadian colleagues. Though employees work remotely, they exchange daily emails, telephone calls, virtual meetings, conference calls, etc.
Many employees wore the color red to symbolize Canada’s national maple leaf flag. Throughout the day, interesting historical and fun facts about Canada were shared with employees via the companies’ intranet news feeds. One particularly interesting fact revealed was that the University of New Brunswick and the University of Georgia were both founded in 1785, placing them among the oldest North American universities.
Gary Rounsaville, HR intern and champion of the cross-cultural observance idea, said, “I believe the exchange of knowledge and getting to know each other’s culture will bring a better union to both facilities by enhancing the way we interact and communicate with one another.”
