Nordia Rouyn-Noranda collects $8,292 for La Ressource

Again this year, employees from our Rouyn-Noranda centre played a big role in supporting the 20th annual telethon of La Ressource pour personnes handicapées de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue/Nord-du-Québec. This year, a record number of 46 employees, volunteers and guests solicited donations between 12 pm and 6:30 pm. In total, $8,292 was collected. Prizes, snacks, donuts and coffee and a pizza dinner were offered to support our volunteer team throughout the day. A big congratulation to our three champion collectors of the day:

  • Leila Aloui: $1,150
  • Sylvie Pharand: $950
  • Bachir Lanez: $550

All in all, La Ressource raised over $503,158 to support its work. Many celebrities participated in the event and some even dropped by to encourage the Nordia volunteers.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success!

61 employees of Nordia Laval celebrate 5 years!

Last Monday, 61 employees of the Laval centre celebrated a milestone in their career at Nordia: 5 years of service! For the occasion, Azziza Guemache, an employee of the centre, had the difficult task of baking a cake in honor of her colleagues. "To please everyone, I decided to make a half vanilla, half red velvet cake," she said. "In terms of decorating the cake, I was inspired by the Nordia logo, by the various elements of a call centre as well as by the diversity that exists in Laval." The result was more than impressive: 20 kilos of pure delight!

Cheers to many more years!

2016 Nordia's employee appreciation BBQs : a complete success!

This year again, Nordia's traditional employee appreciation BBQs were held at centres across the country to thank employees for their passion, dedication and excellent work. Each event was different in its own way, with a wide range of fun activities like dunk tanks and pie throwing, prizes and off course amazing food! From hot dogs and hamburgers to brochettes and BBQ salmon, there was a great variety of food. Even though the weather did not always cooperate, nothing could dampen the smiles, good humor, fun and above all that great family spirit uniting all Nordia employees!

A big thank you goes out to all of the organizers and volunteers. We are already looking forward to next year!

The Nordia family is growing!

On August 1, Nordia acquired its new centre in Montreal, in the borough of Anjou. The new Montreal employees are already taking calls and are outbound sales and collection experts. And that's just the beginning! In order to accommodate more agents, the Montreal centre will move at the end of January 2017, in its brand new, completely renovated facilities, near the Olympic Village. The new centre will be bright, modern, well equipped and will feature a games room, a cafeteria and a bicycle parking.

The Montreal centre is dynamic, with a rich cultural background and a passion for winning and success. This addition to the Nordia family will provide a greater capacity to serve customers in Quebec and Ontario.
