Company set to create 400 new jobs in Mississauga
If you're looking for a job this holiday season, you're in luck.
Radial, an omnichannel commerce provider, recently announced plans to create 400 positions for entry-level fulfillment centre workers in Mississauga in preparation for the holiday season.
Radial says the seasonal workers will be responsible for processing online orders, including picking, sorting, packing and shipping.
As far as virus protocol goes, Radial says that it will implement processes and technologies to ensure that employees are protected from the novel coronavirus. The company says it will implement automated temperature thermal screenings for anyone prior to entering every facility (visitors included), make adjustments to working layouts to enable and enforce social distancing, use Instant-Trace badges to remind and train new hires on social distancing best practices and utilize heightened hygiene and sanitation procedures across every site to reduce risk.
"The health and safety of our employees is Radial's number one priority. We've always prided ourselves on our people-first approach, and we've built a culture where coworkers feel like family. This close-knit community is part of what historically has made us so successful at achieving peak season goals for our clients. When demand increases, our people work together to rise to the challenge," said Eric Wohl, Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President, in a statement.
"Our people-first workplace has been tested since COVID-19 hit, and I am deeply proud of how we've evolved our working environment to keep our strong community values intact while deepening safety measures. At Radial, we know we all have a role to play in following safety precautions, and everyone looks out for each other so we help keep our workplaces and communities safe."
Radial says seasonal workers at the Mississauga location will enjoy benefits including competitive hourly wages and opportunities for overtime. Seasonal roles can also lead to further opportunities with the company down the line, Radial says.
According to the company, there will be opportunities for local residents who worked in industries impacted by the pandemic such as retail storefronts, restaurants, and hospitality to switch career paths and "leverage transferable skills within the fulfillment centres."
