A sweet visit to Lindt chocolate

By July 9, 2010August 6th, 2019Uncategorized

Continuing on the recent theme of “sweet success,” Career Edge Organization paid a visit to Lindt & Sprungli Canada’s downtown Toronto head office. Lindt & Sprungli are behind some of the most delicious chocolates on the market and, judging by what we saw, the work environment is equally delicious.

First of all, chocolate was everywhere. At the front reception desk (where most organizations keep mints and business cards) are individually wrapped Lindor truffles.  Nothing says “Welcome!” like truffles. But what immediately stood out to us was the energy – everyone seemed genuinely happy to be there.

Lindt & Sprungli recently become a Host Employer to Career Edge Organization internships. They recently hired a Career Edge intern, Anitha, who is a recent York University graduate now working in their marketing department. Anitha has worked out so well that we decided to feature her and the host organization as “success stories” in our upcoming e-Newsletter, CareerBulletin.

It is clear that the key to this success story has been fit – Anitha’s values, personality and work habits are a perfect match with Lindt’s organizational culture. This idea of fit will be the central theme in our upcoming newsletter, set to go out next week.
