Creating a work environment conducive to innovation and the realization of one’s full potential is essential not only to ensure the company’s success, but also to attract the best talent in the industry. To play in the big leagues, it is imperative to cultivate a taste for performance and excellence.
When success and fun go hand in hand
Injecting a dose of fun into the workplace is the best way to cultivate a sense of belonging and togetherness. From the electric guitar wall to the espresso machines, from the electric vehicle charging stations to the indoor bike rack, not to mention the traditional pizza Fridays—work rhymes with pleasure at Effenco, where everything is designed to foster solidarity and a sense of community in a dynamic and productive atmosphere.
Effenco’s offices are located in the South-West, in the heart of Montreal, a vibrant neighbourhood near the Lachine Canal and major institutions of higher education.
Innovation: day in, day out | | Effenco has just launched a new, 100% electric solution that is poised to radically transform the vocational trucking sector by significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions in a highly polluting industry. This flexible and adaptable solution, offered at the same purchase price as diesel alternatives, pairs ultracapacitors with high-intensity wireless charging stations strategically positioned using the company’s artificial intelligence algorithms, enabling the optimization of on-board energy without sacrificing the vehicles’ vocation and performance. This latest innovation is a testament to the sheer scope of Effenco’s projects and its willingness to take on the toughest challenges.
