Molson Coors honorée pour ses 25 ans d’appui à la Soirée des lauréats montréalais

 Photo 015 

Débutons par le “clou de la soirée”, Charles Hamelin, patineur de vitesse en courte piste, remporte la catégorie la plus attendue de la soirée, soit celle de l’athlète par excellence de l’année … entouré des deux co-présidents d’honneur, Réjean Houle (Ancien Canadien et président de l’Association des Anciens Canadiens) et Geoff Molson (membre de la 7e génération de la Famille Molson et membre du Conseil d’administration de Molson Coors)

C’est au Chalet du Mont-Royal que s’est déroulée la Soirée des lauréats montréalais où un vibrant hommage était rendu à Molson Coors pour son implication depuis les tout débuts, soit 25 ans! Geoff Molson s’est fait un honneur d’accepter ce prix au nom de Molson Coors … difficile de trouver meilleur ambassadeur!

Une présentation spéciale a été rendue à M. Bernard Trottier (qui ne connaît pas Bernard Trottier – cet homme qui a appuyé de nombreux athlètes, qu’ils soient d’espoir ou d’élite, tout au long de sa vie!). Bernard est entouré de Richard DeCarufel, un homme généreux et impliqué auprès des athlètes et des personnes en difficulté, et de Richard Morency du Casino de Montréal.

Nous avons appris que l’Hommage Bernard Trottier serait désormais décerné sur une base annuelle à un “Bâtisseur” qui aura fait sa marque! Quelle merveilleuse idée!

Bravo à la Commission sportive Montréal Concordia qui travaille très fort à chaque année pour souligner l’engagement et la passion d’une foule de personnes du monde sportif, qu’il s’agisse d’associations sportives, de bénévoles, d’officiels, d’athlètes, etc.

Nous avons passé une super soirée … à l’an prochain!

proud of “Our Brew” culture…

Top Ten Most Admired Culture

Today we’re reported in the National Post as one of Canada’s Top Ten Cultures in the Central Canada region. Wohoo ! The Waterstone Human Capital recognition program is certainly something that each and every employee of Molson Coors in Canada can be proud of.  Some may think that a beer company should naturally have a great culture…after all…it’s beer…and in Canada beer plays a big part in culture. However, great cultures are built by the people that live and work in the company and I can certainly say that we have very proud and engaged people working at Molson Coors Canada. After brewing for 224 years in Canada, we remain committed to the greater community. We have continued commitment to volunteerism and we match donations of our employees to charities and not for profit organizations.

We encourage people to speak their mind and tell us what they think and feel about our business and the place they work. We also have a great series of people development progams including a Molson Beer Academy (MBA) for new people joining our team.

We had a great year supporting the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games as an official supplier of beer where we had an opportunity to participate in the torch relay sponsored by RBC and Coke and a special Molson Canadian/Molson Export Fund a Champion program where employees and Molson Coors supported 10 Olympic/Paralympic athletes in their pursuit of the games.

These are just a few examples of what makes Molson Coors a great place to work. I hope you enjoy our story. We’d love to hear from you too.  Cheers @MolsonFerg

Cheers to the Top 100 Winners from Molson Coors Canada

We are so honoured to be selected one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers!  We are among many great companies and we’d like to propose a toast to all of the winners!

It’s really a privilege to write this blog post on behalf of our 3000+ employees across the country at Molson Coors Canada.   We’re all so proud to work for North America’s oldest brewing company!

From community commitment (those who read this blog regularly will know that giving back to the community “proud to play our part” is deeply rooted at Molson Coors) to a portfolio of extraordinary brands, Molson Coors Canada is truly fueled by our employees – the “beer champions”, the people who make this company who it is today, 224 years strong.

I’ve been working at Molson Coors Canada for three years come January, and from day one as an intern to now, the smile on my face and pride I feel when I tell people where I work remains the same. Our people…our events…the way we interact with our beer drinkers who love our products… I mean really, what could be better than working for a company that can connect Canadians over a beer!?  How great is that? J

Again, thank you to Canada’s Top 100 Employers and congratulations to the Top 100 Winners!  Raising a pint to you all.

Cheers.

Molson Coors Moncton Brewery Wins Green Award

Molson Moncton

Molson Coors Moncton Brewery

It is with the utmost pleasure that I blog about another award Molson Coors has received! Our Moncton brewery applied for the Moncton Industrial Park Association Green Award, and won! Gary Cook, Chief  Power Engineer, sent in the application on behalf of the folks at the Moncton brewery.  The application explained all of the “go green” initiatives and exemplary teamwork at the plant in order to achieve these green goals.

Peter Belliveau from the Moncton Industrial Parks Association was at the brewery on Tuesday, September 28th to present an engraved plaque and cash prize to Gary Cook. There was also  a BBQ for the entire team funded by the award from the Industrial Parks Association today…we like the sound of that!

As highlighted by Gary, one of the biggest initiatives to be environmentally responsible was to set reduction targets for all plant utilities.  Since 2008, Moncton has been achieving these reductions…check out these awesome percentages:

1. Electricity 32%
2. Water 36%
3. Natural gas 33%
4. Co2 63%

To ensure that the brewery is making environmentally friendly choices, an annual external environmental audit is conducted. All the glass used at the plant is recycled from the redemption centre, all waste glass is crushed, and all cardboard is baled and recycled. These are just some of the examples of how the brewery vows to be environmentally friendly, and proudly play their part to be a leader in environmental sustainability.

This is another proud moment in our 224 year history of brewing Canada’s favourite beers.  Cheers to the team in Moncton, what an honourable and exciting achievement!
