MIDIS-COOP

An opportunity to get together and learn more about the univers of cooperation.

Since 1995, employees at the headquarters in Montreal are invited four times a year to come and share a collective meal while at the same time sharing information about the business situation of La Coop fédérée, international cooperation as well as cooperative ethics. We believe this to be important so our employees better understand our distinctive nature as a cooperative and the dimensions of our enterprise.

Our Midis-Coop aim to be open, appealing and audacious. Last year, returning from a cooperative mission to India, a participant talked to employees about his adventure who were offered…a buffet of Indian cuisine! Moreover, during Cooperation Week, we presented our approach to business ethics…and ended up with some 200 of the employees present, discussing in pairs, the values of the enterprise! We also had the opportunity to present other cooperatives that are members of La Coop fédérée, such as SOCODEVI, Co-operators, Desjardins…a world to discover!

The Midis-Coop are definitely a great opportunity for employees to find themselves in a relaxed environment to exchange ideas as they take the time to set the daily routine aside. The educational content in Midis-Coop also helps them to discover the different facets of La Coop fédérée, to continue their own development and to better appreciate the pertinence of the cooperative business model.

Together, along with the great global cooperative movement, La Coop fédérée is actively building a better world.
