Agency Culture

At Terra we strive to maintain an organizational culture that is a warm and welcoming environment for our participants, the greater community and our staff. This environment allows staff to perform their role in a flexible and creative manner, assists our participants in reaching their potential and helps the agency achieve its program and organizational strategic goals.

We value ongoing personal and professional learning and development. We learn through formal learning experiences, as well as experientially from each other, our participants and stakeholders. We endeavor to integrate that learning into our work on a continuous basis.

Each employee is treated with respect. We care about our employees and want to know about workplace successes, challenges and learnings to ensure they feel valued, supported and are given opportunities to grow, personally and professionally.

Our employees know that the things they do every day make a difference for our participants, our organization and our community!

Terra Code of Honour

The Code of Honour was developed in 2009 after a comprehensive process which included dialogue and the opportunity for all staff to participate in determining the Code of Honour. It was updated in 2012. The Code of Honour reflects how we work together, what we hold each other accountable for and our values as a staff team.

  • We believe in our mission. We can better serve our participants by always being aware of our purpose in everything we do.
  • We believe in respecting our diversity and celebrating it. Our differences can come together positively to strengthen our team as a whole.
  • We believe that each of us can choose our own attitude. By being positive and respectful we can create a healthy work environment and set a good example for our participants.
  • We believe in being supportive to each other. Terra is a team and a team member in need should always be supported and never be left behind.
  • We believe in supporting the communities we serve. In working collaboratively with other agencies, we can open ourselves up to new opportunities for programs, partnerships and possibilities to help our participants.
  • We believe in dealing with issues as they arise. Bringing forth conflicts in an open, honest and courteous manner will allow us to address them in a non-confrontational way so we can continue working towards the success of our organization.
  • We believe in being accountable. By taking responsibility for our mistakes and supporting colleagues through theirs, we can learn from them, move past them, and be successful.
  • We believe in celebrating successes and taking time to have fun! By committing to positivity in the workplace, we all can further enjoy the work we do.
