Inas Assaad, Senior Global Benefits Manager, Air Canada
Inas has been fortunate enough to work with Air Canada since July 1978 occupying various roles within Human Resources and more specifically Benefits and Benefits Administration since 1988. In her current role she is responsible for all Group Benefits Administration worldwide, this includes employee assistance programs and wellbeing initiates. She is supported by an amazing team, whose drive and dedication to their customers, their employees, is a source of tremendous pride.
Her journey into wellness started in 1992, when she was asked to join a core group of volunteers to manage Air Canada’s first onsite Gym and Fitness facility at the Dorval Base under the Air Canada Recreation Association banner. She was named Chairperson of ACRA Fitness and managed that activity up until July 2013. Participation in this activity fueled her interest in overall wellbeing and it has been one of her passions ever since. In May 2017 they successfully launched a wellbeing platform ‘Upgrade to a Better You’; which connects employees with the resources to help them achieve personal health and wellbeing.
When she is not at work, she loves to listen to music, going for long walks or heading to the gym.
