In recognition of the Corporation’s commitment to fostering work/life balance 

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, December 23, 2021 – MONARCH MINING CORPORATION (“Monarch” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: GBAR) (OTCQX: GBARF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the accreditation process and been officially granted the Concilivi Seal by the Concilivi decision committee, for its work-life balance (“WLB”) best practices.

Monarch, a supportive organization

Monarch launched the process of obtaining the Concilivi Seal in September 2021. Over the past few months, the Corporation has developed a workforce profile and consulted its employees with a view to developing a charter of new and enhanced measures for ensuring work-life balance. Meeting its employees’ real needs is a must for Monarch, and obtaining the Concilivi Seal was key to retaining staff and raising the Corporation’s profile in the job market.

“Monarch management cares about the well-being of its employees and their families and is committed to making this process a success,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and CEO of Monarch. “We started this initiative by creating an in-house work-life balance committee and encouraging employee ownership of the plan to earn the Concilivi Seal. This is a collective effort that takes into account specific issues associated with different work realities, and today we are proud to offer our employees a charter that supports flexible work arrangements. Our goal is to maintain effective communication with our employees and regularly assess their satisfaction with our WLB measures, aiming for continuous improvement in our employee relations, for everyone’s benefit.”
