We think big and outside the box. We want to make it as easy as possible for our employees to get their job done so that they can go home to their families and enjoy themselves. We also want to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to help our employees’ work feel less like work.
We invest in you – we have a company profit share scheme, a medical benefits plan, a bonus scheme, birthday lunches, company retreats, and even pay for fun activities outside work.
We support you – we have clearly defined performance agreements, regular coaching and review meetings, personal development plans and access to books, courses, and resources.
We reward you – we know how important it is to say thank you and reward hard work, so we set goals quarterly, and regularly celebrate together as a team when we hit our targets.
We listen to you – our teams meet daily, weekly, and monthly, and we have regular employee engagement surveys and action groups in place, to always be improving.
Our head office is located in North Vancouver, a short walk from the SeaBus terminal at Lonsdale Quay, which is a great area for shopping, restaurants, and public transit. We enjoy fantastic waterfront views of downtown Vancouver and relaxing showers for those who like to keep fit during their lunch break!
