General Manager Scott Weller on helping employees develop a career path: We discuss career path during the recruitment process to see which direction they intend or aspire to go. We always discuss career goals during our annual performance reviews to make sure we stay on track.
Weller on staff diversification and attracting more women to the workplace: We are very in tune with our demographic audience. We stay active in as many community groups as possible. We do so with advertising, event sponsorship and networking. To attract female talent, we ensure our compensation plans are in line with all pay equity principles. We offer females all the same perks, etc., as we do for the males. We make sure that our facilities are also conducive to female employees.
Weller on the unusual methods developed to reward employees and show them they are valued: We do our best at making sure that employees are rewarded for their hard work. We provide fun activities to show our appreciation, including hosting barbecues, bowling nights and have a holiday retreat every other year. We focus on team building as much as we can.
