A Great Work Place Thanks to Our People
The past twelve months have been busy times for Urban Systems, with new offices opening in Courtenay, Winnipeg and most recently Fort McMurray, not to mention a move to a new space in Surrey with Calgary to follow suit this summer. We’ve also been continually adding great people to our team who bring with them creativity and enthusiasm for our work supporting our vibrant communities.
We are thankful for the many people that make up our collaborative teams, so it was wonderful to learn that for the 13th consecutive year, Urban Systems has been named in the top 50 of the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada’s “Best Workplaces in Canada – Medium.” Company leaders Martin Bell and Steve Frith recognize that this achievement is a result of the people across all our offices who actively make Urban Systems a great place to come to work each day. People who are passionate and engaged in what they do and are genuinely focused on bringing a spirit of service to every community we have the privilege to work alongside.
We’ll be the first to admit we’re not perfect, and that it’s important to keep evolving to find new ways to make each day a little brighter. Staying open to new ideas and realizing that we don’t always have the answers makes it easier to be present and ready for new challenges.
“We are very grateful to everyone at Urban Systems for their constant commitment and look forward to what we will build together in 2018 and beyond,” Martin and Steve.
