Our People Our Success
FirstService believes an entrepreneurial work environment fosters the highest standards of performance and the greatest mutual benefits for our employees and their families.
Our divisions are led by strong management teams who have an ownership stake in the success of their enterprise and a depth of experience as market leaders. Our success is guided by our values: deliver what you promise; value integrity and commitment; and be open-minded to possibilities. We are proud of our people, our reputation and the many long-term relationships we have with clients and suppliers throughout our organization.
FirstService employees are encouraged to be the very best at what they do. They accomplish this by providing excellence in client service in a team-oriented workplace where ethics and commitment to quality are priorities.
Great people are the fundamental asset of any successful organization. As an employer of choice, we continually seek to balance the needs of our people with the requirements of our valued clients. We could not provide the quality of service we do without the support of long-term, dedicated employees.
FirstService is committed to providing our employees with the training and resources they need to enjoy satisfying jobs and advance their careers. We have a responsibility to provide growth and fulfillment for our people as they carry out their responsibilities. We take a long-term view to developing talent and encourage career planning at all levels.
We develop talent by providing sufficient resources, rewards and encouragement to foster learning and career development within our companies. As a result, we have high performance expectations for our people. In return, our people receive compensation and benefits that are competitive for the industries and regions within which they work.
Our approach to people development is based on two complementary goals:
- To build individual professional advancement, in line with personal aspirations, and corresponding to proven skills and performance; and
- To satisfy our personnel requirements, both in the short and long term, as a function of customer needs and resources.
In order to implement the principles indicated above, two basic professional attitudes are essential: receptiveness and dialogue. We ask all our people demonstrate these attitudes in their everyday work.
Discrimination in the Workplace
FirstService and its subsidiary companies will not tolerate discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, age, sex, sexual orientation, language, religion, disability, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, veteran status, or any other legally-protected status.
