Tridel – Employer Description
Who We Are
To inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.
How do you describe what your company does to a new or potential employee?
We are a reflection of the beautiful diverse city of Toronto, where we build. People often only think of us as a construction company. We’re about a lot more than a hammer and nails. We have hundreds of unique roles, a family of brands and endless opportunities where creative, engaged people make this ‘more than a job.’ It’s their passion.
How does your company live your values?
Our Take Action Team is where employee passion meets our Company’s values. This team is an employee-led powerhouse group that promotes team-building and cohesion and is key to implementing events and initiatives both within the organization and in the community. Many of these planned events contribute meaningfully in the communities where we build, and beyond. Over the past year, 120 employees across the organization have volunteered 600 hours of their time to over 35 impactful events led by Tridel Take Action across the City of Toronto.
How would you describe your culture?
Happy employees make happy customers. You do your best work when you’re having fun. Whether it’s community events, celebrating co-workers or fostering work relationships and teams, we have a culture that is fast, friendly and fun. We’re a great place to work.
Our People & Culture Advisory Group was established to enhance our best place to work culture for our employees, preserving the aspects of our culture that make us great, while evolving it so we are competitive. They ensure that the corporate values instilled by our founder, Jack DelZotto, are maintained across the Company while continuing to create a positive experience for our employees. With representatives from diverse teams, they give voice for what’s important to our employees and guide the development of a cohesive and healthy culture within Tridel.
