“Employee recognition leads to increased feelings of satisfaction and loyalty...I was truly impressed at the level of respect the team has for each other.  More importantly, the level of appreciation for what they all do on a daily basis is overwhelming…Omar is always looking to develop himself and his team. This is an exemplary example of putting together and successfully executing his vision for excellence,” said Denise Strong.

Over the years, our Where Services Matters team has identified cost savings through consolidation of services, implementing more cost effective complimentary service suppliers, service improvements and reduction of inventory.
