2013 was a great year for Macadamian as we were the proud recipients of a number of local and national Best Employer awards. It looks like 2014 is off to great start with receipt of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2014, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers from 2014, National Capital Region’s Top Employers for 2014, Canada’s Best Small and Medium Employers in Quebec for 2014, and 2014 Employees’ Choice Awards.
While these accolades are wonderful, we never take our employees’ engagement and job satisfaction for granted. Every year we implement new programs based on employees’ feedback. Nothing makes us happier than hearing our employees say they enjoy working at Macadamian.
Macadamians are passionate and devoted to building a unique, customer centric, creative and performance-oriented culture that enables both our customers and employees to be successful. Our CEO, Fred, together with the management team, embodies both the company culture and philosophy. We are intentional about the workplace we set in place for the team and whom we select to join us. We believe our best is talented employees so we invest our time and resources in our employees – our “secret sauce”. All of our employees have worked together to mold the company culture that we have and proudly embrace.
We encourage transparent, trustful and open communication, but more importantly, our corporate values are not only written in ink, we walk the talk. Employees are given accountabilities and ownership to make the right decisions and actions. We provide an environment that foster employees’ passion where they feel empowered and encouraged to do what they are good at and to develop their ideas. On a day-to-day basis, employees have the ability to continually learn, grow and work on a wide variety of prestigious customers’ projects. We celebrate our achievements and most of all we like to be nutty – doing things differently – outside the box.
What is successful for one company is not necessarily the same for others. It is important to understand what your “secret sauce” is and nurture and develop it into your own recipe for success.
