Administrative Assistant in Guelph, ON
Excellent employment opportunity. I have worked for large companies where you are just a number, that is definitely not the case here.My day starts at 8 am and goes to 5 pm with an hour for lunch.I am part of a very professional front office team, who greets staff and visitors entering our office. We work in a fast paced environment taking care of folks to ensure that the company runs smoothly. The people who make up this company are intelligent and passionate about what they do. Employees work hard, but we also play hard and are encouraged to recharge our batteries when off.GM BluePlan is constantly growing and everyone works hard to support our clients, consultants and fellow employees. There is a great vibe of interest in one another and caring within our lunch room.Everyone is approachable and helpful in working from day to day. There is opportunity for growth and active learning. Teambuilding is excellent. During non covid times, I have participated in many barbeques, special breakfasts/luncheons/dinners, golf tournaments, axe throwing, Storm Games, skating parties, specialized training, lunch and learns and an excellent annual Christmas party where all offices come together to celebrate. Work-life balance is respected and flexibility is key to its success. Family expansions are celebrated and child care is important and taken into consideration. The company takes care of it's employees and their families. I have also learned a great deal about what Engineering Consulting means and the various teams that work together. I know that l management cares about everyone's success and actively listens to the employees, when employees communicate their thoughts.With a recent family difficult time, my company fully supported me throughout. It was a great feeling to know that my team had my back.I am proud to work here and plan to stay for many years to come. There is a great mix of backgrounds: some here for over 40 years and others fresh out of school who are technology wizards. Individually we are smart, but collectively we are brilliant.The hardest part of the job is also the most enjoyable, being part of a fast paced, expanding and interesting company. You definitely get what you give and if you work hard and remain open to change, you will be rewarded.
