    Keep your doors open and continue listening to all departments, all people within the organization on what they have to say. This is why it is one of Canada's 50 Best well managed companies and continues to be. Collective communication, collaboration, teamwork between the departments helps to make each employee see their value in helping to make the company develop to what it can be so much faster. Keep in investing in your employees and your employee will invest in you.
