With the price of oil dropping every day and the Canadian dollar sinking with it, times are tough in Alberta. As the oil sector hemorrhages jobs, Calgarians of all walks of life hold their breath, hoping they won’t be next to be handed a pink slip.
Luckily, the construction business is still going strong as companies take advantage of the low dollar and continue to build new buildings, particularly multi-family residential high rises. When companies need the labour to complete these projects, they turn to qualified construction service companies like Matrix Labour Leasing. Matrix is known for being leaders who are changing the face of the construction industry. A full 97% of all Matrix employees are salaried, not contractors. They receive a variety of important benefits including medical and dental benefits, workforce training and RRSP contributions. This is because we believe that any company’s most important asset is its employees. To help foster a relationship built on trust, Matrix always acts with integrity, honesty and candor and we never sacrifice workplace safety or cut corners.
To help ensure our employees invest in themselves and to stay safe on the worksite, we offer a variety of on-site safety training courses as well as a partial tuition reimbursement program through the Merit Contractors Association. This partial tuition refund, as well as ample opportunities for advancement, means that Matrix employees have careers, not just jobs. By improving employee’s knowledge of their chosen trade and worksite safety practices, we are able to help our employees be the best they can be. This, in turn, allows us to benefit from their increased knowledge, offering the best construction services to our clients.
