Training & Development
At Strathmore, we believe that education is essential for our team members' professional and personal growth.
We are passionate about education at Strathmore because it allows our team members to expand on their existing skills and to learn new ones.
Extra training also helps people feel challenged, motivated, and ready to try new things.
Having happier, more engaged team members also means they stay with our company longer.
We have many team members who've been with us for 5-10 years, and some who have been with us for 20+ years.
That, to us, is true success.
Wages and IncreasesWe pay well. And in keeping with our value of being proactive, we review the performance of our team members every year, or when they make significant personal improvements.
OvertimeIn Canada, it is mandatory to pay overtime for all time worked over 40 hours. Many landscaping companies don't do this, but we do. We also don't bank overtime or pay cash. Our team members are paid properly - as per the law - which means we pay time and a half (1.5 times) the hourly salary for over 40 hours during each pay period.
Paid Time OffWe offer paid time-off that for all team members, both seasonal and permanent. Even in the summer: all our team members get one week off. The money in the account belongs to you as soon as you accrue it. You earned it.
RRSP PlanWe encourage our team to prepare for retirement. Strathmore will match 50% of contributions (to a maximum) for eligible team members, allowing contributors to save pre-tax dollars towards their retirement. You are making an investment in us, so we are making an investment in and for you.
Medical BenefitsWe offer medical, para-medical and dental plans to eligible team members. This means you can enjoy a massage to work out the kinks after a long day of work.
Long Term DisabilityEligible team members can enroll in long-term disability plans that can help protect them if they develop a disability and can’t work for an extended period.
Life InsuranceEligible team members can receive life insurance in a coverage amount equal to their annual salary.
