There may be no more valued praise than that which comes from an employee. When interviewed about his work experience with an award-winning Calgary social enterprise, Michael Jamieson highlights his manager as a key player in making the experience a positive one.
Though his words are few, the message is clear. When asked what energizes him most about his work at a Calgary social enterprise, the Vecova Bottle Depot, Shawn Sproule says it’s the people that he works with.
Invitation: Innoweave & enp-Alberta Social Enterprise Workshop, hosted by CCVO, Calgary, November 17th, 2015
Are you interested in learning more about social enterprise? Do you have an idea for a new social enterprise that you’d like to develop? Do you want to explore how it could help you achieve your mission and what it would take to launch?
For the first time in his working life, Caleb Bethune doesn’t dread waking up to another day of work, not since he began his career as a software tester with the Calgary-based social enterprise Meticulon. Meaghan Thompson, a fellow employee, shares a similar story of being inspired and energized by her work with Meticulon.
