As we get ready to celebrate our 27th year in business, our success in helping organizations save energy continues to be dependent on our most important asset: our people. In the past year, our team has grown to over 40 staff, all of whom come to our company with different professional and cultural experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives.
Prism is happy to offer a workplace that embraces the uniqueness of each of our employees, and recognizes that diversity has strengthened our business and enabled us to better serve our clients.
- Many on our team bring expertise from around the globe, having lived in or studied in countries outside of Canada, and about half of employees speak at least two languages. The different perspectives and experiences of our staff help us to find solutions to complex problems and inform our holistic approach to energy management.
- Women make up about 40% of Prism’s total staff and about 25% of our Energy, Mechanical, Electrical, and PUMA teams. We recognize that there are still too many barriers to women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields and continue to work alongside our industry partners and professional organizations toward closing this gap. Over the last fifteen years, at Prism, the number of female employees has grown steadily with our business to stand at 17 strong today, with women represented on all of our teams and in all levels of our company.
- Prism has (and continues to) provide opportunities for co-op students and interns, with an appreciation for the innovation and new ideas that they bring to the table. Among Prism staff, there are a few who started out their careers as students or interns with the company and opted to return after graduation to be full time employees. We are similarly lucky to carry a depth of knowledge and experience on staff, with many decades of age diversity between employees.
We look forward to welcoming new ideas, perspectives, and voices in the coming years as we continue to work towards our shared vision of “saving you energy.”
