In professional consulting, and architecture in particular there has long been an unspoken system of underpaid or unpaid internships. This has the effect of creating a false economy for our profession, which undermines perception of the value of our work ot customers and often results in a race to the bottom on fees. In providing a better than living wage to all employees we are taking a stand in establishing fair value for work for people entering the industry and our customers.
Enviro-Stewards is an engineering company designed to benefit our Customers, Society and the Environment. Paying our staff, interns, and suppliers more than a living wage is consistent with our founding principles and our Certification as a B corporation.
Paying a living wage is the right thing to do, but also helps us attract and retain great employees.
One of our key values includes the promotions of social justice. We believe that all people should be treated fairly in all matters of life. One of the ways we can model that value is by ensuring just compensation for work that is under taken right here at our own organization.
The mission of our company is to support local businesses and local community. Our team members are a part of our community and paying a living wage is just one way we give back to our community. Living Wage Waterloo Region is a great initiative and we are proud to be a part of it.
