Our involvement as a Living Wage Employer is a small step to ensure all our employees are fairly compensated for their work with GCP.

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.
One of our core beliefs and values as a company is that work should lift a person out of poverty, and not leave them there. Given so, it was only befitting that we joined this movement and committed to paying a living wage to every employee we have, to champion it with others, and to raise awareness to the issue of needing a Living Wage for all.
Our business philosophy is ‘Putting People First’. Paying a living wage has been a part of our business. We feel it is good for business and good for the community.
Open Sesame is a progressive business that tries to promote social justice. How could it do that without treating its own employees properly? It would be impossible for Open Sesame to present the exhibitions, concerts, and other programs it offers without the talent and expertise of our staff. Recognizing the value of their labour seems like a good business decision as well as the right thing to do.
