What does it mean to be a top employer?

“It means we invest in providing a work environment that supports and encourages our people to contribute their best,” says GMS President Mark MacLeod. “We’re a purpose driven company and in my first six months on the job I’ve learned that many people work here because they want to be part of that purpose – to give back to our communities in a meaningful way. 

“At the same time, staff appreciate that we are here to provide value to our customers and they work hard to make sure we deliver. It all adds up to a workplace culture where people want to help each other and have fun while doing it. Very few (if any) are simply “going through the motions” – everyone loves what the company is trying to do and how we’re trying to do it, and it is a very rewarding experience to watch these people learn and grow while we’re changing. We owe it to our staff to provide them opportunities to stretch and develop their skills – not only for GMS, but for themselves as leaders and contributors.”
