Our culture is shaped, developed, and maintained by our most important asset: our people. We take pride in our work and have earned many awards for service excellence and customer satisfaction. We also follow a comprehensive workplace health and safety program to ensure our employees are given the best care and attention possible.
Acrodex supports clients in reaching their business goals. We strive to provide the highest standard of service, while leveraging the latest technology. This is echoed in our own internal practices as Acrodex provides its employees with the latest training, programs and devices needed to be innovative; enabling our employees to complete their jobs to the best of their abilities.
Health, Wellness and the Environment
We realize the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Acrodex employees are given the opportunity to participate in monthly Lunch & Learn sessions centered on important topics, including Personal Financial Planning, Managing Stress in the Workplace, Nutrition, Healthy Alternatives, and more. Acrodex also promotes personal well-being by offering employees Corporate Gym Membership discounts to YMCA and City of Edmonton fitness facilities.
Acrodex stresses eco-conscious practices. Because of this, Acrodex only partners with companies that align with our own ‘green’ standards. Any Acrodex staff member is able to join our Acrodex Green Team. Here, staff members can have an input in activities and initiatives involving the entire company—nationally. This team is responsible for raising important topics while discussing how both we as individuals and we as a company can become better advocates for the environment.
