One Team

At Quadra,  we work together as one team to provide unique business solutions and services to our customers and suppliers. We care for each other and we know our success depends on the contribution of every single one of our colleagues. Our core values guide us in the way we do business and enable us to build solid relationships and partnerships.

People who work in a solid team environment have a satisfying feeling of contributing to something truly meaningful.  This is why we have been a member of Canada’s Best Small and Medium Employers since 2010.  Our employees are given an opportunity to provide feedback on a regular basis through surveys conducted as part of the BSME program.

Growing

Some employees have been with us for the entire 40 years we have been in business. Many have been with us for decades. Others have left and returned to Quadra. This truly says something about us – we are a great organization and truly value our employees. In turn, our employees truly feel they are part of a team, and part of a family.

Quadra has achieved continued significant growth over the last four decades.  As a result, we can offer challenging opportunities for talented and engaged people.  We are constantly looking for great people to join our family and contribute their special skills and experience to the achievements of our business objectives.

We want our employees to grow!  We encourage our employees to perform at their full potential and fulfill their career goals. For driven and determined individuals Quadra offers career advancement and professional development with an educational reimbursement policy that covers 100% of costs for all approved training, books, software, and other materials.  Managers support employees by engaging in regular career discussions, goal reviews, and performance evaluations.

Wellness

Wellness is an important part of Quadra’s culture. Our Wellness Vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of all Quadra employees’ lives. We have established a comprehensive Wellness Plan which encourages a work-life balance for all Quadra employees, and to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle.  The plan reimburses employees for fitness memberships, as well as provides health assessment tools and Employee Assistance Program support.

There is a Wellness Committee which is comprised of employees from each local branch.  The committee meets regularly to brainstorm and discuss implementing different activities and themes which support our wellness vision.  We host lunch and learn programs with topics such as nutrition, stress management, ergonomics, and more.  We hold inter-branch fitness contests, offer yoga and fitness classes at lunchtime, organize running and walking groups, and coordinate off-site group activities such as paddleboarding, hiking, kayaking, and rock climbing.

Quadra is fully committed to the safe & secure operations of its facilities for our employees and the communities we belong to. Safety is given top priority at Quadra, and the level of commitment is proven with our extensive safety programs for which we were awarded “Canada’s Safest Employer” in 2015.

Community Involvement

Quadra is proud to support numerous charitable organizations (approximately 40 Nationally). Each Quadra facility has an individual committee of volunteer employees which is empowered to support local organizations in their region.

In addition to financial donations, many employees dedicate their own time volunteering, participating in fundraising events, and helping to make a difference in their communities.  Respecting our environment, Quadra actively participates in annual ‘Earth Day’ events with a number of initiatives designed to promote awareness and environmentally responsible behavior among our team.  Such initiatives include: promoting the use of public transportation or alternate modes to commute to work, avoiding unnecessary printing of documents, and organizing teams are in each location to clean up garbage from all Quadra facilities and neighboring properties.
