by   Melissa Alvares on 04.22.16

We are super excited to announce that Sparkrock is being recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada! This list, and related stories, appeared in a special national report on Friday April 22, 2016 in The Globe and Mail.

“At Sparkrock, we’re pleased, humbled and excited about being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Canada.” states Colin Dickinson, President of Sparkrock. “Corporate Culture is not about what’s written on a plaque on your wall. It’s about what’s demonstrated in the hundreds of decisions made by your colleagues every day. There’s an expression that has motivated me for years: 'character is what you do when no one is watching.' Our place among these other worthy recipients is a testament to the hard work, dedication – and yes, character – that our colleagues demonstrate every day for each other and for our customers who do some of the best work on the planet. It’s an honour to work with them, and it’s a ton of fun to come to work with such a great group of people.”
