Celebrating International Women’s Day 2018
- Thursday, March 8, 2018
Today is International Women’s Day, a global day of advocacy designed to celebrate women’s work and promote women’s rights.
At Trico, we pride ourselves on fostering an inclusive environment and championing women in the workplace. Women make up approximately half of our workforce, and over half of our executive and leadership team are women. Every day, our team strives to empower and challenge each other in our roles, which contributes to the amazing and unique culture at the company.
To mark the occasion, we are happy to share some experiences and insights from just a few of our many hardworking and driven ladies at Trico. Thank you for taking the time to share your stories!
“The best part about working at Trico is the culture that’s created here. It’s great feeling like I’m valued and part of a team that works well together. It makes me want to come into work every day.”
Diane Tran, Revenue Accountant
I am celebrating my 5 year anniversary with Trico on April 13th and I am grateful every day that I work for this wonderful company. I am very proud to tell my friends and family that I work for Trico and what I do. I am so lucky to do what I love and continue to learn from it every day. My favorite part of the job is building relationships with home owners. In my role, I spend 9 to 12 months with home owners and by the end of the build, they aren’t just home owners, they turn into great friends. My 2nd favorite part about working at Trico, is the people I work with; I have made great friends, and I’ve even started a Vespa club!
Carmen de Luca, Area Sales Manager
“Hillary Clinton once said, “Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.” This quote strongly resonates with me working at Trico, as every day I am surrounded by so many talented, strong, intelligent women in various roles, which proves to me that we are indeed superheroes!”
Heather Ramgoolam, Design Centre Estimator
“I love how Trico has made me feel important. It’s encouraging to see that the company recognizes how much each employee has the potential to contribute and grow, both professionally and personally. No idea or suggestion is too small and no question is “dumb”. Knowing that the executive team knows my name, having Wayne and Eleanor ask how my family is doing, seeing how the company investing in their staff…it all makes me want to give back.”
Karen Druskin, Assistant Controller
“I’m still relatively new to Trico Homes but what attracted me to the company was its culture. Trico homes is made up of a diverse group of people whom are very friendly and knowledgeable.”
Ramnit Grewal, Production Coordinator
“Trico gave me a chance when no one else would give me a second look. Four years later, I am still thankful every day for the support of the wonderful women who have lead my teams.”
