Prospect's 2020 Annual Review
An extraordinary year resulted in our staff pulling together and exceeding expectations. Our brand values were put to the test, and we showed that Innovation, Collaboration, Enthusiasm, Professionalism, and Drive aren’t just words in our employee handbook. They are exemplified by our staff every day.
Are the robots really coming for your job?
Technology is a source of innovation, revolution, and freedom. It’s hard to imagine a life without social media, search engines, and YouTube cat videos.
Is perfectionism the biggest barrier to excellence?
Everyone knows a perfectionist – someone who looks at their work and focuses on the smallest flaw rather than the excellence of the whole. It’s a valuable trait when it comes to cutting diamonds, tightrope walking, or neurosurgery. But in day to day work, perfectionism can be a barrier.
Why we're ecstatic that we didn't win the Calgary Chamber Resilient Business Award
On September 8th we received word that we were not chosen as a finalist in the Calgary Resilient Business Awards. We had entered in the category of RBC Resilient Business Award: SME. (For those of you not up on your acronyms, SME is “Small to Medium Enterprise.”)
If you’re a results-oriented donor, Prospect is a great option. We help Albertans go from relying on society to helping build society. In 2020 we placed 582 people in jobs, reducing social services costs by approximately $10 million and returning almost $2 million to Alberta in tax dollars.
