Challenging our people

Good ideas can come from anywhere. As one of Canada’s Top 100 employers, we know that the creative, collaborative energy integral to our success comes from engaged people, no matter what their role in DIALOG. We are committed to continuous learning and educational programs, and training and mentoring are a key part of our culture. We’re proudly recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People (2019), one of Canada’s Greenest Employers (2019), and one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies (2019). We don’t believe in making people wade through a mound of policies and bureaucracy to get their jobs done, rather we believe in empowering people to make decisions that work. From amazing open concept, accessible offices to a flat organizational structure to a company-wide mandate to have fun, DIALOG, simply put, is a great place to work.

 

 

Aspire DIALOG
Aspire DIALOG

Aspire DIALOG is our annual firm-wide conversation about design. In local studios, two days are set aside for presentations that explore our work together. From there, each studio picks four reps to go to the national event and share with the entire firm (thanks, live streaming!) and a prestigious outside panel. The rotating host city always finds a way to make it their own.

See what Aspire’s all about.

Integrateducation
Integrateducation

Our award-winning education program has been designed to enhance the collaborative and integrated way we work, foster creativity and give our people the tools they need to constantly improve. The curriculum features a weekly workshop at each studio with internal and external speakers.
