The month of June is off to an exceptional start at Sigma Systems. Not only are our employees increasing their physical activity by participating in a little bit of healthy global competition (read more about this in my first blog), we also learned on Monday, June 1st that Birch Hill Equity Partners had made a significant investment in Sigma Systems to help fund our continued growth plans. Earlier this week, our employees all over the world were treated to a special edition of Town Hall. During the meeting, our CEO and Birch Hill partners shared the special news and provided everyone with detailed information around the investment. A chunk of time was set aside for our employees to ask any questions they had around the investment as it is very important to our leaders to ensure everyone felt well informed. The Town Hall was closed with the words “Opportunity is Knocking. Buckle Your Seatbelts!” What a truly exciting time to be a member of the Sigma team.
What’s on the agenda for next week? Our company understands the importance of giving back and helping those in need. We have a strong partnership with Free the Children and have raised thousands to help support this organization’s initiatives over the years. We also think it is important to support programs to help our local community. As this is the case, we have a team of employees in our Toronto office gearing up to participate in a charitable fun run, The Rat Race for United Way taking place in the downtown core. As Team Captain for the group, I am so proud of everyone who is taking part. Our group consists of both seasoned runners and some who have never ran before. I have had the pleasure of watching the experts share exercise tips with the newbies, and I am confident everyone will complete the race with a big smile on their face. I’m truly lucky to be working in an organization where team work (both in and outside the office) is highly valued and appreciated. Stay tuned for an update and pictures of the race in my next blog!
