He is taking care of the people he’s working with, he will become a great leader.”

“I am grateful for receiving the employee of the year award. I thank the amazing team at Trillium for their incredible support. Without them, this achievement would not be possible. I also recognize the accomplishments of my fellow tradesmen and tradeswomen and supervisors, many of whom personally contributed to my success and professional growth. I look forward to another exciting year. Cheers to the #1 Staffing Agency!”  – Joe H.

Everyone wanted the best for Leon and couldn’t wait for him to come back to work because he was that great of an employee.
