Awards, Events, Incentives

At Student Works, we believe in rewarding people for hitting both short and long term goals. We have both a District Manager and company sponsored prizes, events and incentives.

Our first big event is our Annual Award Ceremony and Boat Cruise in Vancouver on the Labour Day long weekend. Our second big event is an incentive trip to Mexico for those people who have hit a certain production targets. Over one third of our operators win the week in Mexico.

I’m Not In This By Myself

Went to the first payroll event and talked with other rookies and realized, we’re all going through the same thing, I’m not in this by myself. Suggests to go to the payroll events and make friends with other operators.
