The Reasons Behind Taurus’ Success

The very first thing we attribute our success to is our highly trained team, which brings with it a over 80+ years of management experience in the Alberta, Fort Saskatchewan, and Edmonton construction industry. Without them, we wouldn’t be anywhere near where we are today. They have been the foundation for our continued growth, success, and the masterminds behind the company culture that we’re so proud of. Taurus’ company culture has been the backbone of our team, allowing us to be flexible during the hard times, and effective when project timelines are tight. We put our entire focus on developing our team and making sure that they keep the following three things front and centre.

1) Focusing on the Team – Our first focus is safety and health of the Taurus team, the community, and the environment. From the very conception of Taurus, keeping our team safe has been our #1 priority. It is our belief that the root of safety comes from two things: a collective responsibility based on teamwork and constant, world-class training. To us, collective responsibility means that every member of our team looks out for one another and keeps each other in check. Everyone takes it upon themselves to make sure work is being done in the right way.

2) Everyday Innovation – We are a company that allows the free flow of communication between our on-the-ground staff and management. Our employees are all encouraged to come up with and share any idea that they might have that might improve our day-to-day operations. After all, they’re the ones in the field who have first hand knowlege of the safest, most practical way to get things done. We want to empower our people to constantly be improving in all areas, but especially in safety and quality.

3) Community Involvement – We wouldn’t be here today without the support of our primary community, Fort Saskatchewan. We’ve made it a corporate goal to support the development of this amazing town and make sure that kids and families get the support they need to grow up happy and healthy. We are extremely active in youth sports, as we believe that it teaches young people a great work ethic, a healthy competitive drive, and the social skills to be a happy and strong member of the community.

Hope this gives you a better understanding of why we have seen such tremendous success and why we believe we will continue seeing that success!
