“This recognition is truly humbling. I never would’ve done it without my ever-supportive colleagues and managers, as well as the company itself for investing in its employees’ growth. This is my third promotion since starting my career as a Roaming Building Operator on 2017 and I should say that one of the major factors that helped me succeed in the company is the Annual Continuing Education Allowance. Maximizing the use of the benefit allowed me to get the credentials that I need to thrive in my role and hone my skills to be an effective member of the Edmonton Operations Team. I’m looking forward to more years with GWLRA and I will always be proud to be a part of this family.” – Khen Cua

“I’m fortunate to work for a great company that has continuously given me new challenges and opportunities for advancement in my career, bolstered by leadership that has championed and nurtured that growth. I started at GWLRA in 2007 as an analyst. As our company has grown, I’ve learned during my time here that there is unlimited opportunity to grow professionally as well. I’m excited for the future at GWLRA.” – Adam Hasen

“GWLRA has assisted with my career development since I joined the organization as a Leasing Manager in 2018. I am grateful to work for an organization that recognizes its employees’ efforts by providing the opportunities for growth and career progression within.” - Shannon King

“I started over ten years ago as a summer student to support the busy leasing season and quickly discovered how much fun residential property management was! Shortly after I was moved into a permanent role and thanks to the incredible support from colleagues, moved to Community Manager, then Property Manager, and now Director. Not only has the company invested in my growth, but I have witnessed many others grow and advance within the organization. The company has evolved with many positive changes over the past several years and I look forward to what the future holds with GWLRA!” – Alicia Minard

“GWLRA has provided me with an opportunity to gain property management experience in office to go along with my 25 years in retail. I have been very fortunate to work with great people who have provided guidance for me to succeed and grow in my role, to be a better leader to my team and colleagues, encourage independence and empower me to make decisions. When looking at advancing my career, the steps were clearly defined in GWLRA’s Performance Management Competency matrix. I worked hard at accomplishing what was required to succeed and was rewarded with a promotion. I’ve also been fortunate with being chosen as a mentee in the mentorship program and really valued the experience. GWLRA is always striving for ways to improve their processes, encourage originality and innovation, look to understand what matters to both clients and employees, provide the best service to our tenants, and doing what’s right for them. I consider myself very lucky and proud to be part of GWLRA.” – Lisa Pegg
