Orbis in the Community
Orbis’s strong corporate culture revolves around a feeling of inclusion and support. Our team acts like a family, tight knit and supportive. Our support doesn’t end with our treatment of our co-workers. We’re dedicated to actively involving ourselves in the communities where we live and work. We contribute our time and resources to worthy causes that improve the quality of lives of our communities.
Orbis has supported AIESEC by hiring international interns (three from Colombia and one from Spain) in the fields of Engineering and Business Administration. With our corporate focus on developing work in South America, we felt partnering with AIESEC would be a great way to provide an opportunity for individuals to experience life in Canada. It’s also an opportunity for Orbis to build relationships with these individuals in hopes of them becoming future employees to establish and expand the Orbis network in their home countries.
Since the fall of 2011 Orbis has proudly sponsored Canadian Slopestyle snowboarder Molly Milligan as she works to reach her goal of making the Canadian national team and the 2014 Olympics. Orbis supports Molly in her travel expenses, allowing her to attend competitions and training programs.
