At Blue Canopy, you will be joining a team of dedicated and intelligent professionals with a passion for excellence and a corporate understanding that success triggers reward. For instance, team awards honor group performance for exemplary work. When most companies wait until the end of the year's performance cycle to show their appreciation to stellar overachievers, Blue Canopy asks "Why wait?" Instead, Blue Canopy offers Spot Rewards to individuals shortly after the conclusion of their remarkable achievement. The truth is, we love to recognize your successes and share the celebration with the whole company by communicating both team and personal triumphs during corporate meetings, newsletters, and informal company updates. When you succeed, we all win!
