What gets us fired up at EACOM
Once a month, we chat with one of our colleagues to see what keeps them fired up at EACOM
Why did you choose EACOM?
As I have a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and a Master’s in Public Relations, EACOM was the perfect fit for me.
What do you like about the industry?
I like the true camaraderie I see in the industry. Helping one another and sharing prevail, even though we are competitors. Especially during the pandemic—companies in our sector exchanged content and shared best practices
What is your favorite anecdote?
During the 45th anniversary celebration for our Val-d’Or sawmill, I was pleasantly surprised by the help and spontaneous collaboration from colleagues who contributed to the success of the event: an electrician made me a custom extension cord for an appliance and employees’ teenaged children volunteered at various booths. I love the sense of belonging in our sawmills, it’s like a real family!
Your favorite wood pun?
We’re not out of the woods yet
Wood fibre is everywhere! It’s impressive to know that cellulose is in cosmetics, medication, or even ice cream. Before working in the industry, I had no idea how many everyday products were made with it.
A word to the next generation
Don’t be afraid of the great outdoors, there’s limitless potential for growth! 🙂
