Rubidium in the Community
At Rubidium Environmental, our clients come first. We strive to complete projects with ingenuity and integrity, providing precision solutions that might otherwise get overlooked. Much like the element the company was named after, Rubidium, our team reacts quickly to the needs of our valued clients. Our clients are important to those of us at Rubidium Environmental, however another incredibly important factor in our process, often forgotten by other engineering consultants, is the community. Rubidium Environmental is proud to be a member of the Burlington area and is involved in initiatives that impact the local area of Burlington, as well as opportunities across the province.
Since first starting up as a company, Rubidium Environmental has hired an Environmental Engineering Co-op student annually from the University of Guelph. I am the fourth student in what I know will be a long-standing relationship between Rubidium Environmental and the University of Guelph. Over the past eight months that I have spent at Rubidium I have worked with some of the most patient, knowledgeable and caring people I have met in my Co-op positions. They have encouraged me to become more confident in my abilities and how to put our client’s needs before our own in order to complete projects in a timely manner. This opportunity to work alongside them has helped guide me in making future career decisions and I am confident their continued support of University of Guelph students will provide students with invaluable experience in the Environmental Consulting world.
Every few months, a group of dedicated Rubidium employees makes the trip to the local donor centre where they donate blood that could very likely help make a positive change in someone’s life. Rubidium sees the importance in these regular donation trips because like so many other people across Canada, many of our own lives have been affected positively by similar blood donations. In November 2018, Rubidium was presented with a certificate commending the team for their commitment to save lives, having donated enough blood for one leukemia patient. This is something that Rubidium is proud of and has hung the certificate in the office to remind us of our commitment to improve lives.
Rubidium Environmental is a engineering firm based out of Burlington, Ontario and is proudly Canadian. We understand the importance of supporting local businesses, because we are one ourselves. Rubidium’s commitment to support local businesses and initiatives is evident in our everyday actions. In their personal time, many Rubidium Environmental employees can be seen around the community organizing and participating in events that support causes near and dear to their hearts. On a business scale, we believe it is the small things added together that count. Lunch-n-learns are catered by local, family-run businesses with delicious, fresh food; while presenters are local entrepreneurs working to make a difference in the world and their community. In addition, teambuilding activities and excursions are spent at local businesses, such as orchards, local restaurants or nearby escape rooms.
Rubidium Environmental is always looking for new ways to get involved in the community. If you believe you have an event or activity in which we could participate, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
