Leader of Tomorrow:
Shannon Warren Company: Matrix Labour Leasing Ltd.
atrix Labour Leasing continues to turn the business cliché of “it’s all about people” into a solid, Calgary business success story. After all, “people” is what Matrix Labour Leasing does and “people” is what sets Matrix apart in Calgary’s construction industry. The formula is both simple but intense and challenging: the reliability (and often immediacy) of providing top quality and highly skilled trades and labour for virtually any client project. The Matrix relationship with Calgary construction clients is based on hardearned and solid trust, dedication, reliability and experience. Matrix crews can be seen working on the Southeast Stoney Trail (SEST), which is the largest single highway project in Alberta history. They are also active on the west extension of the LRT lines in Calgary’s southwest. Matrix carpenters and other skilled workers are at the massive East Village project and several other Calgary construction projects. Shannon Warren is the determined and energetic founder and president of Matrix Labour Leasing and his 11 years of respected and outstanding expertise in all aspects of the construction business have earned a solid Calgary reputation for Matrix Labour Leasing. “We hire nothing but the best as our crews have a wide range of skills to effectively handle and complete any task or project,” Warren says. “In the construction business, a crucial part of meeting client needs is being accessible at all times and consistently great communications. That’s a must and it’s one of the factors that makes Matrix different.” “Looking after our employees is the key to success,” he says. “This business is not about profit, it’s about people and quality. The copycats come and go but it is usually their lack of concern for employees that fails them.” From day one, Matrix has been involved in the community with charitable giving of time and money, forging long term relationships with Kids Cancer and the Fire Wagon Chuck Wagon (raising money for the children’s burn ward) and with Dreams Take Flight.
