Engineering services is not a technical mechanical thing as some people think. You are trying to solve human problems not technical problems, such as providing clean drinking water to communities that might have had that luxury.
“By treating people with respect and listening to what they really need instead of what you think they need, really goes a long way. Burnside is guided by this philosophy not only with our coop students but also with our full time employees and our clients.”
“If you treat that coop student with as much respect as you would your supervisor or your boss that person is going to formulate a positive opinion about Burnside.”
Learning not only the technical side of business, but also the personal side of business is fundamental to the culture at Burnside.
Burnside is respect.
