We’re Better Together  

The Stantec community unites approximately 22,000 employees working in over 350 locations across 6 continents. We care about the communities we serve—because they're our communities too. That's why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.

We're designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.

Purpose & Values

We put people first

People are at the heart of everything we do; they give our work purpose. That’s why we listen to and design for the distinct needs of our clients—and those who live and work in the communities we serve. It’s why we prioritise the safety of everyone our work touches. And it’s why we define fulfilling careers for our own people, helping them set and then surpass their individual goals.

We do what is right

We approach every project as a partnership because our work creates a lasting impact on our clients’ communities. We are accountable to these communities—to strengthening them and making them resilient for whatever the future may hold. Integrity guides what we do, which means that we make the right choice even when it’s the tough choice.

We are better together

When smart, passionate, creative people come together, real possibilities are unleashed. As our own community expands, we welcome everyone’s contributions—diverse perspectives create extraordinary results. We draw on our global network to build the right team for each project because when we work together, no problem is too large or complex.

We are driven to achieve

We believe that transformation—in our work and in ourselves—is truly possible. We’re defined by our entrepreneurial spirit and our unwavering pursuit of not only what’s next but also what’s best. Bringing imagination and determination to every challenge, we leave no angle unexplored. As a result, we deliver the excellence that propels communities to success.

Indigenous Relations & Partnerships

We’re always looking for ways to build stronger connections with communities, and that includes the way we work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We’ve partnered with Supply Nation, a leader that stimulates Indigenous entrepreneurship and business development. Meaningful engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and businesses, and a commitment to the prosperity of their communities, is essential to our promise to design with community in mind.

Leading with inclusion brings our work to the next level

At Stantec, we create opportunity by inviting, embracing, and celebrating differences. This goal remains at the heart of our efforts to champion inclusion and diversity throughout our organisation. To achieve that goal, we must continue to build an inclusive workplace that empowers and inspires—but also attracts and nurtures the very best talent from all over the world. Two examples of this are our partnerships with Australian Network on Disability (AND) and Job Support to support us advance the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of our business.  

Driving change

As a global company, we’re involved in external activities that promote diversity, inclusion, and equity in the broader marketplace. We provide scholarships to minority and Indigenous students and actively participate in community partnerships, finding opportunities to engage with and recruit women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous people, people of diverse ethnic origins, and people with disabilities. The business effect? An improved diversity pipeline leading to greater depth in our talent pool and in the industry at large.

Employee resource groups

Imagine a place where you can be yourself and talk about your challenges and experiences with people who know where you’re coming from—because they’ve been there. That’s an employee resource group (ERG). In an ERG, employees explore development opportunities and improve skills relevant to their business goals. Some of our current ERGs include Women@Stantec, Pride@Stantec, Reconciliations Action Plan (RAP Committee), and Persons with Disabilities@Stantec.

Create your own path

Design your career through our numerous advancement opportunities, including succession planning, professional development programs, continuing education programs, coaching, mentoring and professional association memberships. Whether you’re interested in managing a part of the business, specializing in project management, or developing your technical skills and becoming a subject-matter expert in your practice, we put people first and have the resources and world-renowned experts to get you on the right path.
