All Tasks is my business. I started it up in the summer of 2007 because I believed my strong administrative background would allow me to make a great service business that would be of value to small business owners in Calgary. In running my business over these ten years I’ve learned just what the numbers are saying, and used that information to make changes that have impacted the bottom line significantly. This experience I have with thriving (or not) while running the business has informed my passion for being a resource and removing road blocks for our customers’ own success in their businesses. Knowing that we make a real contribution to our customers, and that they count on the financial information in the work we do is what fires me up to show up every day!
When I was in search of a position, I wanted the opportunity to be useful, needed, have my brain access old knowledge and fill it with new. I more than lucked out when I interviewed with Dawn and she asked me to join the All Tasks’ team. Not only was I able to continue in my favourite roll as bookkeeper (it is my bread a butter, after all), it gave me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally! I don’t just enter the numbers as our clients give them to us, I am encouraged by Dawn to interact with them, look ahead with them, look at the little and big things that are going to assist our customer in growing their business. Dawn encourages us to discuss the best possible way to handle items that are not every day occurrences, pushing us to give answers and explain why. Dawn urges us to continue with our professional development, never to settle with what we know, but to continue to grow, so that we can offer even better value to our customers.
When I first came into All Tasks Services for my interview I had to wait at the conference table while Dawn finished up a phone call. I noticed behind me there was a big wall full of inspiring, positive and supportive quotes. I knew immediately I wanted to work here. Any company that made an effort to boost up their employees and clients was going to be a good fit for me. Since that day, I’ve experienced nothing but support, encouragement and trust. Dawn is always ready and willing to teach and encourages me in the development of my trade. I’ve not experienced such genuine concern for employees, as well as clients as I have experienced with All Tasks Services. It has given me the drive to want to be better and do better for our clients. It’s a pleasure coming in to work every day!
