TONY JOE & ASSOCIATES
“From a team leader standpoint, it’s really important to have a team that attracts people instead of constantly being on the lookout for new team members,” says Tony Joe of his Oak Bay-based team. One way Joe increases the appeal of his group is by becoming deeply involved in the Victoria community. “It’s turned out to be one of my primary jobs,” he says. While sitting on local boards concerned with hospice care and transition houses “don’t necessarily create leads or bring us business,” Joe says such efforts impress potential hires, who are then inspired to do their best work for a company they respect.
“That’s not something you can buy.”
