Chief Executive Officer
Proud of What We Accomplished Together in 2022
As 2022 comes to a close, I want to reflect on our achievements, express my appreciation to our team for their contributions, and share our focus for the year ahead. I am proud of what we have accomplished together.
SAFETY FIRST, SAFETY ALWAYS
This mindset needs to be a way off life for TNDC to ensure everyone goes home safe. We have doubled down on our commitment to health and safety. We are enhancing our safety culture, performance and compliance, expanding our safety program, growing our safety team, and improving training and accountability.
EMPLOYER OF CHOICE
We conducted our first-ever employee survey to learn what TNDC was doing right and where it needed to improve. We listened to your feedback. We implemented a new Rewards and Recognition Program and wage increases, renewed focus on training and development, and enhanced communication to ensure employees are better informed, including numerous site visits by our Senior Leadership team and I to engage you personally.
INDIGENOUS PARTNER OF CHOICE
Working with tier 1 mining companies requires TNDC to have tier 1 finance, accounting and governance practices. We are improving our accounting processes (payables, receivables, payroll), enhancing our financial reporting transparency and improving the financial health of our organization.
TNDC’s goal is to be a trusted partner to our clients, delivering on client contracts safely, on time and budget, while performing quality, environmentally compliant work by qualified, reliable personnel and equipment. We are earning our client’s confidence, expanding our Operations team and improving our operational practices.
Growth and diversification are essential for long-term sustainability. We introduced a Partnership Management strategy to improve profitability, are growing the scope and capacity of Airport Services, and our Fibre Optics division is implementing a long-held vision to bring critical highspeed fibre optics into Tahltan Territory.
While we have made excellent progress in our priorities, change takes time. There is still much to accomplish to ensure a financially strong, sustainable and responsible Indigenous owned business.
Thank you for your continued hard work and loyalty to TNDC. Please look out for one another and stay safe over the holiday season. I wish you a happy, peaceful and safe Christmas and look forward to a successful 2023.
