The Edson Culture

Are you a fit for the Town of Edson?

If your professional values and disposition don’t match our cultural imperatives and we hire you anyway, we would be setting both you and our organization up for disappointment. Your skills, abilities, education and experience – as important as those things are – won’t make you successful here if our work cultures don’t match.

What’s OUR culture type?

We’re building a culture driven by:

Have we achieved all of this? Nope, but we’re getting there, and we’re on the same page. This is what we want.

What’s YOUR culture type?

If you are to be successful with the Town of Edson, you must be comfortable with discomfort, with asking and answering challenging questions, with rethinking processes, procedures, and even your own point of view, each and every week. You must have a healthy distrust for easy answers, a keen eye for team wins and a consistent bias for action.
