Stantec’s Creativity & Innovation Program
It all starts
with a good idea.
Stantec’s Creativity & Innovation (C&I) program
celebrates and encourages
creative and innovative thinking that benefits
our clients, communities, and company.
The C&I program helps us live our values and deliver
on our promise to design with community in mind.
Our $2 million annual Greenlight fund supports employee ideas
that benefit our clients, communities, and company. Half the
fund is dedicated to formal research and development (R&D) with
the remainder supporting ideas that fall outside of traditional R&D.
Employees submit ideas for adjudication and the
best ideas receive financial support.
Getting behind promising ideas
Our Publish & Speak program financially rewards employees
who demonstrate thought leadership by speaking at client-facing
conferences and events or publishing articles in client-facing
publications or technical journals.
Publish & Speak
Sharing ideas that work
with our clients and communities
Our $3 million annual Venture Fund helps employees
pursue unique market opportunities outside of normal
business development activities and budgets.
Supporting ideas for
expanding into new markets
We strive to bring creative and innovative thinking to all
our projects, large and small. For assignments that meet
our “Major Project” criteria, we have implemented a C&I
review as well as C&I workshops intended to bring fresh
thinking to the project.
Because big projects
need big ideas
