2016 was a year of hardship. In August my best friend, who happens to be my mom, fell ill with a very sudden and severe brain aneurysm. It late Sunday night when it happened, when I told Stephen Mannix he really helped soften the blow of a life changing situation by offering his condolences as well as bereavement leave that allowed me to be alongside my family during a difficult time. I would like to note that this happened the day of an office move we were undergoing as part of a merger within the Group of Companies.
Stephen and the others of Triovest Inc. continued to check in on a daily basis to see how I was doing, how my mom was, and the rest of my family. They offered support whenever I needed it and provided me with resources to help with my own grief.
My mom was in a coma for 3 weeks, followed by months of rehabilitation at Foothills Hospital. At this time, work had continued to be understanding throughout the hardship, even going as far as providing me with a parking spot to ease the trouble of going back and forth from work, home, and the hospital.
I was new to the Coril Group at the time, so to have such a sense of family in a workplace that I was still learning about made me believe that the company I was employed with was truly part of one big family. I can say this because not only did Triovest employees come together to offer support and condolences, but folks within other companies of the Coril Group reached out to me as well. I was overwhelmed with compassion, sincerity, and relief in knowing I was not alone.
Thank you Coril Group for being such a large part of my life as well as the lives of so many other Canadians!
