Letter from the CEO

Taurus is relentless in learning from our own mistakes; however just as important, we learn from the mistakes of others. Over the years, through conducting client on-boarding interviews, clients have shed light on the failures of their past management teams. Although problems manifest differently case-by-case, the underlying cause is always the same: an unhappy management team. It is very difficult to maintain consistent service when you have high turn-over and a disgruntled/de-motivated team.

This is simple stuff. Possibly so simple that it’s over-looked.

Put succinctly: Taurus’ #1 goal is to create a place where our people love coming to work.

Said differently: Taurus’ vision of becoming BC’s standard for world-class property management, starts with becoming BC’s standard as a world-class employer.

We are far from perfect; however, the results speak for themselves:

  • The Taurus Team is tight knit, engaged, and committed
  • Tenants speak highly of us (a unique thing in commercial property management)
  • Taurus maintains extremely high Client retention.

Culture first, always.

The Monday Morning Memo

As a metronome keeps a beat for a musician, the Monday Morning Memo keeps a beat for the Taurus Culture. Every Monday morning, our team reflects on an internal memo focused on various topics deemed important at that point in time. Abridged versions of this correspondence can be found here.
