Smythe is committed to open communication and working together as a team, which contributes to a friendly, engaging and safe working environment. We have a celebration culture where we diligently recognize small and large contributions, validating the importance of every member.

We also believe in the importance of providing each member of our team with a strong foundation of training and a personalized career path to ensure success. Each individual has a coach and mentor to help develop goals, provide timely feedback and the resources to achieve excellence. We encourage employees to expand and grow through firm-sponsored courses and professional development.

Our Committees

The Social Committee coordinates firm-wide social events. From Friday Afternoon Socials (FAS) to celebrating holidays, this group is all about bringing our people together.

The Sustainability and Community Committee focuses on coordinating initiatives that allow us to give back to our community, as well as making the Firm greener and more sustainable.

The Wellness Committee is committed to bringing employee health and wellness to the forefront of our company culture by promoting and supporting initiatives on physical and mental health.

*All proceeds from the initiatives and activities hosted by our committees go towards a charitable organization chosen by the Firm and our committee members.
