An Insider's view of AMP Robotics

What are some social events your company does?

In 2020 we have a company lunch each week. One is a "lunch and learn" where an AMP employee gives a presentation on a technical or business topic. Sometimes we deviate and have a presentation on a topic totally unrelated to AMP, but one the employee is super passionate about. The other lunches are simply getting everyone together to socialize.

Director, Business & Corporate Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Innovation can come from any level. I try to provide the 30,000 ft view of the problem to solve and why it is important to the company's direction and success. I find this enables team members to look beyond the next steps and start to craft creative holistic solutions pairing perspectives to achieve innovative and creative solutions.
