SCC delivers unique and innovative solutions for stakeholder communications and information delivery that support the achievement of measurable, sustainable and positive outcomes.

There is no shortage of companies offering communications and web development services. SCC is differentiated by its approach to business, which is expressed well by our mission. SCC collaborates with clients to identify and deploy innovative solutions that focus on the achievement of specific and measurable business outcomes. When accomplished, SCC’s business solutions are often cost neutral, but most commonly provide a measurable ROI and contributes meaningfully to bottom-line performance.


Our Values

Excellence – Innovation – Customer First – Value – Honesty – Accountability – Spirit – Community

Values matter because they shape the relationship we forge with customers and employees. Life’s best relationships are usually those anchored in common values and where alignment encourages cooperation, openness, and a shared desire to achieve success. SCC’s values embody who we are and what our clients can expect in everyday interactions.

We look beyond years of experience on your resume. We care most about people who possess the attitude, capability, and passion to excel when given the opportunity to do so.

This all sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, how about working minutes from the subway line, in a snazzy studio environment within a heritage building. Does a full benefits plan and the opportunity to work with energetic, bright and motivated teammates further excite you?

If we’ve captured your attention, and you fit one of the following roles, then give us a call.
