Selection and training
At Solarity, we know the right mix of people can inspire each other. We take a little extra time to find not only the most qualified person for the job, but also an excellent cultural fit. Building that dynamic is part art, part science and 100% magic when it all works. And once you're onboard, we make sure you have the tools, resources and training you need to knock the socks off your co-workers and our members.
Success begins with the right person in the right position
