  • Linguistic Services Team. Without the skilled efforts of our Linguistic Services team, ESC would not be able to deliver precise and informative communications to our audiences. Our dedicated team of seasoned translators provides the highest level of accuracy and expertise.

  • Project Managers. Bringing it all together is the project manager. They plan the work that needs to be done and define roles and responsibilities, review the risks involved, ensure a high standard of work, motivate the team of people involved in the project, coordinate deadlines, ensure the project is running on time and on budget, update project plans as necessary and make sure the project delivers the expected outcomes and benefits. No easy feat in a virtual work environment, however, flexibility and a sense of humour goes a long way.
  • Executive Leadership Team. The Express Scripts Canada leadership team is dynamic, dedicated and lead with their heads – and their hearts. They take an active role in content development and bring it all to life on camera.
  • Marketing Team. ESC’s marketing team applies their creativity and strategic-thinking to this project.
