PROFIT Magazine, in partnership with Queen’s School of Business, has named SaskTel International (SI) one of Canada’s 50 Best Small and Medium Sized Employers. PROFIT Magazine is Canada’s best read magazine for entrepreneurs and senior managers of small and medium sized businesses.
“We are very pleased to receive this recognition for our work,” said Steve Sousa, SI President & Chief Operating Officer. “This honour will help SI in our recruitment efforts and puts our entire organization in a positive light.”
The list is primarily based on employee engagement levels. Feedback was taken directly from employees about their workplace and their work experience to measure how engaged they are. Employees are engaged when they say, stay and strive; they speak positively about the organization to others, are committed to remaining with their current employer and are motivated by their organizations’ leaders, managers, culture and values to exceed expectations in contributing to business success.
“SaskTel International serves as an excellent example of an enterprise which has been rated as an employer-of-choice by its staff because of its rigorous attention to overall culture and core values with a well-integrated 'business' and 'people' focus, and individual employee experiences,” said Einar Westerlund, Director of Project Development at Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing, Queen’s School of Business. “These individual experiences include: how their leaders lead and their performance is managed, being provided with the resources and work processes needed to deliver quality results, acknowledgement and recognition of individual contributions and accomplishments, and abundant opportunities for personal growth and development.”
