SaskTel named one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers for ninth consecutive year

Today SaskTel announced that it has been named one of Saskatchewan's Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the ninth consecutive year. In October 2014, SaskTel also received the distinction of being named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2014 for the 15th consecutive year, and remains the only Saskatchewan company that has been recognized every year since the inception of the competition.

"We are extremely pleased to see SaskTel again named one of Saskatchewan's top employers," said Kevin Doherty, Minister Responsible for SaskTel. "With world class companies like SaskTel, it is no wonder that more and more people continue to choose Saskatchewan as the ideal place to live and work."

"SaskTel understands that employees today are looking for more than just a good salary and benefits when they seek out employment," said Ron Styles, SaskTel President and CEO. "They want to work for a company that is a leader with cutting edge technology, provides ongoing training and development and offers a supportive and inclusive corporate culture."

Saskatchewan's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by Mediacorp Canada, the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Saskatchewan employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria used in the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offers the most progressive and employee friendly benefits and programs.
