Today, SaskTel is proud to announce that it has been named on the Forbes list of Canada’s Best Employers 2021. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

“We are very honoured to be part of this list and take great pride in being named #1 of all telecommunications services and cable provider companies in Canada,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “Our employees are very important to us; they are the building blocks that make SaskTel what it is. To receive this award is a testament of the culture of SaskTel, where we collectively value teamwork, recognition and personal development.”

“It is not surprising that our employees view SaskTel as a top place to work,” said Shara McCormick, SaskTel Vice President of Human Resources and Corporate Services. “This recognition speaks to the fact that our strength really is our people, and we all strive to maintain a positive and respectful workplace that retains our employees and is attractive for future ones.”

Forbes and Statista selected the Canada’s Best Employers 2021 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of more than 8,000 Canadian employees working for companies with more than 500 employees in Canada. The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.

Based on the results of the study, SaskTel is elated to be recognized on the Forbes list of Canada’s Best Employers 2021. The full awards list can be viewed on the Forbes website.
