“It’s an honour to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for the eleventh consecutive year, all thanks to the exceptional team at SaskTel,” said Doug Burnett, SaskTel President and CEO. “We are committed to ensuring all of our employees, especially young professionals starting their careers at SaskTel, can access the programs and training to advance their professional growth and development, all the while aligning with the needs and values of our business.”

“At SaskTel, our people are our strength,” said Shara McCormick, SaskTel Vice President of Human Resources and Corporate Services. “We believe that one of our greatest assets is the ingenuity and energy of our next generation workforce. Those students who currently sit in the classrooms of post-secondary institutions or high schools hold the key to the future of our organization, as well as our province.”

Canada's Top Employers for Young People recognizes employers that offer the nation's best workplaces and programs for young people. Evaluation criteria include attraction and retention programs, mentorship and training programs and career management programs.
