February 13, 2019 – At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, our faculty and staff work towards supporting, training and mentoring the workforce of tomorrow. Today Saskatchewan Polytechnic has been recognized as a Top Employer in Saskatchewan by Mediacorp Canada for the third year in a row.

“Thank you to our faculty and staff for making Saskatchewan Polytechnic a great place to work. Being recognized as a top employer is an honour, and an accomplishment which we couldn’t have achieved without the commitment and dedication of our outstanding employees,” says Dr. Larry Rosia, CEO and president at Sask Polytech. “We strive to be an employer of choice, to attract and retain the best people. Thank you to our faculty and staff who make a difference in the lives of our students and stakeholders every day.”  

The Top Employer designation recognizes Saskatchewan employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

“Our faculty and staff are passionate about the impact they make on a daily basis,” says Terence Carswell, associate vice-president, Human Resources. “We focus on their input through initiatives like the employee engagement survey to ensure we are continually striving for a desirable work environment. The engagement of our faculty and staff is a key driver in the success of our students.”

The editors at Canada’s Top 100 employers use a number of criteria to make their selections. Criteria include: physical workspace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communication; and more.
