SaskCentral Named One of Canada's Best Workplaces

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - April 22, 2016) - SaskCentral is proud to have been named the 23rd best medium-sized workplace in Canada for 2016 by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. A second award named SaskCentral as the 15th Best Workplace for women among companies of any size.

SaskCentral is the only Saskatchewan company on the list.

"Everyone here is proud of our year over year success with the Best Workplace award," said Keith Nixon, CEO of SaskCentral. "We can count our organization as one of the best in Canada in taking care of its workforce."

Nixon points out that the success was not something that happened overnight but is the result of a culture built up slowly over the years. "We have continually been introducing new human resources policies to create an attractive workplace," said Nixon. "A few of the most popular have included measures like extended maternity leave, flex time, environmental practices in our building and three work days a year that can be used for volunteer activities."

The competition for the 100 "Best Workplaces in Canada" is based on two criteria. Two-thirds of the total score comes from an employee survey, along with open-ended comments about the organization. The remainder comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada.
