Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, 2013/01/17 - SaskTel International (SI) announced they have been honoured for the second consecutive year by PROFIT Magazine as one of Canada’s 50 Best Small and Medium Sized Employers - SaskTel.com.
PROFIT Magazine, which is Canada’s best-read magazine for entrepreneurs and senior managers of small and medium sized businesses, partnered with Queen’s School of Business to complete the selection process.
“We are very pleased to receive this recognition,” commented Ron Styles, Chairman of the Board for SI. “The award is particularly significant because it is based completely on employee feedback, so winning it really solidifies to us that we continue to build and sustain a culture that will enable our future success.”
The winners are selected primarily based on employee engagement levels. Feedback was taken directly from employees about their workplace and their work experience to measure how engaged they are. Employees are considered engaged when they say, stay and strive; they speak positively about the organization to others, are committed to remaining with their current employer and are motivated by their organizations’ leaders, managers, culture and values to exceed expectations in contributing to business success.
"SaskTel International is once again to be commended on its continuing success in achieving Top 50 employer-of-choice status in the joint Queen's/Aon Hewitt national survey of workforce opinions” said Einar Westerlund, Director of Project Development at Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing, Queen’s School of Business. “This accomplishment speaks to the organization's key strategy of effectively engaging employees across a diverse range of functions in delivering high quality services within a dynamic and changing operating environment."
