Now entering its ninth year, Saskatchewan's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Saskatchewan employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
Our editorial partners on the Saskatchewan's Top Employers project are the two largest newspapers in Saskatchewan: the Leader-Post and The StarPhoenix. Each year, both newspapers announce the winners in special supplements, which also include our reasons for selecting each employer. Our 2013 winners were announced by the Leader-Post and The StarPhoenix in a special newspaper supplement published on February 6, 2013: Download (PDF 1.7Mb)
The Saskatchewan Association of Human Resource Professionals is our research partner on the Saskatchewan's Top Employers project. SAHRP works with us to help expand knowledge of best practices in recruitment and retention, both within the human resources profession and among the broader public.
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Saskatchewan may apply for this competition. Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
Our 2014 winners will be announced in a special supplement to be published by the Leader-Post and The StarPhoenix early in 2014. Full editorial calendar »
