Syncrude has once again been recognized as one of Alberta’s Top Employers.
The designation is given to 60 organizations in Alberta as part of an annual competition recognizing the best workplaces across the province by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
“This recognition is important because we are committed to being the employer of choice in the oil sands industry,” said Donelda Patterson, manager, HR Services. “In order to attract and retain the calibre of employees needed for our business, we have tried to make Syncrude a great place to work. We are pleased to see that Mediacorp’s judges agree, especially as this designation will help us continue to attract talented people to our organization.”
Mediacorp’s panel has named Syncrude on its list of Alberta’s Top Employers for the past four years.
The judges cited Syncrude’s benefits and skills development to its employees, noting everything from the vacation allowance for new employees to planning assistance for retirement to older employees and unique perks that include an annual bursary of up to $2,400 for children of employees or retirees for postsecondary education.
