Syncrude has been recognized as a best practice leader by Indigenous Works, formally the Aboriginal Human Resource Council.
The annual Workplace Inclusion Leadership Awards is designed to bring together “changemakers” for networking, peer learning and inspiring presentations focused on indigenous workplace inclusion. During this year’s awards on November 24, Syncrude took home the prize for Enterprise-wide Leadership.
In 2015, Syncrude reached its highest level of Aboriginal representation in 10 years, with 9.4 per cent of the total employee population.
This achievement was made possible by recruitment staff, including Aboriginal Recruitment Advisors and by organizations like Indigenous works, which allows Syncrude to connect with Aboriginal students about career opportunities and the importance of education.
