FortisAlberta selected as Alberta Top 70 EmployerJan 26, 2021, 16:02 PM
We are excited to announce that FortisAlberta has been selected as an Alberta Top 70 Employer for 2021. The Alberta Top Employer award, which is part of the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition, is the largest editorial project of its kind in Canada, with thousands of employers taking part in each year's application. The selection process considers eight key areas including physical workplace, atmosphere, benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, training and skill development and community involvement.
A few of the reasons FortisAlberta was selected for this award are:
Our support of charitable initiatives that relate to safety, education, the environment and wellness, and the extensive volunteerism that our employees participate in across our communities.
Our investment in ongoing employee education with generous tuition subsidies of up to $3,000 for courses taken at external institutions and our offering of academic scholarships for children of employees (up to $1,500)
Our culture of recognition through Going the Extra Mile peer-to-peer awards, the It Matters trophy for volunteerism, annual President's Award for excellent customer service, and various awards for safety
