Union Gas is the natural choice for employees

Named one of Canada's top 100 employers for the fourth consecutive year

CHATHAM, ON, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - For the fourth year running, Union Gas has been recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

"Employees choose to join Union Gas and stay with us because of our drive to be a business and community leader, our commitment to help employees grow in their careers and our support of a healthy work-life balance," said Steve Baker, president of Union Gas. "Our 2,200 employees are second to none - an engaged, high-performing team committed to serving our customers and communities across Ontario."

Union Gas is the natural choice as one of Canada's best places to work because we:

  • Lead.  We are committed to delivering unparalleled service to our customers, strengthening the economy through new infrastructure investment, championing significant public safety legislation and building a brighter future for communities through innovative environmental conservation programs.  Nick Klip, a Union Gas utility service manager who helped with the company's Hurricane Sandy relief efforts says, "I'm glad that I work for an organization that is willing to step up.  It's really a measure of the company and its employees."
  • Learn.  New and seasoned employees at all levels have a chance to learn and grow through personal development opportunities, secondments, rotations and special projects. Kendra Shurgold in Union Gas distribution operations explains, "Union Gas is a place where my dreams have come true.  I feel valued, supported, and have accomplished more than I ever thought I was capable of."
  • Live.  We believe in supporting a great quality of life for our employees through a wide range of formal programs and we invest in community organizations across the province that make life better for our friends and neighbours. "I truly value the opportunities I'm given to participate in health and wellness events and community volunteer projects," said Stacy Everett, of the company's Project Support team.

For over 100 years, Union Gas has been privileged to work in more than 400 Ontario communities. In addition to natural gas delivery services for homes and businesses, Union Gas has contributed to the province through significant economic investments, hundreds of jobs, millions in municipal taxes, energy efficiency programs, thousands of volunteer hours for community organizations, major charitable giving and sponsorships.
