EDMONTON, Oct. 10 /CNW/ - For an eighth consecutive year, EPCOR has been
selected as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers. EPCOR was placed among the Top
100 for 2008 after an extensive review of about 1,800 companies in Canada.
"Our goal is to continue to be an employer of choice," said Peter Arnold,
EPCOR Vice-President of Human Resources. "Our Human Resources strategic focus
is aimed at developing future leaders, establishing a culture of safety and
respect, and retaining our employees."
MediaCorp, Canada's largest publisher of specialized employment
information, and Maclean's magazine recognized EPCOR for its worker training
and benefit programs, plus its community support initiatives.
The Top 100 list recognized EPCOR for giving employees the opportunity to
build their careers, providing competitive compensation and flexible health
benefits, and for providing personal days off. Other contributing factors
included EPCOR's standing as an enlightened corporate citizen with its
company-subsidized social committee and its endorsement of employees who take
part in physical exercise and community involvement.
