CALGARY, Feb. 20, 2019 /CNW/ - Travel Alberta scores a hat trick: the organization that leads in promoting Alberta as a top tourism destination has been selected as one of Alberta's Top 75 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the third year in a row.
"The passion that our people bring to their work is essential to the organization's success and the value Travel Alberta delivers to its industry partners," says CEO Royce Chwin. "Along with our tourism partners and stakeholders, we're part of what we call 'Team Alberta'. Together we contribute to an industry that plays a major role in the economic success of communities throughout Alberta and creates a place where others want to live, work, visit and invest."
Travel Alberta team members consistently rank the organization high on the workplace engagement scale, reflecting key strengths in the areas of leadership, goals and alignment, diversity and inclusion, and work-life balance. Among the reasons why Travel Alberta was selected as a top Alberta employer is the culture of employee recognition it has cultivated, and its comprehensive benefits and pension programs.
Mediacorp's annual list recognizes Alberta employers that are creating progressive and engaged workplaces, which can be challenging in the current economic environment.
"One of the unique aspects of the Alberta story is a resiliency that I don't think is that well understood outside the province," says Richard Yerema, managing editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. "The employers that made this year's list paint a robust and stable picture of the employment landscape in Alberta."
