Good. Better. Best. The Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association makes the Top Employers List

REGINA, SK, February 13, 2019 – First published in 2006, Saskatchewan's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Saskatchewan employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. From high-technology to mining, traditional public services, and non-profits, the companies and organizations that made the 2019 list of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers are as diverse as the province’s people and the Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association (SCSA) is proud to announce that it has made this year’s list.

SCSA President, Collin Pullar, explains, “We knew in November that we had been shortlisted for the Canada’s Top Employer list but were asked to keep that under wraps until the provincial list had been officially released”, Pullar goes on to say, “At the SCSA, we often talk about a baseline for safety, as set out by legislation, and we pride ourselves in encouraging our members to adopt a ‘good, better, best’ approach to their safety management systems . . .  always striving to adopt better and best practices. Some examples of the things that the selection committee viewed as our ‘better’ and ‘best’ HR policies related to work-life balance through things like earned days off; paid training and professional development opportunities; benefits including matching employee RRSP contributions; and formal and informal staff social activities like the Employee Spring Conference, Employee Service Awards, and fully funded social committee.”

Although Saskatchewan's unemployment rate is the fourth-lowest in the country, its employers have been at the forefront in offering progressive HR benefits and workplace policies that Canadians now expect from the best employers. Among this year's winners is a 'catalogue of best practices' when it comes to the kinds of benefits that make an employer truly exceptional.

“Reviewing the 2019 list of Saskatchewan’s top employers, I must say that it is an honour to have our name listed with a number of the businesses and organizations that we have partnered with over the last year to help us achieve our vision of the safest construction environment in Canada and our mission of constructing safety leadership in Saskatchewan. Congratulations to all of the businesses that made this year’s list and a special thanks to the SCSA Leadership Team and Board, for recognizing the value of investing in our greatest asset . . . our people,” says Pullar

The Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association (SCSA) is an industry-funded, membership-based, non-profit organization that provides cost-effective, accessible safety training and advice to employers and employees in the construction industry throughout the province to reduce the human and financial losses associated with injuries.
