Vancouver, BC and Saskatoon, SK, Feb. 02, 2011 – Point2 today announced that it has been named one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers for 2011, placing on the coveted top 20 list for the second year in a row.
Saskatchewan’s two largest daily newspapers, the Saskatoon StarPhoenix and the Regina Leader-Post, published this year’s winners today.
Now in its sixth year, Saskatchewan’s Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes employers in Saskatchewan that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Mediacorp Canada Inc. editors evaluated this year’s nominees based on eight criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
Employers were compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
“We thank Mediacorp for recognizing our efforts in making Point2 a great place for motivated, focused individuals to develop and build successful careers,” said Saul Klein, senior vice president, Point2. “We strongly believe that a key driver behind our consistent growth has been the commitment and dedication of our managers, team leaders and staff that remains focused on serving our customers the best we can.”
“Point2 has distinguished themselves on a very competitive list this year, especially when measured against well-known, public-sector employers that were included on the 2011 Saskatchewan list,” said Tony Meehan, publisher of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.
Employers apply for Saskatchewan’s Top Employers competition through the Canada’s Top 100 Employers application process. For this year’s national competition, Mediacorp editors examined the recruitment histories of over 75,000 employers across Canada that it tracks for its popular job search site, Eluta.ca. From this initial group, Mediacorp invited 10,000 of the fastest-growing employers to apply, plus another 2,500 companies and organizations in industries its editors wanted to examine more closely. Employers completed an extensive application process that included a detailed review of company operations and human resources practices. Over 2,750 employers started this year’s application process.
