Calgary, AB, Thursday, February 20, 2020 – For the fourth year in a row Travel Alberta has been selected as one of Alberta’s Top 75 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
Travel Alberta team members consistently rank the organization high on the annual workplace engagement scale, reflecting key strengths in the areas of leadership, learning and development, goals and alignment, diversity and inclusion, and work-life balance.
“This is a testament to our entire team, reflecting the excellence and dedication they bring to their roles every day,” said CEO Royce Chwin. “Our people are more than the work they do; they are Travel Alberta’s number one asset. We are committed to supporting what’s important to them, professionally and personally, from learning and development opportunities to meaningful recognition and a purposeful work environment. This creates a healthy environment where we can do our best work in supporting our industry to grow the visitor economy.”
This year’s winning organizations include employers representing nearly every area of Alberta’s economy, that lead their peers in creating the province’s best workplaces and forward-thinking HR policies.
“We’re seeing a renewed focus by employers in the province on day-to-day improvements that make a real difference in the working lives of the people who work there,” says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor at Mediacorp. “Not big-budget or expensive programs, but practical initiatives–like helping employees balance their jobs with family commitments or making it easier for them to give back to the community–which other employers can emulate and improve on.”
Travel Alberta’s workplace culture and focus on wellness was also recognized by Excellence Canada with a 2019 Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month Great Employer Award.
