NAIT recognized as a Top 60 employer in Alberta
NAIT has been named one of Alberta’s top employers for the second consecutive year.
“I am thrilled that, once again, NAIT is recognized as one of the best employers in the province,” said NAIT President and CEO Dr. Glenn Feltham. “Ours is a culture of respect, collaboration, celebration, support and accountability. These are the NAIT values and are what help make us one of Canada’s leading polytechnics.”
Alberta’s Top Employers is an annual competition that recognizes employers that offer exceptional places to work. NAIT was named one of Alberta’s Top 60 employers. The institute was recognized as one of the province’s Top 55 employers last year.
Employers were evaluated using eight criteria, including physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial & family benefits; vacation & time off; employee communications; performance management; training & skills development; and community involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
“The judges offered a number of reasons for selecting NAIT as one of Alberta’s Top 60 Employers, which relate to how we treat staff and our role in the community,” said Feltham. “At NAIT, we support our employees.”
The judges highlighted professional development opportunities at NAIT, noted the institute offers flexibility and security on retirement and supports a variety of local, national and international charitable initiatives.
Alberta’s Top Employers is organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.
