NAIT named one of Alberta’s Top Employers
EDMONTON – The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) has been recognized as one of Alberta’s top employers for the fourth consecutive year.
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 70 employers. The 70 workplaces were not ranked in any particular order. The polytechnic was also recognized as a top employer in 2012, 2013 and 2014. NAIT’s promise to staff is to be one of Canada’s outstanding places to work.
The judges offered a number of reasons for selecting NAIT, including professional development and in-house training opportunities as well as enhanced health and wellness-related benefits.
- Employers were evaluated using eight criteria, including physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
- Employers were compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
NAIT has 2,700 employees.
