It has been announced that the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority has been named a Top Saskatchewan Employer for the third year in a row.
This designation is earned though Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. According to a news release from SIGA last week, Saskatchewan’s Top Employers is a special designation that “recognizes employers who offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.”
The criteria used is based on an evaluation of (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Communications; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Engagement; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
Among the reasons cited for SIGA’s recognition as posted at the Canada’s Top 100 Employers website:
- SIGA employees receive three weeks of starting vacation allowance and up to five paid personal days
- SIGA helps employees save through contributions to a defined contribution pension plan and matching contributions to a unique non-registered savings plan for First Nations employees
- SIGA focuses charitable efforts on communities where it operates and encourages employees to get involved with paid time off to volunteer.
“Our people are our foundation,” said Zane Hansen, SIGA’s President and CEO, in a statement.
“At SIGA, we’re committed to investing in our employees and creating a culture where our employees are empowered to do great things to advance their careers and personal goals. We work to build capacity in our people and foster meaningful career paths, offering exceptional training and career development opportunities as well as competitive compensation and benefits.”
