January 30, 2024, EDMONTON, AB – In a significant accolade, Silvacom Ltd. (Silvacom) has been recognized as one of Alberta's Top 80 Employers for the eighth consecutive year through the esteemed annual competition organized by Canada's Top 100 Employers.
This award recognizes the Alberta employers who lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Winners were announced in a special edition magazine published in the Edmonton Journal and Calgary Herald and online at edmontonjournal.com and calgaryherald.com. The 80 winning workplaces are not ranked in any order.
"We are honoured to accept this award for the eighth consecutive year, a testament to the unwavering dedication and hard work of our exceptional team," says Tom Grabowski, President and CEO of the Silvacom Group. "Looking ahead, we remain steadfast in our promise to prioritize our employees, ensuring their well-being and fostering a positive, rewarding work environment. Together, we will continue to elevate our workplace for years to come."
First published in 2006, Alberta's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Alberta employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Employers are evaluated using eight criteria: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere and Social; Health, Financial and Family Benefits; Vacation and time-off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training and Skills Development; and Community Involvement.
The judges offered several reasons for selecting Silvacom, including:
- Silvacom encourages employees to enjoy the lighter side of work through a variety of company-organized activities, including an annual awards banquet, week-long in-office celebrations including food trucks, yard games and a bacon breakfast, onsite puppy therapy, and virtual events such as board game night, a Halloween costume contest, and a virtual escape room
- As part of the company's health benefits plan, employees receive $1,200 flex dollars, which can be allocated towards health care and wellness coverage, the purchase of extra vacation days, child care, or even transferred to an RRSP
- In addition to generous matching RSP contributions, Silvacom helps employees prepare for the future with retirement planning assistance and phased-in work options to help those nearing retirement
"Besides offering excellent employment opportunities and an affordable cost of living, Alberta
is a place where you can build a full life outside of work. Many of this year's winners offer flexible work options to help employees balance their commitments outside the workplace. Families are often welcome at corporate events and social activities, allowing employees to foster meaningful social connections and build their community. These are just some reasons why this year's winners shine," says Kristina Leung, managing editor at Mediacorp.
The complete list of Alberta's Top Employers (2024) was announced today in a special magazine published in the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal. Detailed reasons for selection for each of the winners were released by the editors today and can be found online at canadastop100.com/alberta
