The City of Calgary awarded among top 70 employers in Alberta based on a national review by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

The Alberta’s Top 70 Employers Award recognizes Alberta employers that offer exceptional places to work.

“Each day my colleagues at The City of Calgary come to work knowing that we get to do great things to make Calgary an even better place in which to live, work and play,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “We’re proud to receive this honour, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to recognize the hard working people who serve this community so well.”

The award evaluates Employers based on eight criteria including, performance management, training and skills development; community involvement; physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; and employee communications.

A City of Calgary news release says, “being recognized as one of Alberta’s Top 70 Employers supports The City’s effort to attract and retain the best candidates so it can effectively deliver on Council’s priorities.”
