Summit Pipeline Services
was recently named by Spirit Staffing & Consulting Brandon Inc. and ius Opes Training as one of the best places to work in Canada. Summit was honored for achievements in the areas of commitment to their workforce, leadership, positive safety culture and strong corporate values.
Summit was selected based on a three-part evaluation of management commitment to their workforce in terms of company values, safety initiatives, training and development, workplace policies, practices and employee comments, satisfaction and loyalty. This award was designed to recognize an outstanding business which respects employees as quality team members, demonstrates dedication to employees' well-being and overall satisfaction in the workplace. Summit creates awareness, develops skills and capitalizes on personal qualities and values at all levels within the organization. They enhance the importance of a positive safety culture, human capital, engagement and retention in the workplace, while aligning and maintaining the company's values, vision and mission.
"We are experiencing a paradigm shift from an employer's market to an employee's market. As employers try to attract and retain quality people, while preparing for the perceived 'skilled labor shortage of 2020', we must take a hard, honest look at where we are today," Charlotte Larocque, executive director of Spirit Staffing & Consulting Brandon Inc. and president of ius Opes, said as she presented the award to Summit in Cornwall, Ontario, on Sunday, February 9.
"We are very proud to receive this award and recognition," said Tyler Madigan, Summit vice president. "Employee safety, satisfaction and development are of paramount importance to us and it shows in the dedication of everyone on our team. We are committed to building on our past successes and with our team and values strongly in place, I am confident that our overall performance will continue to be best-in-class."
