Bruce Power has been named as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for the 12th year in a row, recognition for providing a high-quality workplace and programs for those beginning in their career.
Bruce Power’s wide variety of development opportunities and programs in the workplace were lauded, including its online and in-house training programs, employee resource and affinity groups, development student program for work experience, and industry leading career development opportunities.
“We’re very proud to be able to offer young people great opportunities to begin in their careers and to be able to develop their skills and leadership,” said Cathy Sprague, Bruce Power’s Executive Vice-President, Human Resources. “We offer extensive training to all employees and we have a great workplace that fosters inclusivity and personal development.”
Canada’s Top Employers for Young People is an editorial competition that recognizes employers offering the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people starting their careers. Winners of the competition are chosen by the editorial team at the Canada’s Top Employers project based on the programs and initiatives they offer to attract and retain younger workers. These include benefits such as co-op or work study programs. The editors also examine each employer’s mentorship and training programs, including benefits such as bonuses paid on completing trades or professional designations. The editors also review each employer’s career management program, looking for initiatives that help younger workers advance faster in the organization.
Jason Ng, President of the North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN), said Bruce Power aligns with the organization’s mission of developing strong leadership and professional skills and inspiring today’s nuclear professionals.
“Our membership congratulates Bruce Power on this award and we’re thankful for the opportunities, training and programs that will help our young people reach their potential and become leaders in the nuclear industry,” Ng said.
