It gives me great pleasure to share that Canfor has been named one of BC’s Top Employers for 2016. We have received this recognition four years in a row and it continues to be just as rewarding.
As BC’s biggest forestry company and a leader in the forest products industry, our ability to attract and retain talented people in our organization is one of the most important factors to ensure our future success. To meet this goal, we constantly review our practices and programs to confirm they meet the changing needs of our employees. Participating in this type of competition is one of many ways to make sure we are on the right path.
To make this honourable list, companies must demonstrate that they are leaders in their industries, offering exceptional places to work.
Some of the reasons why Canfor was selected includes the support we provide for life after work and retirement planning, and for our commitment to lifelong learning through internships, in-house apprenticeships, mentoring, subsidies for professional accreditation and other educational opportunities.
We are very proud of our recent launch of Canfor College, a training and development framework that provides our employees with access to opportunities to further develop their skills. Through experience, exposure and education, we feel confident that Canfor College will be successful in setting our employees up for future success in their careers.
Thank you to the Canada’s Top Employers organization for their recognition. Even more importantly, I thank our dedicated employees. We are one of the largest employers on the list of companies and our selection is clearly based on the strength and contributions of everyone at the company.
It’s great to see Canfor recognized for what we offer as an employer, and my hope is that it provides prospective employees with added assurance that Canfor is a great place to build a career.
