Recognized as one of Alberta's Top Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Agriculture Financial Services Corporation / AFSC was selected as one of Alberta's Top Employers (2016) and Top Employers for Canadians Over 40 (2016):

  • AFSC considers previous work experience when setting vacation entitlements for experienced candidates and actively seeks experienced adjusters for their knowledge (with the average age for adjusters being 53 years) -- also helps employees prepare for life after work with retirement planning courses tailored to employees under and over 45, phased-in retirement work options and generous contributions to a defined benefit pension
  • AFSC's forward looking "New Graduate Hire Incentive Program" helps new hires who are recent graduates offset the cost of post-secondary studies with annual payments of $1,000 per year, to a maximum of $4,000 over the course of 4 years
  • AFSC enrolls new employees into an "Orientation Buddy Program", pairing them with senior personnel, and manages a unique "Farmin' 101" training program for all employees without an agricultural background -- the 2-day program includes classroom training and a bus tour to farm operations and even a stop at a farm equipment dealership
