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

Here are some of the reasons why Saskatchewan Public Service was selected as one of Saskatchewan's Top Employers (2016):

  • Saskatchewan Public Service supports employees who are new mothers, fathers, or adoptive parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments (to 95% of salary for up to 17 weeks) and helps employees balance their work and personal lives with flexible hours and telecommuting
  • Saskatchewan Public Service invests in ongoing employee development with generous tuition subsidies for courses related and indirectly related to their current position (to 100% of tuition), subsidies for professional accreditation and a variety of in-house and online training programs -- the Service also reaches out to the next generation of public servants through summer jobs, paid internships, apprenticeships and co-op programs
  • Saskatchewan Public Service recently established a diversity and inclusion strategy with the aim to build an inclusive organizational culture -- the Service already maintains an "Aboriginal Government Employees' Network" (operating since 1992) to promote the recruitment, retention and advancement of Aboriginal employees, and supports a unique "Youth Advisory Council" to consult on matters of particular concern to younger employees
