“We’re thrilled to be named one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers,” SATCC CEO Jeff Ritter said. “I love coming to work every day. We care about each other and we express that appreciation regularly.”

Ritter’s not the only one at the SATCC who enjoys going to work.

According to the SATCC’s 2019 employee engagement survey, 80 per cent of staff members agree with the statement: “I find my work fulfilling and look forward to coming to work each day.”

The SATCC places a strong emphasis on internal communications and ensures staff members receive updates from the CEO and other members of the Senior Management Team through monthly stand-up meetings and annual all-staff meetings.

The SATCC also promotes continuous education – every employee completes Service Best customer service training and Respect in the Workplace training.

“Not only are our staff engaged, we’re also efficient and productive,” Ritter said. “We know we provide our province’s employers and apprentices with excellent customer service. Our customer satisfaction survey results demonstrate this.”

According to the SATCC’s 2019 employer and apprentice satisfaction surveys, administered by Insightrix, clients are incredibly satisfied with the SATCC’s level of service.

More than 90 per cent of employer respondents agree SATCC staff members are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and more than 85 per cent of apprentice respondents agree.
