Boyle, AB — Maclean’s magazine has named Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, and one of Alberta’s Top 35 Employers for 2008.
“Since our company began production in 1993, we have worked hard to develop a company and culture that values our team members, promotes innovation and creativity, and is a great place to work,” says Al Ward, Al-Pac’s executive VP and COO. “This recognition as one of the best 100 places to work in Canada confirms that we are successful in this pursuit and is one that we will continue to enhance to maintain an exemplary workplace.”
Some of Al-Pac’s attributes included a company-wide profit sharing plan, comprehensive and competitive benefits, industry-leading training, workplace flexibility and subsidized community volunteering. They also provide a four-day work week, an on-site driving range, a 16-hectare trout pond, a fitness centre and walking trails.
The list was compiled by Mediacorp Canada, publisher of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, in partnership with Maclean’s. The process included examining the recruitment history of over 72,000 Canadian employers, inviting 14,000 employers to submit applications, and evaluating 1,800 applications. The study focused on eight key areas: physical workplace, work atmosphere, social, health, financial and family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, training and skills development and community involvement.
