REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - April 10, 2015) - SaskCentral is proud to have been named the 14th best medium-sized workplace in Canada for 2015 by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, up from 15th in 2014. A second award named the organization the 20th best workplace for women among companies of any size.

This is the eighth year SaskCentral has made the top 100 list.

"People are the core of our business, and we understand that people's lives and families are busy and demanding." said Keith Nixon, CEO of SaskCentral. "By offering a respectful, flexible and welcoming workplace we create the type of culture where employees can maintain balance and focus on the tasks at hand."

"Our employees contribute to our positive workplace," says Nixon. "We're extremely proud to be able to call SaskCentral a great place to work."

The competition for the 100 "Best Workplaces in Canada" is based on two criteria. Two-thirds of the total score comes from an employee survey, along with open-ended comments about the organization. The remainder comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures.
