Saskatoon, SK. (March 28, 2018) – Vendasta is honored to receive the North Saskatoon Business Association (NSBA) Employee Retention Award for excellence in employee development and training. Vendasta’s Chief Strategy Officer Jacqueline Cook accepted the award tonight at the Business Builder Awards at Prairieland Park.
“I want to thank all of the brilliant, driven people at our company for continuing to invest in our people,” said Cook. “Specifically, our People Operations Team for attracting talent from all over the world, working with educational institutions in building capacity right here at home, and investing in our people because – at the end of the day – it’s always about the people.”
The award acknowledges a Saskatoon business for its stable or growing workforce, lifelong learning, and career advancement opportunities. Vendasta has grown from 70 employees in 2013 to 280 employees at present, amounting to 300% growth in the last five years. More than 50 employees have advanced to other internal roles since starting at Vendasta. The company expects to have a workforce of 300 employees by the end of 2018.
Vendasta provides its employees with full health and dental coverage premiums, financial assistance for approved education courses, ergonomic workstations, free and discounted fitness opportunities, subsidized transit options, and access to nutritional food at the office. Vendasta also ensures that employees are given opportunities to connect and engage outside of the office through its social and volunteer committees.
This marks Vendasta’s second Employee Retention Award from the NSBA. Vendasta was among four deserving finalists for this year’s award, which also included JNE Welding Limited Partnership, Keystone Paving Corporation, and TCU Place.
