A Top 100 Employer

We have been named a Top 100 Employer for the 8th year in a row. Here are some of the reasons why we were selected as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2018:

  • we encourage employees to give to the Manitoba Hydro Employee Fund Board that is used to help employees and retirees in need;
  • we help prepare employees for life after work through retirement planning workshops and help them save for the future with contributions to a defined benefit pension plan;
  • we encourage ongoing employee development through subsidies for tuition and professional accreditation and a wide range of in-house and online training programs; employees may also apply for an educational leave of absence after four years of employment;
  • in addition to personal paid days off, new employees start accruing 3 weeks of paid vacation allowance, working toward a maximum of 7 weeks paid vacation. We may also consider an individual’s previous work experience when setting annual vacation entitlements for some positions;
  • active since the 1950s, our social committee organizes numerous fun events every year and helps to manage a number of sports leagues, including a baseball, curling, and hockey;
  • our centrally-located head office features roof top terraces, 6-storey glass atriums, and 24-metre waterfalls that moderates humidity;
  • we support employees who are new mothers or adoptive parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments (to 93% of salary for 17 weeks) and offer a variety of flexible work options for when they return to work.
