Another year as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers

I am pleased to announce that Mediacorp Canada Inc. has once again named Halton Region as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2018! This award distinguishes us as an industry leader offering progressive working environments that promote the growth and engagement of our employees.

We have received this award for the last seven years, and it has become one of our most important recurring achievements. Our team delivers essential programs and services to residents—Regional Council has a strong relationship with Regional staff, and we recognize that our team is the foundation of our success.

As a value-based organization, we deliver exceptional public service through collaboration and continuous improvement. Our positive and supportive work environment is defined by our commitment to employee recognition, well-being and professional development.

Halton employees can also take pride in the knowledge that their work supports local individuals, families and businesses and enhances the quality of life in the community.

Another of Halton’s strengths recognized by this award is our commitment to hiring emerging talent and helping young people launch their careers. Next month, Halton Region will post opportunities for the 2018–2019 Internship and Apprenticeship Program. This initiative allows recent graduates to gain paid, meaningful experience in their fields by supporting and enhancing Regional programs and services.

The 20 interns who joined us in 2017 have already contributed to strategic projects, learned from seasoned professionals and developed skills that will help them succeed in their careers. We look forward to providing similarly positive experiences to a new group of high-performing young people this year.

Candidates must be eligible to work in Canada and have graduated (or will graduate) with a recognized post-secondary degree, post-graduate certificate or diploma between January 2017 and June 2018. To learn more, visit halton.ca/internship.

Halton is a great place to work, and I would like to thank all Regional employees for their service to the community and earning us another year as one of Greater Toronto Top Employers!
