UHF recognized as one of Alberta’s Top Employers of 2022

Edmonton, AB – January 25, 2022 – The University Hospital Foundation (UHF) is pleased to be recognized as one of Alberta’s Top Employers of 2022 by Mediacorp Canada Inc., the organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. Alberta’s Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes Alberta employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers throughout the province were evaluated by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in Alberta; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.

“The Alberta employers chosen for this year’s list show a strong understanding of the need to come together during challenging times,” adds Kristina Leung, Senior Editor at Mediacorp. “From taking care of employees’ wellness and mental health needs during the pandemic to supporting local community groups under strain, these organizations have gone the extra distance to keep people together.”

Founded in 1992, Mediacorp Canada Inc. is the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals. Mediacorp also operates Eluta.ca, one of Canada’s largest job search engines, which reaches millions of job-seekers annually and features editorial reviews from the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

UHF would like to thank its employees for continuing to contribute to an extraordinary culture and living the organization’s values.

The full list of Alberta’s Top Employers (2022) was announced on January 25, 2022 in a special magazine published in the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal. Detailed reasons for selection for each of the winners were released by the editors today and are accessible via the competition homepage.
