We want — and need — to attract and engage the best people. That’s why we invest in the development of our employees by:
We believe that an organization’s culture is a key influence on employee engagement. Culture forms the baseline of how we get our work done and influences virtually every decision we make every day, which helps to guide our strategy. A positive company culture can help drive performance — and make Suncor a place where our employees are proud to work.
All employees through to our CEO continue to play a key role in demonstrating our culture. We use a variety of forums — from town hall meetings, webcasts and conference calls to small-group coffee sessions and one-on-one conversations — to engage employees in meaningful discussions about how our shared mission, vision and values are helping us deliver on our strategy.
Suncor is a company where talented people thrive. With a comprehensive rewards package and diverse career opportunities, we attract, recruit and retain some of the most capable individuals in the industry. It takes great people to make a great company, and we value the hard work of our employees each and every day.
Our total rewards approach to rewarding employees continues to be a robust offering. It includes:
Rounding out this picture are other programs designed to enhance quality of life for employees and their families. These include:
In early 2013, we introduced new career planning tools to help build greater competence and capability across the organization while investing in employee careers at Suncor. Helping our employees achieve long-term career satisfaction is an important part of our retention strategy.
We continue to conduct exit interviews with employees who choose to leave the company. Through these opportunities, we learn why employees leave Suncor and how we might minimize employee turnover, which is among the lowest in our industry.
We are currently recognized by the Globe and Mail as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers 2013. Other awards we’re proud of include:
Through our recruitment campaigns we continue to attract co-op students, new graduates and experienced people to Suncor.
