March 5, 2015 – Epcor Utilities Inc. has been named one of Alberta’s top employers for a 10th year in a row.

The company was noted for its focus on long-term development of employees through in-house training and funding for post-secondary education, as well as mentoring and leadership training.

“The people at EPCOR are very friendly and supportive and have truly helped my family and I to settle into, not only my new role, but a new country,” said Richard, an employee with Epcor Water Services Canada.

Epcor was also highlighted for supporting employees who are new mothers with maternity leave top-up payments (up to 95% of salary for sx weeks) and offering the convenience of an onsite daycare facility, managed by Little Scholars.

The company also maintains a “flexible health benefits plan that allows employees to customize levels of coverage to suit their personal needs as well as a wellness spending account for fitness-related expenses.”

In 2014 Epcor was named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People through Mediacorp’s competition, as well as Corporate Knights magazine’s Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens.

Epcor is a utility provider that builds, owns and operates electrical transmission and distribution networks, water and wastewater treatment facilities and infrastructure in Canada and the United States.
