PowerStream's ongoing dedication to employee well-being, engagement and satisfaction has earned the energy company recognition again for being one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers, Mediacorp Canada announced Monday.
PowerStream received the recognition, for the fourth consecutive year, based on having several programs in place which support and benefit employees including vanpool/carpool commuting, wellness programs, regular staff communications through e-newsletters and digital channels, encouraging fitness club memberships, an onsite cafeteria with healthy choices, flexible work hours, competitive health benefits as well as a unique "Power Perks" discount purchase program of goods and services provided by local businesses.
As a community-owned company and a top employer, PowerStream is also committed to the ongoing development of its employees and therefore offers a variety of in-house and online training courses, apprenticeships, co-operative education opportunities as well as subsidies for tuition and professional accreditations.
"Employee satisfaction has always been a top priority for us and a major factor in contributing to our success in serving customers and supporting the growth of the communities in which they live, work and play," said Maurizio Bevilacqua, PowerStream Board Chair and Mayor of the City of Vaughan. "We value our employees and strive to provide them with the support and resources they need to grow and thrive in a dynamic work environment."
PowerStream is a community-owned energy company that provides power and related services to more than 370,000 customers residing or owning a business in communities located immediately north of Toronto and in Central Ontario. It is jointly owned by the Cities of Barrie, Markham and Vaughan.
