February 18, 2013

ISC has once again been named a top diversity employer. Mediacorp named ISC one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2013!

It’s the third year-in-a-row that ISC has won this award. It’s also the fourth win for us in the past five years.

Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2013 are published in the Globe and Mail.

Why was ISC chosen?

The corporation:

  • maintains a five-year diversity strategy with quarterly and annual diversity and inclusiveness goals -- the strategy is reviewed monthly by a senior human resources diversity consultant
  • manages a diversity and equity working group, which acts as a consultative body to help determine diversity goals and initiatives
  • created an Aboriginal Strategy Action Plan and requires new employees to complete training on Aboriginal cultural awareness
  • recently sponsored a networking event hosted by the Regina Aboriginal Professionals Association (RAPA) -- employees also participated at the event by mentoring post-secondary Aboriginal students to help them expand their professional network
  • participates in targeted career fairs hosted by the First Nations University and Stepping Stones Regina
  • forwards job vacancies to a variety of community organizations including the Neil Squire Society, Partners in Employment and the South Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre (SSILC), which works with persons with disabilities, to ensure positions reach a diverse group of applicants

How are we judged?

The Canada's Best Diversity Employers award recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs. The competition looks at the diversity initiatives in place at these organizations that relate to five major employee groups:

  • Women
  • Members of visible minorities
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Aboriginal peoples, and
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered/Transsexual (LGBT) peoples

Thousands of companies apply for this award each year. The short-listed applicants are then rigorously screened to determine the 55 winners.
