Canalta Hotels, one of Western Canada’s fastest growing hotel chains, announced today that their Canalta Esterhazy property has been designated as an Employer of Choice by the Saskatchewan Tourism Education Council (STEC), along with 8 other Canalta properties in Saskatchewan.

The Employer of Choice designation is awarded when the hotel has distinguished themselves as a best practices leader in Human Resources amongst other tourism employers, setting themselves apart by ensuring the organization is doing the right things to create and sustain a productive and motivated workforce.

In order to receive this designation, the Canalta Humboldt had to pass an internal audit of their organization’s policies, procedures, structures, resources and strategic direction(looking overall at how these contribute to the success of the organization), as well as an employee opinion survey.

“This is a great honor for our hotels as we know that people have a wide range of employment opportunities. This is a testament to how we are living our mission of leading success fullyto provide our team members with a fun and caring environment focusing on teamwork.” said Brooke Christianson, Vice President of Canalta Hotels.

“This prestigious designation is not only recognized and valued by our team members but by our customers as well. They recognize an Employer of Choice as a place that is likely to provide a better level of service than their competitor. By reaching our goal as Employer of Choice, it showcases that we are actively living our vision and mission.” said Tracy Peterman,Director of Culture & Team Member Development.
