Cameco Continues to be a Top Employer

October 10, 2012

For the fourth consecutive time, Cameco has received the honour of being named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers in a national competition organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. and published in The Globe and Mail.

The annual competition recognizes Canadian companies and organizations that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees. Each year, more than 2,700 organizations and companies submit a detailed application outlining their HR practices.

Cameco was also recently named a Top Employer for Young People, a designation that is given to companies that excel at helping college and university graduates make the transition from school to work, and offer ongoing career development and advancement.

"We are pleased to be recognized as a top employer once again, and particularly encouraged to see that young people are choosing Cameco as the workplace to develop their careers," said president and CEO Tim Gitzel. "As we recruit new employees, we look for people who fit our culture and share our values. That is what makes Cameco a great place to work."
