To stay competitive, Syncrude has long realized it needs to have the most talented workforce in the field.
They do this by:
- Hiring foreign-trained professionals in regulated occupations at an intermediate level and providing financial assistance and time off as they work toward their Canadian licenses.
- Pairing new hires with experienced employees to help them be more comfortable in their roles and giving them the opportunity to learn the work from a seasoned role model.
- Increasing employee engagement and retention by supporting ongoing learning and development, which also prepares employees for more senior positions
