Enbridge has long been deliberate about creating an inclusive and welcoming workplace, making it an employer of choice for immigrant talent.
- “The treatment and equitable possibilities for immigrants are remarkable. Enbridge is a leader in promoting, supporting, and embracing diversity in the workplace. An intercultural space is the norm in the company.”
- “I’ve been treated with respect, kindness, and at times like family by my direct leaders and co-workers.”
- “Enbridge is not an employer that measures just business performance; our leaders truly care about the people who work here.”
These are excerpts from letters written by a handful of internationally educated professionals that Enbridge Pipelines employs. The company had submitted the letters in support of its winning application for the 2014 RISE (Recognizing Immigrant Success in
Edmonton) employer award for welcoming workplaces initiated by the Edmonton Mennonite Center for Newcomers. This is the third time it is being recognized with a RISE award.
“We work hard to make Enbridge a welcoming workplace for internationally educated professionals (IEPs),” said Lori Campbell, Enbridge’s Diversity Manager, “and we’re thrilled to receive such an award.”
So what makes Enbridge a welcoming workplace for IEPs?
