Our love for Saskatchewan could fill a book!

As a Crown corporation that’s grown up with this province, SaskTel has a soft spot for the community, so much so that we can’t seem to do enough. To keep track of all the programs we initiate, support, and participate in, we write them down in a book. Read on for a few highlights.

If there’s one thing we love to do at SaskTel, we love to do good. Questionable grammar aside, we love to do good things for people, from our customers to our employees to everyone else in the community. Sometimes it’s as simple as sponsoring an event; other times, it’s big picture, futuristic thinking.

A good example is our efforts over the past year to attract and recruit a representative workforce that mirrors the ever-changing demographics of our province. Why would we do that? To give everyone a fair chance, of course. And from the look of things, we’re doing pretty well.

Employee Well-being
A commitment to an employee’s physical safety is important, but equally significant is taking care of our employees’ psychological and mental health.

Employee well-being took on a whole new meaning as the world navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. At the early onset of the outbreak, SaskTel, through its Pandemic Response Team and Crisis Management Team, planned for the safety of SaskTel employees, our customers, and our communities.
