RRC named one of province’s top employers for seventh year running

Manitoba's Top Employers logoRed River College is proud to again be recognized as one of Manitoba’s Top 25 Employers for building a supportive, inclusive and engaging work environment for the more than 2,300 employees who’ve built their careers at one of Manitoba’s largest post-secondary institutions.

The designation — the seventh in a row for RRC — comes courtesy of the editors of Canada’s Top Employers, who each year recognize Manitoba employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

“When it comes to growing Manitoba’s economy and driving innovation in education, Red River College plays a vital role in preparing students and industry for the economic and job opportunities of today and tomorrow,” says RRC President Paul Vogt.

“This important job is in the hands of Red River College employees, who are extremely dedicated and passionate about making a difference in the lives of their students. We recognize this commitment of our employees and try to return the favour by ensuring the College provides an environment where staff are supported and encouraged in meaningful ways.”

RRC has a comprehensive human resources strategy that has allowed it to continue being recognized as an employer of choice, through a variety of initiatives related to recruitment, retention, professional development, succession, total rewards, labour relations and organizational effectiveness.

The College provides exceptional benefits across its nine campuses, including three weeks of vacation for new employees, maternity top-up payments for new and adoptive parents, a defined benefit pension plan, a flexible health care plan, telecommuting, and an extended paid Christmas break. There is also on-site daycare and on-site fitness facilities at several RRC campuses.
