Some traditions are best kept alive. At ATCO, we keep our founder’s legacy at the core of our beliefs — going beyond the call of duty and striving for high standards. To get there, we empower our people to do their best by supporting their health and wellness and drive to learn more.
Taking care of our people extends beyond a competitive salary. Our ATCO Flex benefits program is designed to grow with you as life changes and things get busier. Choose from a variety of health and dental combinations, while also accessing a health and lifestyle spending account to cover extra expenses.
Need a few more days off? Welcome to Flex Days, a simple way to supplement vacation days when you need it.
Our Employee and Family Assistance Program also provides you with online resources to help meet personal health, wellness, financial and other goals. It also gives access to confidential, short-term counselling to help people overcome challenging times.
Preparing for the future starts today. We offer several savings programs that encourage our employees to proactively plan for their future. These include a pension plan, Group RRSP and an Employee Share Purchase Program (ESPP). Plus, we also match a portion of your contributions to the pension plan and ESPP.
Not sure where to start? Our online Personal Financial Planning Tool can assist and help alleviate some of the stress associated with personal finance.
Training and Development
Empowering our people to continue to learn and grow is important to us. That’s why we provide our staff with ongoing technical and non-technical training, as well as career development opportunities.
We’re always looking for future leaders. That’s why we’ve partnered with post-secondary institutions to deliver comprehensive leadership development programs, designed to broaden and enhance skills in leadership and management practices.
Our learning programs provide reimbursement toward the cost of post-secondary and can be applied to a career growth plan with the company. These learning programs are also extended to your children with scholarship and bursary funds to help defray the cost of post-secondary education.
