The Canalta Ponoka hotel has been designated as an Employer of Choice from the Alberta Hotels and Lodging Association (AHLA), along with 38 of the company’s other properties.
The Employer of Choice designation is when the hotel has distinguished itself as a best practices leader in human resources amongst other tourism employers, setting itself apart by ensuring the organization is doing the right things to create and sustain a productive and motivated workforce. In order to receive this designation, Canalta Ponoka had to pass an internal audit of its policies, procedures, structures, resources and strategic direction. Overall looking at how these contribute to the success of the hotel.
“This is a great honour for our hotels as we know in today’s economy workers have a wide range of employment opportunities. This is a testament to Canalta Hotels’ commitment to excellence. We understand that our employees are one of the keys to achieving our vision; therefore, we cherish and nurture them, as they deserve.” said Brooke Christianson, vice president of Canalta Hotels.
“This prestigious designation is not only recognized and valued by our team members but by our customers as well. They recognize employers of choice as a place that is likely to provide a better level of service than their competitor.” said Tracy Peterman, from the department of culture and team member development.
