Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – K+S Potash Canada GP (KSPC) has been named one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers for the sixth time. This designation follows KSPC being named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2019 in November for the second year in a row.
“K+S Potash Canada is proud to maintain our Top Employer designation provincially and nationally,” said Sam Farris, President and General Manager, Operations, at K+S Potash Canada. “We’ve experienced a lot of changes moving from a project into operations, but the one constant has been our strong team. We’ve learned a lot together.”
K+S Potash Canada’s Bethune mine has been operating since the spring of 2017. The company employs just over four hundred people between the mine in Bethune, headquarters in Saskatoon, and a small logistics office in Vancouver.
Since joining Saskatchewan’s potash industry in 2012, the company has been committed to being a good employer and a prominent member of the industry.
“We’re proud to be recognized among some of our peers in the industry as Top Employers in the province,” said Dan Ross, Manager, Human Resources. “We believe the mining industry has and will continue to offer great opportunities to the people of Saskatchewan. We’re happy to be here.”
