SAS Canada is proud to announce that our organization is included on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces for Mental Wellness. SAS continues to be recognized for its focus on its employees after also being honoured as a 2020 Best Workplaces™ in Canada, a 2020 Best Workplaces™ for Women and Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion earlier this year.

“Workplace mental health has never been more important,” said Cameron Dow, President of SAS Canada. “SAS has always believed that at the core of any good workplace is happy and healthy employees. It is what drives our world renowned culture and has always been an integral part of who we are as a company. Today’s ranking is a testament to our beliefs, and we remain committed to nurturing this culture and creating a positive workplace where people want to work because it’s good for our employees and good for business.”

SAS Canada received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.  To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work-Certified™ in the past year and at least 80% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy. We determined the BEST based the overall Mental Wellness Index score from employees.
