Making Every Day a Great Day for Young Canadians
TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Sears Canada announced today that it has been
named to the list of "Canada's Top Employers for Young People" by the editors
of Canada's Top 100 Employers project.
"Our Company takes pride in putting practices in place that work to provide an
environment which makes Sears a great place to work and we thank the editors
of Canada's Top 100 Employers project for recognizing our commitment to young
Canadians," said Doug Campbell, President and CEO, Sears Canada. "We are
also proud to be a leader in Canada helping recent graduates create a
long-term, potentially lifelong career, and we are pleased that Sears attracts
young people to join our organization."
"We are investing in programs that develop the careers of young Canadians and
consequently a growing percentage of Sears associates in our head office are
under the age of 30," said Sam Pisani, Vice-President of Human Resources at
Sears Canada. "We offer paid internships, have launched the Sears Future
Leaders and Analyst-In-Training program (AIT) and an in-depth orientation for
new employees". AIT begins with a six-month immersion in a role to
accelerate a young employee's understanding of business and skill development,
offering concurrent formal training and work experience, followed by moving
into a new role at Sears.
The Sears Future Leaders program (FLP), which develops young Canadians for a
future in either a merchandising-based or store-based career will welcome its
second class of students this Fall. FLP is a management training program
that combines in-class instruction and on-the-job experience spread over
several months of intense individual learning and group study.
