OTTAWA — Hydro Ottawa announced that it was recently named a Top Employer in the National Capital Region by the Canada’s Top Employers competition.
Throughout the pandemic, Hydro Ottawa has reportedly equipped its employees with self-serve, mobile-enabled technology that makes work more collaborative, dynamic, and convenient. Leveraging various online platforms, including Google Workspace, Hydro Ottawa has reportedly helped employees stay connected and engaged with their teams, colleagues, and the company as a whole during a second year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021, the company achieved the distinguished Sustainable Electricity Company designation from the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA), making it the 11th CEA member in Canada and the third in Ontario to do so. Last year, Hydro Ottawa also announced that it was accelerating its commitment to sustainability by transitioning its operations to net-zero by 2030. Engaged employees and a focus on digitalization will each play a role in achieving the company’s sustainability goals.
“Our intention is to create a workplace of the future, and that includes providing our employees with the support they need to thrive in their roles. Our employees are passionate about innovation, the environment, sustainability and making an impact in the community. I believe it’s these shared values that are our greatest competitive advantage as an employer,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer.
