Mississauga, ON – December 12, 2013 – Candu Energy is proud to be recognized by The Learning Partnership for our Take Our Kids to Work™ initiative in 2013.
On November 6, 39 grade 9 students came to work at Candu Energy with their parents and spent the day learning about careers in nuclear engineering. “We wanted to make the day as practical as possible for the students,” said Susan Martin, Director, Total Rewards. “So along with a fun exercise of designing a nuclear-powered car, we also did a short workshop on building effective resumes.”
The Outstanding Employer Award from The Learning Partnership recognizes employers for programming that demonstrates a commitment to helping students – Canada’s future workforce – explore career options and stay in school. Candu Energy was among 10 employers across Canada to be recognized along with companies such as Samsung, CBC Radio-Canada and The Fairmont Waterfront.
