Samsung Electronics Canada Proudly Celebrates Ninth Year as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People
Annual competition recognizes the best workplaces in Canada for young people to grow rewarding careers
Samsung Canada is proud to once again to be listed as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People by MediaCorp Canada, as announced in a special edition of the Globe and Mail. The 2023 recognition marks the ninth year in a row that Samsung was named as one of the best places in Canada for young people to start their careers.
Companies who made the list were evaluated on their ability to attract and retain young workers, mentorship and training programs, growth and development opportunities, and the percentage of young people in the organization.
Samsung is committed to providing young Canadians with the best opportunities to learn and grow their career. Reasons behind Samsung’s recognition include:
- Co-op and Summer Student Program, which connects the organization with students from a variety of different schools across Canada. Through this program, students get an opportunity to contribute their unique insights and innovative ideas on areas such as corporate citizenship and employer branding.
- Partnerships with post-secondary institutions, such as working with Vancouver Community College to create a Samsung Tech Institute Home Appliance certification course as well as collaborating with Centennial College to launch a mobile application development program.
- Samsung’s Scholarship Program, which aims to assist young adults in their education at a college or university level. Open to children of employees, every year up to three (3) students are awarded a scholarship of CAD $2,500 each. in addition, all scholarship applicants receive a Galaxy Book Laptop to support their academic pursuits.
- Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow Contest that challenges young people to use STEM learning and Samsung technology to solve real-world problems that have a positive impact in their communities.
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized as a top workplace in Canada for young people to not only get their start, but flourish in their careers,” said Jihoon Lee, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics Canada. “We know young people continue to bring unmatched enthusiasm, innovation, and curiosity to the table that truly makes our business and culture stronger.”
