Supporting a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

Husky seeks to attract, retain and engage employees with a strategy that supports a more inclusive workplace. Its Diversity and Respectful Workplace Council provides local representation in all areas of operations and organizes employee events to increase awareness and understanding. Training and education programs continue to increase employee knowledge and encourage a respectful work environment.

The Company’s Employment Equity Plan is designed to ensure appropriate representation of women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and visible minorities in its workforce, while eliminating barriers to employment and advancement. A 2015 partnership with the Canadian Centre for Women in Science, Engineering, Trades and Technology (WinSETT) is focused on encouraging women in technical careers in the energy industry.

Professional Development

Husky offers training, mentoring and professional development programs and resources to its employees. Leadership and business skills sessions were offered in 2015 to help employees more effectively deliver on the Company’s strategy. Tuition reimbursement and a subsidized master’s degree program are also available to qualified candidates.

Total Rewards

The Company’s fully funded, comprehensive benefits package is designed to help employees and their families maintain physical and emotional health, including supplementary medical and dental care, income protection (life and accident insurance, short and long-term disability coverage), registered retirement programs, a savings plan, vacation and paid time off. A fitness allowance, service awards, dependent scholarships and summer camp reimbursement are also offered.

Employees are able to take advantage of a financial literacy program, including financial education opportunities, access to financial planning resources and one-on-one retirement planning sessions, while retiring employees may qualify for a comprehensive retiree health benefit program.

Husky expanded its health and wellness programs in 2015, with a myHealth website highlighting resources ranging from services available to physical and mental health tips. Employees participated in a pilot program focused on improving health and wellness.

The Company’s annual personalized Total Rewards Statement gives employees a complete picture of how they benefit from, and can maximize, their rewards programs.
