TELUS named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People 2015


When looking for a new job, I knew I wanted to work for a company that challenged its employees, provided opportunities for career development and gave back to the community in meaningful ways.  As a young professional, I feel lucky to have found myself working for a company that offers so much to its employees.

For the fifth consecutive year, TELUS has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. We were recognized as an employer that offers the nation’s best benefits for younger employees and the opportunity to take careers to new heights. From our mentorship, training and leadership development programs; to our commitment to diversity and inclusiveness and giving back to our communities; TELUS gives employees the tools they need to succeed.

I reached out to five of our top young employees to share a little bit about their experience at TELUS. Here’s what they had to say:

“TELUS is a company that offers endless opportunities to make a difference for our customers and the community. In addition to my role in operationalizing new collaborative healthcare IT services, I also support diversity and inclusiveness for women and multiculturalism. I am constantly surrounded by inspiring leaders and cross-functional teams that motivate me to do my best.” Phoebe Yu
