As a young employee looking to develop and grow in their career, it’s important that I’m working for a company that nurtures and supports its young employees. Today, that’s been reaffirmed for me as TELUS has once again been named as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People; the seventh consecutive year. It’s exciting to work for a company that not only brings the latest technology to market and is known for the best customer service in the business, but is also continuously innovating to bring exciting new programs to its employees.
For example, we not only announced the TELUS MBA Program in partnership with the University of Victoria, but we also harnessed the spirit of budding entrepreneurs to launch a unique Social Enterprise Competition that awarded a winning team of employees with a six month secondment and $50,000 in seed capital to bring a new product to market. Check out the 2015 winner: thinkFull.
TELUS is a place where younger employees have the opportunity to take their careers to new heights. The resources available to young employees like me extend from mentorship, training and leadership development programs to a company-wide commitment to diversity and inclusiveness and giving back to the communities where we live and work.
No matter what your career goals may be, TELUS strives to provide the tools I need to succeed while gaining hands-on experience.
Our company is filled with outstanding young people, but I asked four of my colleagues to share a little bit about their experience at TELUS. Here’s what they had to say:
TELUS fosters accountability at all levels, which has allowed me to contribute to both short and long-term strategic decisions. By creating a collaborative environment with experienced mentors, TELUS instills confidence in its employees to ensure our strong development and growth.

TELUS has a large focus on collaboration and innovation. I was able to work with teams all across Canada during a four month co-op term, working on projects ranging from core networks to the TELUS Innovation Centre exploring the latest technology. I had several mentors throughout the term who helped me develop skills in both engineering and business.

I felt very fortunate to participate in the TELUS Marketing Development program. It was an incredible opportunity to gain exposure to different areas of the business, have significant ownership at an early stage in my career, and build a comprehensive network of smart, driven TELUS team members!
