Manager of workforce planning and talent acquisition
Talent acquisition in anty organization is a challenge, but this obstacle is exacerbated when recruiting for specialized skills in sparsely populated rural areas. As a recruitment head for the largest publicly traded uranium company in the world, Junor faced just this predicament. He found a way to add value not only to Cameco, but also the community at large.
“I’d rather have a tight labour market than slack in the system,” Junor says. “It forces us to be on our toes and present the best package for our existing and potential employees.”
As a result, Cameco offers cutting-edge training, compensation and benefits. Since half of Cameco’s Canadian workforce is comprised of First Nations, and the company is continually seeking to invest in Aboriginal communities, it is a great model to which other organizations should aspire.
