Sears Canada announced that it has been named to the list of "Canada's Top Employers for Young People" by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers project.

"Our Company takes pride in putting practices in place that work to provide an environment which makes Sears a great place to work and we thank the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers project for recognizing our commitment to young Canadians," said Doug Campbell, President and CEO, Sears Canada.

"We are also proud to be a leader in Canada helping recent graduates create a long-term, potentially lifelong career, and we are pleased that Sears attracts young people to join our organization."

"We are investing in programs that develop the careers of young Canadians and consequently a growing percentage of Sears associates in our head office are under the age of 30," said Sam Pisani, Vice-President of Human Resources at Sears Canada.

"We offer paid internships, have launched the Sears Future Leaders and Analyst-In-Training program (AIT) and an in-depth orientation for new employees". AIT begins with a six-month immersion in a role to accelerate a young employee's understanding of business and skill development, offering concurrent formal training and work experience, followed by moving into a new role at Sears.

The Sears Future Leaders program (FLP), which develops young Canadians for a future in either a merchandising-based or store-based career will welcome its second class of students this Fall. FLP is a management training program that combines in-class instruction and on-the-job experience spread over several months of intense individual learning and group study.

Sears Canada is a multi-channel retailer with a network that includes 181 corporate stores, 246 hometown dealer stores, over 1,400 catalogue and online merchandise pick-up locations, 101 Sears Travel offices and a nationwide home maintenance, repair, and installation network.
