The Top Employers list of Saskatchewan has been released for 2018. Southeast College who have campus locations in Weyburn, Estevan, Moosomin and Indian Head made the list.

Dion McGrath, CEO, South East College is humbled and honoured for the recognition.

"I give the credit to all of the people who make the college all it is today and that's the staff."

Southeast found out the results in December 2017 and had to wait till Canada's top 100 officially launched the 2018 program.

McGrath said the criteria to make the list is extensive. Employee benefits, the work environment and whats available to the employees by the employer are part of that criteria. Making the list boosts the attention the college receives for attracting new potential employees.

"The College is always looking for talent," explained McGrath.

"We're always on the hunt for quality instructors for a lot of the programming that we do."

"This is the first time that we have captured this honour and we are very pleased with it."

McGrath has been the CEO for Southeast College going on five years.
