We CAN Make a Difference
Our company believes that corporate involvement is essential to build strong and healthy communities. We encourage employee giving, employee volunteering, corporate giving and support of the environment and society.
Our management team has identified “community” as a major focus in our strategic goal setting, supplemented by our corporate culture. Everyone wants to make the world a better place.
We fulfill numerous requests from special groups throughout the year in the form of monetary donations, sponsorships and multi-year commitments. Alliance Energy has contributed significantly to many groups, highlighting the following: University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Apprenticeship, Hospital of Regina Foundation, Childrens’ Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Hospital Foundation, Royal University Hospital, Ronald McDonald House. Our Employee Associations have an admirable history of giving funds to several charities that are important to the people who work for us. We also provide in-kind donations or presence on a volunteer basis to groups in Regina and Saskatoon such as Ronald McDonald House, Foodbanks, Adopt a Family, Transition House, PCS Stars. We offer an Employee Matching Gift Program designed to honour the diversity of employee giving. The company matches employee gifts to eligible charitable organizations.
Alliance Energy is involved with numerous local industry associations and community organizations, giving hundreds of volunteer hours and significant sponsorship funds.
We also have developed a formal program where we have established a relationship with a charitable organization in Regina and one in Saskatoon, coordinating an effort as one, to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
Our objective is to help inner city and at-risk youth to reach their potential. We do this by corporate funding assistance, volunteering, mentoring and support of various programs in the organization. Investment in youth takes place with a sincere respect for their natural intelligence, creating an atmosphere of hope and possibility.
The organization that was chosen in Regina was The North Central Family Centre. The centre is located in Regina’s most troubled neighbourhood and their mission is to provide programming, activities and services for the area children that will help them reach their potential. We have been actively involved with the North Central Family Centre and have been able to help by donating computers and books for their Literacy Centre Program, raising money and volunteering to give the children a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, assisted with gifts for the children and funds to help with their Christmas dinner.
The organization of choice in Saskatoon was Care & Share. Care & Share works in Saskatoon’s community and inner-city schools. We were assigned Mayfair School and have worked directly with the Principal and Community Co-ordinator to explore areas that require attention. Mayfair School offers breakfast, lunch and snacks to 200 or so students. Alliance Energy renovated the kitchen, hosted an Electrical Trade Day for the Grade 8 students, funded new science/lab equipment (“Alliance for Science”), helped serve Christmas dinner, judge Dance Off competitions and interacts with the students.
Alliance Energy supports the maintenance of the environment in which we live. To assist environmental strategies we support innovation and sustainability. One of our external goals is to provide our customers with knowledge they need to make sound environmental decisions in their building requirements. We also have a comprehensive Recycling program providing our employees knowledge and opportunities for recycling. Recycling is one of the best ways for all of us to have a positive impact on our world.
Health and Safety of our employees and others ensures the health and safety of our community. Our employees are obligated to adhere to our sophisticated safety policy and rules. Our goal of Mission Zero exemplifies everyone’s commitment to safety in our organization.
Our company prides itself on being an equal opportunity employer. Equality in the workplace is supported by our culture and commitment to our organization and our community.
Alliance Energy encourages participation in our community to ensure sustainability and positive outcomes securing a better quality of life for all, both now and in the future.
