Their ideas, creativity and knowledge has shaped our organization, our internal and external programs and the intentional culture we’ve created.
Be aware that Alberta Innovates will never recruit you for employment opportunities via social media platform WhatsApp. Should you receive any suspicious messages from individuals claiming to be representatives of Alberta Innovates, know that these postings are fraudulent, unauthorized, and the individuals in question are not agents of Alberta Innovates and have no authority to act on our behalf.
Some examples of authentic recruitment would be interacting with our public social media posts or sharing correspondence with a member of our Human Resources team over LinkedIn or email.
Alberta Innovates and InnoTech Alberta embraces and upholds the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in our workplaces. We are committed to fostering an innovation ecosystem in Alberta intertwined with and inseparable from the principles of EDI and a work environment that wholly embraces these principles. As an employer of choice, we are dedicated to regularly embedding EDI best practices into our day-to-day operations. We welcome the contributions of all Albertans, whether as colleagues, innovators, stakeholders, or residents of our province.
Members of our employee EDI Council serve as visible and vocal advocates of our commitment, encouraging EDI in all levels, areas, and programs of the organization. The Council is dedicated to creating a company environment at Alberta Innovates and InnoTech Alberta where everyone can contribute as their authentic selves, without fear of harassment, prejudice, or discrimination based on – but not limited to – gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education, or disability.
If you love what you do, you’ll do your best work. Our employees are brilliant and innovative, and we believe they do their best when they have a balance between work and life. Our employees choose how they work. Options include working from home, compressed work hours or an earned day off.
Our comprehensive benefit plans include spending accounts, an Employee and Family Assistance Program, and a defined benefit pension plan.
We are problem-solvers, do-gooders, nerds and skeptics. We live our values of commitment, collaboration, can-do spirit, curiosity and creativity. We make decisions by them. Our core principles of accountability, integrity and respect are like the air we breathe, giving life to our organization.
If you like to join groups, we have social committees. If you’re athletic, we have boot camps and soccer. If you’re quiet, we have solitary spaces where you can read. If you like book clubs, we have an online forum for that. There is something here for everyone.
Your work home is here.
