For the third year in a row, Sinai Health has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. Awarded annually by Mediacorp Canada, we were recognized for our mentorship programs and training and leadership opportunities.
We spoke to some of our employees in the early stages of their careers and asked them to share their thoughts on what makes Sinai Health a great place for young people to work.
“The pharmacy team at Bridgepoint is one of the most supportive I’ve ever worked with. When I first started here, everyone was so patient in helping me get familiar with the system. I can reach out and chat with more experienced colleagues whenever I run into challenges.”
– Amir Imani, Pharmacist, Bridgepoint
“I wanted to work at Mount Sinai because of the many opportunities available to all employees. As part of the patient transportation team, one of the best things about the job is the interactions we have with patients. We all work as a team and that makes the environment very comfortable. I believe everyone plays a key role at Mount Sinai and I’m very privileged to be part of Sinai Health.”
– Brook Ferede, Patient Transportation, Mount Sinai
“When I started my career with Sinai Health, I was a new grad who barely had a year’s worth of experience. The opportunity to learn and develop my professional skills, while directly applying the knowledge I gained from my education, made Sinai Health a great place to start my career. I was constantly trained and motivated by a team of dedicated and highly experienced colleagues, who helped me grow and expand my skills. As I progressed in my career, I was trusted to take on newer and more challenging responsibilities and projects, which was encouraging. Not only was I learning and growing through my role at Sinai Health, but it is also a rewarding and fulfilling experience.”
– Thevaki Easwaramoorthy, Human Resources Assistant, Bridgepoint
As a teaching hospital, Sinai Health prepares students to become employees, instead of simply viewing them as temporary and the attention to employee retention is evident. I began my career here as a nursing student during my second year of university and felt like I was treated as part of the organization from the start. Afterwards, I applied for a job as a Ward Clerk on the NICU, where I worked during my third and fourth year of university. Upon graduation, I was offered a job as a Registered Nurse on the same unit, illustrating how Sinai Health offers young people starting their careers opportunities to advance within the organization. As a side note, like many people in the GTA, I was born at Mount Sinai Hospital so I’ve progressed from a Sinai Health baby to a Sinai Health employee.
