The 2013 recipients of the Premier's Award for Excellence in the Public Service were announced today during National Public Service Week.

“This year’s recipients exemplify the calibre of innovation and excellence found in Saskatchewan’s Public Service, whose efforts continue to make our province an even better place,” Premier Brad Wall said.  "It’s truly an honour to recognize these award winners and celebrate their achievements.”

The Award recognizes Saskatchewan public service employees in three categories: Innovation, Quality Service and Leadership.  The individuals and team recipients are:

  • Tim Earing, Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, Promoting Apprenticeship (Quality Service)
  • Giles Saulnier, Ministry of Justice - Corrections and Policing, Urban Camp Program (Leadership)
  • Mineral Administration Registry Saskatchewan Team, Ministry of the Economy (Innovation)
  • Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative Team, Ministry of Health (Quality Service)
  • The Saskatchewan Employment Act Development Team, Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety (Quality Service)
  • Community Services Unit Senior Leadership Team, Ministry of Social Services (Innovation)

Individuals or teams from provincial government ministries, some Treasury Board Crown corporations, boards, commissions and agencies are eligible for nomination by the public service, stakeholder organizations, clients and citizens.  Selections are made by an independent committee.

The Government of Saskatchewan was selected earlier this year by a national panel as one of Saskatchewan’s Top Employers in 2013.  The Government of Saskatchewan offers a wide range of exciting opportunities for meaningful, rewarding work and professional growth for employees, while it remains one of the most diverse employers in Saskatchewan with a large array of technical, professional, management and support positions.
