We have more than 4,800 employees in three countries, seven provinces, 32 states, and over 250 locations across the continent.
A pool of about 550 in-house contractors provides additional expertise and support, enabling us to execute upon our corporate strategies and deliver consistently strong results.
TransCanada’s employee population has never been more diverse – in terms of geography, culture and expertise. Our population is becoming more varied as we gain employees through acquisition in areas where we have not traditionally operated, as well as through a changing labour market. In 2012 alone, we hired almost 750 new employees.
Today, the average age of our employees is about 45. However, this demographic will change significantly over the next few years, as more than half of our new hires are under age 35 and approximately one-third are under age 30.
The average length of service among our employees is more than 12 years and our voluntary turnover rate was approximately 3.8 per cent in 2012. This speaks to the dedication, commitment and depth of experience in the TransCanada team.
