Our Contigent Workforce Management Team
Our Contingent Workforce Management Team is made up of administrators who are available to prepare client and contractor paperwork, conduct quality checks on information, resolve any payrolling and invoicing questions, and help ensure high levels of contractor satisfaction. This team also coordinates information with Account Managers, payroll and accounting personnel to ensure top quality service to contractors.
Justin Herman, Owner of Saskana Group says he was approached by a friend in 2011 who was working in the oil and gas industry and mentioned there was an opportunity to pursue safety contracts. “This prospect was a glimpse of the beginnings of Saskana Group and the services we would provide,” says Herman. Over the last decade Saskana has grown to include Saskan Staffing, Blankets & Installation, Electrical, Solar Lighting, and majority ownership of Stream Source.
The name Saskana was inspired by the idea of having something meaningful and culturally relevant. “I wanted a name that was culturally indicative of where I come from and my people,” Herman says. “I chose Saskana, meaning "my children" in Dene. When I started the company, I had started it so I could leave a legacy for my children.”
Saskana has the vision to build a legacy for families and communities of Fort McMurray, Chard Métis Nation and Wood Buffalo. Saskana's workforce is local to the Wood Buffalo area; the priority is to hire local Indigenous workers, reaching outwards to other Indigenous communities, such as Saskatchewan and southern Alberta. “I always strive to create opportunity and a better future, not only for my family and career but also for my community,'' Herman says. “It’s rewarding and impactful when I can hire people from my home community so that families can provide for themselves and contribute to their community.”
