SK Group is a community minded company. We sponsor many different sports teams of all ages and genders. We are firm believers in the sporting community as it teaches participants to work as a team, be self-sufficient, as well as fostering a healthy life style.
We support many organizations such as the Special Olympics, the United Way, Bon Soo, the Lung Association, Sault Area Hospital Volunteer Association along with many charity golf tournaments and running events. We believe in giving back to the community by supporting organizations that improve the lives of the people of Sault Ste. Marie.
The staff at SK Group support the community as well. They participated in the Big Bike Ride and had a blast while contributing to the fund raising efforts for the Heart and Stroke Association.
SK Group has always been a strong supporter of the co-op programs at the high school, college and university levels. We’ve had many students come work with us to get experience in the work world, some whom have become long time employees. This is an invaluable tool to bridge the gap between education and the work world and we are happy to be a part of this program.
From the college & university levels, we’ve had both graphic design and IT placement students at the college level and supported two Brazilian IT students by participating in the Students without Borders program at the university level. We embrace the students and make them part of their team while they are working at SK Group. By supporting these students in the work place setting, it’s beneficial to both the student and the company as some of the students that have had their placement with us have been hired to our team.
On many occasions, we have provided tours of our facility to the graphic design college students and classes of high school students. With the diverse areas SK Group has for branding it makes it a tour they don’t soon forget.
We support the co-op program because we know the benefits the students get from working hands on in a setting they are interested in.
