TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW/ - ING DIRECT has been named one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures by Waterstone Human Capital, a leading executive search and professional recruitment firm. The award program, now in its seventh year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having a culture that has helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

"This award validates the importance we have placed on culture since day one at ING DIRECT. Our business was built on the concept that a strong and distinct culture could drive a more engaged workforce and increase business results", said Peter Aceto, President and CEO, ING DIRECT.

"The most successful businesses of the future will be those that prioritize the culture of their organizations, and let the culture drive the experiences their customers have with their brand," added Aceto. "Knowing our culture is one that is revered in Canada is a very rewarding honour and makes us proud."
