BDC Named One of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for 2016

MONTREAL, Feb. 24, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) is proud to announce it has been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for 2016—the sixth consecutive year BDC has won the distinction.

"We are very proud to be recognized for our efforts to make BDC a progressive and inclusive workplace," says Mary Karamanos, Senior Vice President, Human Resources at BDC. "Our mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed and take their business to the next level. A diverse and supportive work environment brings out the best in our teams, and this also benefits the businesses we work with."

Last November, Mediacorp also named BDC one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2016, the 10th consecutive year the Bank has won this prestigious designation. And on February 4, BDC was also recognized as one of Montreal's Top Employers.

Mediacorp's editors chose the 2016 award winners after a detailed assessment of the human resources practices and operations of thousands of large and small employers from a range of industries across Canada. Employers were compared in key areas, including the physical workplace; work atmosphere and social aspects; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
