Flexible work schedules, career development contribute to inclusion on
this exclusive list
TORONTO, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - Today, Capital One Canada has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers on Mediacorp's annual list that ranks the best companies to work for in the country. Capital One was recognized for a broad range of programs and policies that promote a positive associate experience. For example, Capital One offers flexible work options that combines new technology with unique workplace atmospheres to give associates the freedom to choose where and when they work.
"We believe that work is what you do, not where you go," said Nancy Icely, Vice President, Capital One Canada. "We give associates control over their own schedules, which is key in attracting, retaining and developing leaders. This culture of collaboration and flexibility is also a strategic business move that improves productivity and reduces real estate costs."
Capital One's programs include corporate support for volunteering and community engagement, a vigorous associate recognition program, and training and development opportunities. All of these factors contribute to 94% of Canadian associates stating that "Capital One is a great place to work."
Now entering its 10th year, Canada's Top 100 Employers is an annual competition to recognize Canada's best places to work. This project aims to identify the companies and organizations that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees.
A blue-ribbon academic advisory board oversees the selection criteria for each year's competition. The distinguished panel members, drawn from universities across Canada, have each written or edited a major HR textbook in Canada.
