TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC SEHK:945

TORONTO, Dec. 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Manulife has been recognized by the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards with a Best Places to Work award. The Glassdoor Awards are based on voluntary and anonymous feedback from employees. Manulife was ranked number nine of Canada's top 25 Best Places to Work in 2016.

More than 800,000 company reviews were submitted to Glassdoor during the eligibility timeframe. Glassdoor relied solely on the feedback of Manulife's Canada-based current and former employees who voluntarily shared their thoughts about Manulife on Glassdoor's website over the past year.  Employees complete an anonymous company review that captures their overall job and company satisfaction, including their best reasons to work at their company, and what needs improvement.  The quality, quantity, and consistency of reviews lead Glassdoor to its final decision.

"I am delighted with this recognition, and would like to thank our employees for taking the time to provide their feedback about what it's like to work at Manulife," said Donald Arthur Guloien, President & CEO, Manulife. "This award is a reflection of the insights and perspectives of both present and former employees and their direct acknowledgement that we are moving in the right direction as we continue to strengthen our culture and workplace experience."

Manulife has also been recognized as the most Trusted Insurance Brand in Canada by the University of Victoria's Gustavson Brand Trust Index, was named one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People for four consecutive years and was named one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2015 by Waterstone Human Capital. Donald Arthur Guloien was also named one of Glassdoor's Highest Rated CEOs in Canada for 2015.
