MONTREAL, Feb. 4, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proud to be ranked for the sixth consecutive year among Montreal's Top Employers, a regional edition of Canada's Top 100 Employers presented annually by Toronto publisher Mediacorp Canada Inc. The list was created in 2006 to recognize Montreal-based businesses that offer an exceptional work environment.
"National Bank has always been committed to taking care of its employees and offering them an engaging work environment in which they can achieve their full potential," stated Lynn Jeanniot, Executive Vice-President – Human Resources and Corporate Affairs. "Our programs and practices have been established with this in mind. They promote a corporate culture that fosters dialogue and places great importance on the development of each and every employee. That's how we succeed in creating a rewarding work environment."
According to Mediacorp's survey, National Bank stands out for its programs supporting employee involvement in the community, its competitive total compensation package and its retirement planning and transition initiatives.
With its thousands of employees in the Montreal area, National Bank actively contributes to the city's vitality. The Bank has participated in the Centraide of Greater Montreal campaign for several decades and encourages its employees and retirees to support the organization's fight against poverty and exclusion. The Bank is a proud partner in many activities and promotes employee involvement in city fundraising events, such as the Urban Duathlon in support of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation. Thanks to the concerted efforts of numerous teams at the Bank, its head office, the National Bank Tower on De La Gauchetière street in Montreal, was awarded the LEED® Canada for Existing Buildings certification. This prestigious distinction is testimony to National Bank's commitment to offering a workplace that promotes sustainable development.
