TORONTO, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - RBC has been selected as one of Canada's
"Top 100 Employers" by Mediacorp Canada Inc. in its annual survey of
To develop this year's Top 100 list, Mediacorp examined the recruitment
histories of over 75,000 employers across Canada. From this initial
group, editors invited 25,000 employers across the country to apply.
The recognition program looks at people practices and was based on an
assessment of many aspects of the workplace including training and
career development, total rewards, employee communications, diversity,
performance management and community involvement.
"The stars in this story are RBC employees, who make the difference for
our clients and RBC a great place to work," said Zabeen Hirji, chief
human resources officer at RBC. "This recognition reflects a source of
our strength - the combination of our employees' ongoing commitment to
RBC's vision, their pride in being a part of the RBC team, and the
company's commitment to employee success. Together we have all created
a workplace where both what we achieve and how we achieve it matters."
RBC was recognized for rewards that go above and beyond traditional
compensation, such as flexible work arrangements, a flexible health
benefits plan, and career development and opportunities. Employees
don't have identical needs and priorities so RBC's programs are
designed with the flexibility to enable employees to achieve their
professional goals and reach their full potential.
The Canada's Top 100 Employers competition is the largest editorial project of its kind in Canada. This
year's winners are being announced today in a special editorial
supplement in The Globe and Mail.
