EDMONTON, Nov. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - CWB Financial Group is proud to announce that our organization is on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces in Alberta.
"Great Place to Work® sets the standard of what it means to be a great workplace. It is the best benchmark for measuring the best employers in Canada, including in the financial services sector in Canada" says Chris Fowler, President and CEO of CWB Financial Group. "CWB is a special place to work – and our people tell us that. We're incredibly proud to be recognized on this list, because it's our people who have put us there. Each day, our employees come to work engaged and passionate about providing an exceptional and proactive experience to our clients.
