Globex Wins Best Workplaces 2009

    EDMONTON, April 9 /CNW/ - Globex Foreign Exchange Corporation, an
international leader in corporate and large-scale personal foreign currency
exchange transactions, is pleased to be named among the Best Workplaces in
Canada for 2009. Globex is pleased to place among other top recipients such as
Google Canada, RBC and Ernst & Young LLP.
    "As Co-President I am especially proud of our win as it is based
primarily on the feedback of our staff members (Globexers). As an employer, we
are committed to creating a great place for our staff to work by showing
appreciation of the effort and contributions of all Globexers. We strive to
empower, reward and recognize our people while fostering an atmosphere of
professional development and the opportunity for personal growth." says
Michael Oshry, Co- President of Globex Foreign Exchange.
    This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to
Work(R) Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria:
two-thirds of the total score comes from a 57-statement survey completed by a
random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about
their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an
in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR
policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the
organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the
workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five
trust-building dimensions of a great place to work(R): credibility, respect,
fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
    This year's list received over 230 nominations and approximately 30,000
employees participated in the 2009 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.

    Globex Foreign Exchange is an international leader in corporate foreign
exchange as well as large scale personal foreign currency exchange
