MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Nov. 7, 2017 /CNW/ -- Mercedes-Benz Financial Services Canada announced today that it has again been honoured by the Great Place to Work® Institute, with placement on the 2017 list of Best Workplaces in the Financial Services & Insurance Industry in Canada.
"As a financial services company, trust is a cornerstone of our business and is something we never take for granted," said Stefan Karrenbauer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services Canada. "Of all the feedback we receive through the Great Place to Work survey, ranking highly on the Trust Index© and knowing that our employees return that trust to us is the highest compliment."
To be eligible for list of Best Workplaces in the Financial Services & Insurance Industry, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, have a minimum of 15 employees and work primarily in the industry. Among that group, the "Best" list is based on the overall Trust Index score, which is built on the dimensions of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
"We are dedicated to fostering an environment of trust and a culture that is not only fun, but also values and embraces the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of every team member. Each year, we evaluate the survey results for opportunities to grow. This year's results, with an 89 percent in the Trust Index, show that our efforts continue to make a difference for our employees," added Karrenbauer.

In 2016, the company was, for the fourth time since 2012, ranked in the top-ten in the "Large & Multinational Companies" category on the list of the 100 Best Workplaces in Canada by the Great Place to Work Institute. Last year, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services Canada, Daimler Financial Services AG, was ranked fifth out of 25 companies on the list of the World's Best Multinational Workplaces.
