MONTREAL, Nov. 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proud to announce it has been named to the list of the "50 Best Employers in Canada" for a ninth year. This distinction is especially meaningful, as it reflects employees' appreciation of our organization and the work environment we provide for them.
The best employer ranking is compiled every year by Aon Hewitt, a consulting firm recognized for the quality of its research on workplace environments, as a way to measure employee engagement across the country. It is based on an opinion survey of employees, leaders and human resources professionals of participating businesses.
"Participating in this survey since it was first introduced has enabled us to continually improve ourselves as it provides valuable insight into what our employees think and the aspects we need to work on," stated Lynn Jeanniot, Executive Vice-President - Human Resources and Corporate Affairs. "Our objective is simple: to continue offering all employees an engaging and stimulating work environment that is conducive to professional development."
This latest achievement, which reflects the commitment of National Bank's 20,000 employees, comes on the heels of several other distinctions the Bank has received in 2013, including:
- Montreal's Top Employers (Mediacorp Canada)
- Canada's Best Diversity Employers (Mediacorp Canada)
- Best Employer for New Canadians (Mediacorp Canada)
- World's strongest banks (Bloomberg Markets magazine)
- Carbon CareTM certification (Enviro-access)
