TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - As one of Canada's largest employers, RBC has long recognized that career and personal success mean different things to different people. We emphasize flexibility and provide programs and options that address what's important to individual employees to help them achieve their professional goals and reach their full potential. Whether it is a focus on career advancement, skill development, the desire to contribute through corporate citizenship activities, or simply meaningful compensation and benefits, RBC has programs to meet these needs.
Once again RBC has earned a spot on Mediacorp Canada Inc.'s Canada's "Top 100 Employers" listing, an annual survey of Canadian businesses. RBC is being recognized for its efforts in creating a high performing, collaborative and inclusive workplace.
To develop this year's Top 100 list, Mediacorp considered more than 80,000 employers across Canada. The recognition program assesses many people practices including training and career development, total rewards, employee communications, diversity, performance management and community involvement.
"RBCers have created a workplace culture centred on the well-being of our clients, employees and the communities we serve," said Zabeen Hirji, chief human resources officer at RBC. "We are proud of being able to make a difference both individually and collectively, knowing that our contributions matter and we each have the opportunity to reach our potential."
RBC was recognized for our employee offerings that go above and beyond traditional compensation. Our in-house wellness program and our home fitness initiatives are best in class. These programs are complemented by comprehensive professional development programs and competitive compensation and benefits programs.
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 magazine co-published in the national edition of The Globe and Magazine.
