National Bank Once Again Among Greater Toronto’s Best Employers

Montreal, 29 November 2012 -

National Bank is proud to be listed among Greater Toronto’s Best Employers for the third year in a row. This prestigious list is compiled every year by Aon Hewitt, which recognizes businesses in the Greater Toronto Area that stand out for their human resources practices that engage employees.

“Through their active participation in the One client, one bank business development strategy we have been pursuing since 2008, GTA employees are helping to roll out the red carpet for all our clients. An engaging work environment enables us not only to recruit and retain top talent, but also to offer clients a distinctive client experience,” emphasized Louis Vachon, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank.

National Bank has been taking part in Aon Hewitt’s survey since it was first launched. The rankings are based on the opinions of the employees, leaders and human resources professionals of participating businesses. The Bank uses the insight gained from its results to enhance its human resources practices and remain a top employer.

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 2012, including:

- Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures (Waterstone Human Capital)
- 50 Best Employers in Canada (Aon Hewitt)
- Lipper Awards for its mutual funds
- Canada’s Best Diversity Employers (Mediacorp Canada)
- World’s Strongest Banks (Bloomberg Markets)
- Best Canadian Brands (Interbrand)
