April 6 2009 – RBC has been named one of the "Best Workplaces in Canada" for 2009 in an annual study by the Great Place to Work Institute Canada and The Globe and Mail.
"This recognition reflects our continuing commitment to be an employer of choice, where people are valued and we win together as an organization and individuals" says Zabeen Hirji, Chief Human Resources Officer.
The "Best Workplaces in Canada" study is primarily based on an employee survey that measures the level of trust, pride, and camaraderie in the workplace.
Six principles define what RBC stands for as an employer and guide ongoing efforts to support the mutual success of employees, clients and shareholders. These include a commitment to professional growth and excellence in people management and a passion for putting our clients first.
"Shared values, a common vision and having trust in one's colleagues are essential ingredients for any organization that seeks to excel," says Zabeen. "We are committed to making this happen and keeping RBC a great place to work."
This year's winners were announced in a special national report in The Globe and Mail today.
