April 14, 2010 – For the second consecutive year RBC has been named one of the "Best Workplaces in Canada" in an annual study by the Great Place to Work Institute Canada and The Globe and Mail.
"This recognition is a reflection of our commitment to be an employer of choice, where we win together as an organization and as individuals," says Zabeen Hirji, Chief Human Resources Officer. "With our shared values and common vision everyone contributes to our strong culture of employee engagement and helps to provide a foundation for all to succeed."
The "Best Workplaces in Canada" study is primarily based on an employee survey that measures the level of credibility, respect, fairness, 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.
This year's winners were announced in a special national report in The Globe and Mail on April 13.
