April 2011– RBC has been recognized as one of the best places to work for new Canadians by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. The award honours employers that offer innovative programs for new Canadians as well as an inclusive workplace where individual identity, diverse perspectives and ideas are considered and respected.
This award reflects our strong belief that diversity is a competitive advantage, says Zabeen Hirji, RBC's Chief Human Resources Officer. The more we understand how enriching and empowering a truly inclusive company can be, the more we will continue to innovate and adapt, develop new market opportunities and foster new relationships that allow our people, our clients and our communities to prosper as a result.
This competition is held annually by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as a supplement of Canada's Top 100 Employers, which RBC was also recognized for in 2011.
Earlier this year, RBC was also recognized for its exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs by being named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers.
