TORONTO, November 17, 2011 - RBC has again been recognized as having one of the most admired corporate cultures in Canada in the annual study by Waterstone Human Capital Ltd.
The importance of our culture to our success has long been recognized inside RBC. "Behind all the numbers that measure our performance is a culture based on strong values, where we stress service, teamwork, responsibility, diversity and integrity," said President and CEO Gordon M Nixon in his address to shareholders (March 2011). "Our people put into action every day our vision to always earn the right to be our clients' first choice."
The Most Admired Cultures program is in its seventh year and annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having a culture that has helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.
Progressive policies, a commitment to diversity and inclusion, and a strong culture of employee engagement help make RBC a top employer. We provide an enriching employee experience with competitive compensation, flexible benefit programs, training and career development opportunities, and support for work/life effectiveness initiatives. These help us to both attract and retain talented people and ensure we win together.
In 2009, RBC was inducted into the Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures Hall of Fame, for having "been repeatedly recognized by the Canadian leadership community for having a phenomenal corporate culture."
