March 12, 2013 — For the third consecutive year, RBC has been recognized as one of the best places to work for new Canadians. This national competition honours employers that offer innovative programs for new Canadians as well as an inclusive workplace where individual identity, diverse perspectives and ideas are valued and respected.
"This award reflects that diversity is one of RBC's core values and a reason why RBC is a leading employer of choice in Canada," says Zabeen Hirji, RBC's Chief Human Resources Officer. "When you have talented people with diverse experiences and perspectives working together to achieve a shared vision, it's rewarding for all of us and a source of competitive advantage. It enables us to deliver better service and advice to our increasingly diverse clients."
The Best Employers for New Canadians competition is held annually by Mediacorp Canada Inc. This award recognizes the nation's best employers for recent immigrants that offer programs to assist new Canadians in making the transition to a new workplace and a new life in Canada.
