RBC is not just bricks and mortar, or vaults and computers. It is first and foremost approximately 80,000 people working in more than 50 countries. All are connected by shared values, a sense of responsibility towards others, a commitment to doing what’s best for our clients and a drive for excellence. Our employees make RBC a great place to work.
We believe we have a responsibility to help our employees reach their goals in a fair and respectful workplace. But no two employees have identical needs, so our rewards program is built to provide flexibility and choice and to promote a shared accountability for success. We aim to provide an enriching employee experience with:
We believe that the differences that come through diversity are good. In fact, diversity is one of our core values and a key ingredient of our business strategy. By embracing diversity, we fully engage the talents of all our people, meet the needs of more clients around the world, and build stronger relation¬ships in the many communities we serve. Our Diversity Blueprint is our plan for promoting diversity and inclusion at RBC and beyond.
One of the secrets of our success is our fundamental appreciation of people and their contributions. We believe that winning together as individuals, as teams and as an organization requires a shared sense on purpose, built on open communication, mutual respect and personal accountability for results. Our managers around the world receive extensive training in people management and we continually evolve our workplace to ensure employees have the opportunity to thrive and grow. As well, in Canada, 77% of RBC employees own shares.
RBC employees are passionate volunteers. As financial services professionals, we share our valuable knowledge by participating on not–for–profit boards and committees. As community members, we dedicate countless hours to causes we believe in. RBC supports these efforts by fostering a culture of giving through our Employee Volunteer Grants program.
This program includes grants to individual employees
and teams that volunteer outside of work hours.
Additionally, the RBC Community Spirit Award
honours individual employees for their outstanding
leadership and dedication to making a positive
difference in their community. Since 1999,
we have made over 22,000 grants and
donated over $11 million to celebrate our
employees’ volunteer efforts.
