National Bank Once Again Among Greater Toronto's Top Employers

Montreal, 24 November 2011 - 

National Bank is proud to be listed among Greater Toronto's Top Employers for the second year in a row. This prestigious list is compiled every year by Aon Hewitt, which recognizes businesses in the Greater Toronto Area that stand out for their human resources practices that engage employees.

“This recognition is a testament to our commitment to implementing human resource management practices that meet the needs and expectations of our employees, throughout our offices, branches and subsidiaries across Canada,” said Pat Minicucci, Senior Vice President, Personal and Commercial Banking, Central, Western and Atlantic Canada, National Bank. “It is important that we maintain an engaging work environment to retain our most talented people but also to offer our clients superior service. This approach is beneficial for our employees, our clients and our shareholders, and helps us truly be one of the best employers in the country.”

National Bank has been participating in the GTA survey since it was first launched and uses its comprehensive results to improve its human resources practices, so as to remain one of the most engaging businesses. National Bank was also ranked one of Canada’s 50 best employers in 2012.

The list of Greater Toronto’s best employers is based on an opinion survey conducted with the employees, managers and human resources professionals of participating businesses.
