National Bank Again Named One of Montreal’s Top Employers

Montreal, 1 February 2012 -

National Bank is proud to be among Montreal’s Top Employers, a regional edition of Canada’s Top 100 Employers presented annually by Toronto publisher Mediacorp Canada Inc. The regional edition was created in 2006 to recognize Montreal-based businesses that offer an exceptional work environment.

This is the second consecutive appearance on the list for National Bank. The Bank offers human resources policies attuned to employees’ needs and expectations, providing employees with a stimulating work environment where they can develop their potential to the fullest.

“National Bank believes its employees are one of its most valuable assets and it demonstrates this through its human resources management programs and policies,” noted Lynn Jeanniot, Executive Vice-President of Human Resources and Corporate Affairs at National Bank. “These measures have helped to strengthen team spirit and cooperation—important values at the Bank that contribute significantly to employee engagement. What makes our workplace truly exceptional is the commitment and motivation of our employees.”

Candidates may be named one of Montreal’s Top Employers by participating in the annual Canada's Top 100 Employers competition and are judged on eight key areas including training and skills development, employee communications, performance management and community involvement.

Mediacorp Canada Inc. examined the recruitment histories of more than 75,000 employers and invited over 12,500 organizations across the country to apply for the competition. National Bank was selected from among a group of over 2,750 participating companies.
