CWB named among the best employers in Canada for eight consecutive years

EDMONTON, November 7, 2013 – Canadian Western Bank (CWB) is pleased to announce the achievement of its eighth consecutive year as one of the Best Employers in Canada, improving its ranking to 32 compared to 33 in 2013.

The Best Employers in Canada study measures the level of employee engagement at participating organizations and is based on results from a national survey conducted by Aon Hewitt. Notably, organizations with high employee engagement enjoy tangible benefits, including a greater ability to attract and retain key talent.

“We’re extremely proud of our consistent recognition as an employer of choice and will continue to keep our employees happy, healthy and engaged by providing the tools and resources they need to succeed,” said Kelly Blackett, CWB’s senior vice president of human resources. “Feedback from this survey helps us to create and maintain a rewarding and meaningful work environment for our employees, which ultimately drives our ability to offer exceptional customer service and continuously grow as an organization.”

CWB’s affiliate company, National Leasing, was also recognized as an employer of choice today, ranking 27th on the list of Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada.
