EDMONTON – CWB Financial Group (CWB) is proud to be recognized as number 20 on this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada. Receiving the honour among hundreds of participating employers headquartered in Canada, it marks the third straight year that CWB has placed within the top 50, and the first time it has climbed into the top 20, moving up from number 28 in 2021. Our continued rise on this list, after premiering in 2020, is powered by a people first culture that ensures our employees be and feel heard, promotes inclusivity and diverse viewpoints, and inspires collaboration and innovation on our way to becoming the best full-service bank for business owners in Canada.
“This award is for our over 2,600 employees across Canada who continue to find new ways to go above and beyond for each other and our clients,” said Chris Fowler, CWB’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our values drive us to constantly seek feedback and suggestions from our teams before developing plans, and while we’re proud of how our people responded through COVID-19, our focus now turns to designing the future of work at CWB. That includes implementing the flexibility and collaboration that all of our employees are asking for, while continuing to meet our clients’ needs. People want to be present for the connections that count most, and many prioritize a healthy work-life balance now more than ever. As we expand CWB’s presence across Canada, enhancing our people first culture will be essential in strengthening CWB’s position as a destination for top talent.”
The 2022 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee driven and represents multiple industries and sizes of organizations. Seventy-five percent of each organization’s score is based on confidential employee feedback, from the globally recognized Trust Index® Survey. The remaining twenty-five percent is based on quality, quantity and effectiveness of the programs and policies which support their employees and corporate culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. This year’s list captures the experience and sentiment of 130,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 500,000 Canadian employees.
