Ten banks and financial services firms rank among the 2021 list of Best Workplaces in Canada. The annual list recognises the 50 Best Workplaces in Canada with more than 1,000 employees.

ATB Financial ranks as the top financial services firm by employees with RBC top ranked major bank.

The 2021 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. Specifically, it is based on two criteria. Two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results. The remaining one-third results from an in-depth review of the organisation’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organisation from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of over 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
