National Bank Once Again Among Greater Toronto's Best Employers

MONTREAL, Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - National Bank is proud to be listed 
among Greater Toronto's Best Employers for the third 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. 
"Through their active participation in the One client, one bank business 
development strategy we have been pursuing since 2008, GTA employees are 
helping to roll out the red carpet for all our clients. An engaging work 
environment enables us not only to recruit and retain top talent, but also to 
offer clients a distinctive client experience," emphasized Louis Vachon, 
President and Chief Executive Officer of National Bank.

human resources professionals of participating businesses. The Bank uses the 
insight gained from its results to enhance its human resources practices and 
remain a top employer.
