CIBC once again named a Top Employer for young Canadians

 Recognized for outstanding programs committed to Canada's younger workforce  TORONTO, April 28, 2014 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) has once again been  named one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People by Mediacorp Canada Inc.  "CIBC is honoured to continue to be recognized for helping younger workers  achieve their full potential," says Jacqueline Moss, Executive Vice-President,  Human Resources, CIBC. "This award acknowledges the many programs and  initiatives we have designed specifically for Canada's younger workforce,  which give them opportunities to gain hands-on experience and develop  transferable skills in a diverse and engaging workplace to help them build  their careers."  The award, managed by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers,  recognizes companies that offer younger workers exceptional professional  opportunities; attractive perks and benefits; and ongoing career development  programs as they transition from school to work.  Since 2010, the number of graduate, co-op, and summer hires recruited by CIBC  has increased by almost 70 per cent. A key initiative that makes CIBC one of  Canada's Top Employers for Young People is its Human Resources Development  Program. The program provides upcoming graduates of a Masters of Business  Administration or Human Resources Masters related program, who have a minimum  of three years of work experience, an opportunity to gain exposure and access  to leading professionals in the industry by rotating through four key HR areas  in the bank: human resource consulting, employee relations, resourcing, and  projects and change management. CIBC's recently launched GenNext program was  also recognized for building leadership skills by providing younger employees  with opportunities to volunteer in the community.  As part of the bank's overall commitment to building stronger communities,  CIBC also supports access to education for younger workers through scholarship  funding, skills training and mentorship programs. In 2013, CIBC committed $12  million to Canadian universities and colleges, of which more than $9 million  went to post-secondary bursaries and scholarships.  Over the past year, CIBC has also been recognized for several other  industry-best practices, including:            --  One of Canada's Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp;         --  One of Canada's Best Diversity Employers by Mediacorp;         --  One of Canada's Top Employers for Canadians Over 40 by             Mediacorp;         --  One of Canada's 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ by Achievers;         --  The strongest bank in Canada and North America and the             third-strongest bank in the world by Bloomberg             Markets magazine;         --  Among the Top 10 Safest Banks in North America by Global             Finance magazine;         --  A recipient of three innovation awards for the CIBC Mobile             Payment App from ACT Canada;         --  One of Canada's best 50 corporate citizens by Corporate             Knights; and,         --  Included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the             12th consecutive year.
