Thanks to this prestigious acknowledgement, the bank is one 65 top employers to be recognized in Montreal.

About the competition

First published in 2006, Montréal’s Top Employers is an annual honour arranged by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes employers in Greater Montréal who are leaders in offering exceptional places to work based on industry standards.

Employers are evaluated using the following eight criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are then compared to competitors to determine which organization offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Reasons for BNP Paribas’ selection

The Montréal’s Top Employers highlights the efforts made by BNP Paribas in Canada in the following areas:

  • BNP Paribas provided a $500 taxable benefit to help employees set up home offices at the outset of the pandemic and is developing a new flexible work model, which includes permanent options for remote work, digital tools for collaborative work, and a pilot “No Meetings in the Afternoon” on Friday program
  • BNP Paribas invests significantly in employee development, offering tuition subsidies of up to $4,500 annually for courses taken externally as well as subsidies for professional accreditation
