Top Employer 2013

Scotiabank Does It Again...

'Top Employer' Three Years in a Row!

Scotiabank and Trust Cayman has once again copped the award for being top employer in the large category of business for the Cayman Islands. The award was presented to the Banking group recently by The Cayman Islands Society of Human Resources Professionals, CISHRP at an awards presentation ceremony held at he Ritz Carlton. In 2013 the HR body rebranded the official recognition as the "Best Place to Work" award and says that recipients are identified as organizations that demonstrate high levels of employee engagement and organization culture. At the heart of our definition of a 'Top Employer' is a place where employees "trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with" explained CISHRP.

Scotiabank Cayman's Human Resources Director, Lovenia Ebanks says Scotiabank is delighted to have received this award for the third time in a row. "We received our first award in 2011 for having a strong staff focus, and we have continued as a management team to make strides in moving our employees forward in their personal and professional development. We foster a culture of constant training, employee engagement and performance management. That's what makes Scotiabank such a great place to work, year after year!"

Lovenia Ebanks added that Scotiabank believes the company's success locally is as a result of the superior team we have serving our customers. "We have also been recognized internationally as a "Best Bank" by the international financial industry because of our mantra 'one team, one goal'. We pledge to continue our mission to improve team capacity, employee training and support leadership development as we deliver top solutions that meet our customers financial needs."

Speaking about the key strengths that make Scotiabank one of the Best Places to Work in Cayman, Doug Cochrane, Managing Director for at the Bank says that all employees are beaming with pride at this acknowledgment. " We are confident that this awards is a testament of our policies that not only compensate staff well for the work they do, but is as a result of the strategic programmes that track performance management, help to shape our staff career paths and expose them to cross – training in different areas. This expands their skills set allowing them to excel as they advance in their careers and personal lives."

As a global organization, with a footprint in over 50 countries across the world, Scotiabank, also strongly believes in embracing diversity and equal opportunities for all its employees. The Bank has also been strategically highlighting female advancement in Cayman and throughout its international network.
