“CIBC Mellon’s engaging and impactful employee experience is defined by its culture. Employees are empowered and given the support and resources to make a meaningful impact, both in and outside of the workplace,” said Maple Tam, Chief Human Resources Officer at CIBC Mellon. “Our talented team has continued to position our company, clients and stakeholders for success while supporting each other and our communities during this unprecedented year.  Even though we have been physically apart, we have remained connected and have worked together to strengthen our inclusive culture.  We are honoured to be recognized by Achievers for our commitment to cultivating a positive employee experience.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic presented a myriad of challenges for businesses and their workforce. But these unprecedented times also offered an opportunity for organizations to support their people. Companies that prioritized employee experience, recognition and employee voice have seen increased productivity, higher employee engagement and stronger loyalty,” said Jeff Cates, CEO and president at Achievers. “This year’s 50 Most Engaged winners embody what it means to be a “people-first” business and have proven how the prioritization of employee experience can help an organization withstand even the most difficult of times.”

A panel of 15 esteemed judges comprised of employee engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists, and influencers evaluated the applicants. Winners were selected based on Achievers’ Eight Elements of Employee Engagement®: Accountability & Performance, Belonging, Equity & Inclusion, Culture Alignment, Manager Empowerment, Professional & Personal Growth, Purpose & Leadership, Recognition & Rewards, and Wellbeing.
