Editor’s note: This is the sixth of a seven-part series taking a look at some of the best practices of Canada’s award-winning employers. Here, we take a look at health and family-friendly benefits at TD Bank Financial Group and why they make it such a great place to work.

Every year, TD Bank Financial Group asks employees to name two tangible things they would like to see improved within the company. Typically, the Toronto-based bank receives about 20,000 suggestions. Two consistent themes from that survey — more flexible work hours and improved benefits — have translated into successful policies that have earned TD Bank an exceptional rating in the area of health and family-friendly benefits.

“That’s all part of our strategy to make sure we are viewed by our employees as a great place to work,” says Peter McAdam, vice-president of consumer experience. “This ties back to our efforts to make sure we have the most engaged workforce out there.”
