TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2023 /CNW/ - Scotiabank is proud to be named as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People 2023 by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the third year in a row.

The award recognizes employers that offer the nation's best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers. Organizations on the list are considered Canada's leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.

This year, Scotiabank was recognized for several initiatives aimed at helping young people develop the skills to thrive, including a dedicated global student committee that offers workshops and skills development, up to $10,000 in tuition subsidies for job-related courses each year for participants of the Talent Incubators for Leaders of Tomorrow program, extensive student orientation, as well as unique training and development opportunities.

"At Scotiabank, we work hard to create an inclusive environment where every employee feels supported, valued and empowered to deliver in a meaningful way for our communities, our customers, and each other," said David Noel, Senior Vice President, Global HR Services. "It is critical that we foster the next generation of talent, and we're committed to creating programs for students and recent grads that enable their success in the workplace."

Scotiabank launched the Talent Incubators for Leaders of Tomorrow (TILT) series, a collection of high-performance rotational programs designed specifically for recent graduates joining Scotiabank. The TILT Framework offers participants career development, a community dedicated to orientation, clubs and networking events, and mentorship.

Through customized workshops, courses, executive masterclasses, capstone projects and more, TILT programs are designed to ensure best-in-class learning, development and overall experience for associates. Programs are available for a variety of business areas such as Technology, Global Capital Markets, Commercial Banking, Strategic Functions and Global Operations. TILT also offers programs Focused on Women in Leadership Development and the Indigenous Peoples Development Program. Since the program launched in 2019, over 350 recent graduates have completed rotational programs.

In 2020, Scotiabank also made the decision to remove the resume requirement as part of the Bank's campus hiring program. Shifting from resumes that focus on experience to psychometric assessments that reveal skill, the Bank is recruiting more diverse talent, with an increase in the number of women hired by 50 per cent and visible minorities by 60 per cent over the past three years. In addition, the Bank has nearly doubled retention of campus hires across the organization during the same time period.

Each year, Scotiabank recruits approximately 1,000 students as interns or as part of its graduate development program, and about 250 students per year into its rotational programs designed specifically for new graduates.
