EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 21, 2013) - Canadian Western Bank (CWB) (TSX:CWB) is proud to once again be recognized as one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures™, following its inclusion on the same list in 2010.

"We're thrilled to be recognized together with these other great Canadian companies that understand the value of a strong, positive organizational culture," says Kelly Blackett, CWB's senior vice president of human resources. "This acknowledgement confirms that our commitment to finding, hiring and retaining skilled employees whose values align with those of our organization is a strategic advantage. There is no question that it has played an integral role in our success to date."

The study on Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ was created by Waterstone Human Capital to distinguish great workplaces where culture impacts performance. The winning organizations are selected by a panel of experts based on six measurement criteria, including: vision and leadership; recruitment and hiring for fit; cultural alignment and measurement; retention, rewards and recognition; organizational performance; and corporate social responsibility.

"Canadian Western Bank is an exceptional organization that has strong performance and a great reputation in a challenging industry," said Marty Parker, CEO of Waterstone and Chair of the Canada's 10 program. "They are committed to recruiting for cultural fit, and the people in the business genuinely care about each other and their clients. This is one of the greatest culture success stories our program has ever seen."
