Citi: 100 Years in Canada

In Canada, our history of enabling progress dates back a century.

We use our global scale and expertise to offer Canadians and multinational clients alike unrivaled access, empowering them with the ability to adapt and compete in a rapidly changing global economy. As one of the country’s largest foreign financial institutions, our legacy is one of innovation and exemplary citizenship.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Citi values a work environment where diversity is embraced, where people are promoted on their merits, and where people treat each other with mutual respect and dignity.

Some of the key programs that support Citi’s diversity strategy include initiatives designed to enable progress of women, including the establishment of women’s networks across the world, and scholarship programs for diverse candidates, including students with disabilities and indigenous students. Cultural
diversity is also an important part of the workplace, and Citi takes every opportunity to celebrate the rich background of its employees through various celebratory events throughout the year.

What We Expect of Our Leaders

Citi’s Leadership Standards encapsulate the measureable skills, abilities and knowledge that we should demonstrate to be successful Citi Leaders; develop our people, drive value for clients, work as partners, champion progress, live our values and deliver results.

Citi’s commitment to attracting, developing and retaining the best talent is instilled in all employees, from the global CEO to the new analyst. We are committed to being a company where the best people work, where opportunities to develop are widely available, where innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit are valued, and where a healthy work-life balance is encouraged.

How We Support Development and Talent

Citi Canada has several talent and development programs that support current and future leaders. Delivered both locally and globally, these programs are designed to deliver organizational capability through our leadership standards. Supporting employees’ development is also fostered through mentorship programs, high-potential development programs and new manager programs.

Citi offers an online careers site, which allows employees to search for available positions across divisions and regions around the globe. More than 29% of roles are filled internally, and Citi continues to foster internal mobility through “job blast” emails that allow employees to view current vacancies. In addition, a robust employee referral fee has fostered talent partners in employees.

Citi’s online Global Learning Management System (GLMS) houses more than 10,000 web-based courses related to professional and personal development and technology skills. Citi continues to evolve its learning culture through new learning solutions, including video-based learning, to provide employees with ongoing, just-in-time development.

Supporting employees’ development is also fostered through other formal programs, including mentorship programs, high-potential development programs and new manager programs. Strong leadership is key to enabling progress at Citi.

Why We Serve Our Communities

We recognize that the challenges communities face are complex, and to enable progress no single organization can do it alone. Citi collaborates with public agencies and community organizations to develop innovative and scalable solutions that help families achieve financial empowerment. Citi provides its employees with internal programs and opportunities that encourage participation and engagement in all our charitable endeavours.

We take a “More than Philanthropy” approach to our community giving by going beyond just financial contributions. Through programs such as Citi Skills Marathons, Global Community Day, Citi Canada Charity Golf Tournament and our national United Way Campaign we use our talent and expertise to enable progress for our community partners across Canada.
