TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - HomeEquity Bank, provider of the CHIP Reverse Mortgage, is pleased to announce it has been recognized in the Waterstone Human Capital Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures list for the first time. Canada's Most Admired Corporate Cultures is a national program, now in its 19th year, that annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having cultures that have helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

"Being recognized as one of Canada's Most Admired Corporate Cultures is a testament to our team and their commitment to live our values every day with each other and with our customers," says Steven Ranson, HomeEquity Bank President and Chief Executive Officer. "I look forward to continuing to work together to fulfill our purpose of helping Canadian homeowners aged 55 plus enjoy a financially secure retirement in the home they love."

In 2021 HomeEquity Bank experienced an increased need for new talent to support its record-breaking volumes and exceeded growth expectations. Amidst pandemic uncertainty, it surpassed $1B in reverse mortgage originations (a 28% increase over 2020) and growth continues through 2022 as Canadian homeowners continue to seek retirement income solutions by accessing the equity in their home. To meet the demand for new and diverse talent, the Schedule 1 bank extended recruitment capacity and increased head count by more than seven per cent.

"HomeEquity Bank supports a dynamic culture, always with people at its core. To ensure this, we emphasize inclusion, flexibility and community," says Sherry Dondo, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. "The people-focused culture we embrace is immediately evident to new employees and yes, we are hiring."

"At Waterstone we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it's your organization's single greatest asset," says Marty Parker, President and CEO of Waterstone Human Capital and Chair of the Canada's Most Admired™ program. "The 2022 award recipients demonstrate that putting culture at the center of your strategy drives growth and accelerates performance. They actively craft high-performance cultures that drive extraordinary results and serve as an inspiration for others who want to do the same."

This latest accolade come on the heels of HomeEquity Bank being named a recipient of the Canadian Mortgage Professional (CMP) Best Employers Award for the past two years, achieving over 80% satisfaction on CMP's employee survey, and being recognized as an Excellence Awardee for the Wealth Professional Employer of Choice Award 2022. HomeEquity Bank was also named as one of Canada's Top Growing Companies by the Globe and Mail Report on Business for the third time in 2022.
