Waterstone, one of Canada’s executive search firm specializing in organizational culture, assessed CN’s leadership, organizational culture, corporate responsibility and innovation and selected CN for recognition from more than 600 nominated companies. Waterstone’s Board of Governors was impressed with CN’s successful transformation from the rail industry laggard to today’s rail industry leader. Very few companies have been able to achieve such a transformation.
Claude Mongeau, president and chief executive of CN, said: “We are very pleased with this recognition by Waterstone, which is testament to the passion and commitment of CN’s 23,000-strong team of railroaders.
“CN’s business agenda is shaped by what the company stands for: creating value for its customers and shareholders, delivering goods safely and sustainably, supporting the economies we serve, and connecting strongly with our employees.
“CN has experienced a remarkable transformational journey and will continue to pursue its role as a true backbone of the economy.”
In its category (enterprises with revenues on excess of $500 million), CN shared this recognition with Acklands-Grainger Inc., Cineplex Entertainment, LoyaltyOne, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited, National Bank, PCL Constructors Inc., TELUS, The Aldo Group, and Walmart Canada.
