TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC    SEHK:945 

TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Today, for the second consecutive year, Manulife Financial was recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, an honour distinguishing the company as one of the country's best places to work.

"We are honoured to be recognized again as an industry leader," said Stephani Kingsmill, Executive Vice-President of Human Resources and Communications at Manulife Financial. "We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining top talent and we are proud that our global best practices are being recognized in Canada."

Now in its 14 th year, Canada's Top 100 Employer is an annual competition that evaluates and identifies the country's leading companies and organizations for attracting and retaining employees. The competition focuses on eight key areas: physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

"Our focus on providing employees with opportunities for growth and development, competitive compensation and flexible health benefit packages goes a long way toward making Manulife one of Canada's Top Employers," stated Ms. Kingsmill. "Our employees are also actively involved in their communities and we encourage their volunteerism through our forward-thinking policies and programs."

Each year Manulife invites employees across Canada to take a paid day off to volunteer for a charity of their choice. Other company programs targeted at promoting volunteerism include: Helping Hands - grants for organizations where employees volunteer 25 or more hours and PowerMatch - grants where Manulife matches an employee's fundraising dollars up to $150. In Canada, employees donated 34,000 volunteer hours in 2011, an increase of 41 per cent from 2010.

Manulife Financial takes pride in its training and development initiatives. The company encourages ongoing employee development with tuition subsidies, in-house training, online programs, mentoring, and career planning, as well as financial bonuses for the completion of specific courses. Given its global presence, the company also offers exciting and challenging opportunities for employees looking to advance their leadership capabilities abroad.
