Einstein once said that imagination is more important than knowledge – but in a sector like HR, you really do need both. Dominated by disruption and ruled by constant change, HR leaders have to learn fast in order to get ahead. HRDC’s annual Rising Stars list spotlights 22 young HR professionals who have done just that. After receiving a vast list of nominees, the HRDC team whittled the nominations down to those who we believe represent the most promising new HR talent in Canada this year.
It’s no secret that in today’s competitive market, younger employees are rising through the ranks more quickly than ever before. From navigating new hires to future-proofing their business plans, these Rising Stars are taking on responsibilities that belie their relatively limited experience. Recognizing HR professionals from a wide variety of sub-sections, HRDC’s 2018 Rising Stars list is as inclusive as it is diverse, indicating that the future of HR in Canada is in very good hands.
