Who made the list? BY Emily Douglas 17 Sep 2020 Share COVID-19 may be hampering our lives, but it won’t stop our celebrations. Last night the Canadian HR Awards went virtual – hosting over 1,000 attendees from all across the world. Making that transition from an in-person event to an online ceremony meant that HRD could incorporate so much more into the experience. From live panel discussions with globally recognized leaders, virtual peer-to-peer networking, and insightful acceptance speeches, Canadian HR Awards 2020 was a roaring success. HRD Canada wants to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended, our special sponsors and - of course – the illustrious winners. Here’s a list of the Gold and Silver winners from each category: The O.C.Tanner Award for Lifetime Achievement in the HR Industry Dr. Melanie Peacock – Past President, Mount Royal Faculty Association; Associate Professor, Bissett School of Business Best Labour & Employment Boutique Law Firm Whitten & Lublin – Gold Rudner Law – Silver Best Talent Management Strategy Revera – Gold Centurion Asset Management – Silver Most Read 'I will fire you on the spot': Biden's warning for staff Mandatory vaccination policies for employees: Enforceable or a shot in the dark?
