Save the date! Canadian HR Awards are back

2020 has been a year of monumental change. COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst for remote working, digitisation and technological advancements.

Our upcoming Canadian HR Awards has also evolved. As social gatherings are still banded, we’ve gone virtual – bringing you all the glitz and glamour of the ceremony to your very own home.

Even tough we won’t be able to celebrate in person (well, not just yet), HRD is committed to recognising the industry’s best and brightest stars.

On September 16th, at 12pm, HRD will be hosting our very first online, virtual and remote awards ceremony. Registration is free – so,  dust off your black tie, stock up on your beverage of choice and get ready for the virtual celebration of the year.

“With all of 2020’s ups and downs, it’s an honour to be leading this year’s recognition of the so many great achievements by Canada’s top HR professionals,” Heather Haslam, Vice President, Marketing, ADP Canada, told HRD.

“While ADP has traditionally found ourselves presenting these awards and cheering on our colleagues in person, this year, we look forward to coming together and celebrating as a community digitally.”

Featuring 170 finalists competing for over 20 awards, this year’s event is bigger than ever. We’re bringing you exclusive panel discussions with leading industry names, the opportunity to connect with peers online, and the chance to win $250 by sharing a #HRAwardsCA photo of yourself celebrating in style on the day.

HRD is known for our innovative awards – with last years event being our most successful to date. Speaking at last years event, Cheryl Kerrigan, VP of people at BlueCat – winner of The Ultimate Software Award for Best Workplace Culture, revealed the joy of being successful.

“This is what I’ve worked for throughout my whole career,” she explained.

“When you can change a culture and make it great it’s a game-changer in being able to attract and retain the best talent out there. I am beyond delighted – and I’m super proud of my team who worked hard every single day to achieve this.”
