A total of 20 awards will be handed out on the night, including Canadian Rising Star of the Year, Canadian HR Rising Star of the Year and Lifetime Achievement in the HR Industry.
Last year, DST consulting’s Philip Wilson picked up the award for Lifetime Achievement in the HR Industry – an experience he described as “humbling.”
“I was honoured to receive the prestigious award in front of my peers, family and friends,” he told HRM. “
The gala was truly amazing and I was humbled by the grandeur of it as I entered the room,” he added.
Team and organizational awards will also be up for grabs including the award for Best Workplace Culture, Best Employer Branding and Best Learning and Development Strategy.
