We were recognized for Most Effective Recruitment Strategy at the 2016 Canadian HR Awards last night in Toronto.
The annual gala was hosted by none other than Canadian lifestyle and celebrity reporter Ben Mulroney. “We are thrilled with the honour and humbled to be among the numerous best in class organizations all striving to make a difference. Traction on Demand's recruitment strategy is unique in that it focuses on cultural fit and intelligence ahead of skills, while also leveraging our own cloud-based recruiting app. This helps us discover the person behind the application and hire people who help strengthen our culture,” says Manu Varma, VP of Human Resources.
This was one of 19 awards handed out in organizational and individual categories, which were designed to ensure national recognition of both large and small organizations on their individual merits. Traction on Demand was also a finalist in the category of Canadian HR Champion (CEO). In 2015, Traction won the Innovative Use of Technology Award for a recruitment tool that was built by in-house developers on the Salesforce platform. The Canadian HR Awards brings together industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the HR profession, recognizing individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements in people management.
