BURNABY, BC: September 21th, 2015 – At last week’s 2015 Canadian HR Awards Gala, Traction on Demand won the 2015 Award for Most Innovative Use of HR Technology. In addition to the technology category, Traction was a finalist for the Award for Best Employer Branding. As a piece of the process, Traction’s candidate application process leverages custom integration of several cloud-based technologies, including marketing automation to measure candidate engagement, social media integration, a digital e-signature platform and CRM software to manage the entire experience. Manu Varma, VP of HR for Traction was in Toronto to accept the award for Traction. “We are humbled to be included with so many innovative companies at the Canadian HR awards. Traction continues to find ways to redefine the way that businesses do business.” Traction’s CEO believes their recent recognition as the 21st fastest growing company in Canada can be heavily attributed to the HR team and technology in place. “Traction’s business model is built around the great people in our community – our employees, our customers and our partners. Traction has invested heavily in building out our HR processes so that we continue to find amazing and committed individuals who will help us grow our company in the right direction. Recently ranked as the 21st fastest growing company in Canada, it’s apparent our HR and hiring processes have been extremely effective.” The complete 2015 list of Canadian HR Award winners will be available at shortly.
