OTTAWA, Feb. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - For the third time in the past five years, The Conference Board of Canada has been recognized as one of the National Capital Region's Top Employers for 2012.
"We are delighted with this recognition, which strengthens the Conference Board's ability to attract and retain the high-calibre talent who will enable our continued success," said Barb Hogberg, Executive Director, Human Resources. "Part of the Conference Board's mission is to create and share insights on organizational performance through our research and networks. This mission inherently raises the bar for our own HR practices."
The Conference Board of Canada is the foremost independent, not-for-profit applied research organization in Canada, building leadership capacity for a better Canada by creating and sharing insights on economic trends, public policy issues, and organizational performance.
