TORONTO, July 17, 2018 /CNW/ - The finalists for the 2018 Canadian HR Awards have finally been announced
The event, brought to you by Ultimate Software, sets the standard for excellence in the HR profession, recognizing the achievements of outstanding HR professionals, teams and companies across 25 categories.
In total, there are over 190 finalists from more than 140 companies, representing a true cross-section of the HR profession's best.
According to Canadian HR Awards project director Jessica Duce, the finalist selection process was more tightly contested than ever this year, almost tripling the number of entries in 2017.
"The process of choosing a winner is both a diligent and meticulous one, with participation just in the nomination process alone growing year after year, but we relish such a task because we've become a trusted institution in the Canadian HR sector.
"We couldn't ask for a more comprehensive line-up of this industry's most dedicated, diligent and diverse individuals and organizations. They demonstrate the resilience, innovation and sheer management smarts it takes to build a thriving business today," she added.

As the next step of the awards process, all finalists will have to complete a submission for an independent panel of judges who have been selected from across the HR profession. Winners will be revealed at a black-tie awards ceremony on Thursday, September 20th at The Liberty Grand, Toronto.
Full coverage of the 2018 Canadian HR Awards finalists will also be available in the next issue of HRD.
