Environmental Employer of the Year Awards open for entry

ECO Canada’s 5th annual Environmental Employer of the Year Awards are officially open and accepting candidates.

The Environmental Employer of the Year Awards is an opportunity for employers, who operate within Canada’s environment industry, to be recognized for excellence in human resource practices. The Awards also showcase innovation and inspire advancement in employee engagement that contributes to overall organizational success.

Human Resources/Payroll administrator Sharon Viglianti has seen first hand how quality HR practices can affect a company. “People produce high quality and high volumes of work when they are valued, given flexibility, and are trusted by their employer.” says Sharon. Sharon has worked for last year’s large business Environmental Employer of the Year, The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority since 1977.

All applicants gain access to an employee satisfaction survey and receive a comprehensive report of the results for free. Awards will be presented to this year’s winners at GLOBE 2010 in Vancouver. GLOBE 2010 is dedicated to the business of the environment and is one of the world's largest and most prestigious events.

“We want to celebrate human resource achievements in an industry that continues to expand with high expectations of both companies and employees,” commented Grant Trump, President & CEO of ECO Canada. “The Awards provide companies the opportunity to engage their staff and gain vital feedback on HR practices. This contributes greatly to the continued growth and vitality of Canada’s environment industry.”

Companies can apply within two categories: small- to medium-sized company (15-50 employees) and large company (51+ employees). Award finalists will be judged by an independent selection committee consisting of human resource professionals in the community.

The application deadline is Friday, October 23th 2009.
