Canadian HR Reporter unveils winners of first annual Readers Choice Awards

Thanks to our readers for casting ballots - now see who won

Earlier this year, Canadian HR Reporter polled its readers to find out which HR vendors and suppliers are their favourites in our first annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

Nearly 150 companies were honoured in 64 different categories. That means we’ve covered the gamut in terms of the products and services you’re looking for — whether it’s an employment lawyer, benefits provider, uniform supplier, HR education institution, professional development, the list goes on and on.

Since this is the first year we conducted this survey, we didn’t know what response we’d get from our readers. We were overwhelmed by the participation from you — more than 17,000 ballots were cast in total. It adds even more cachet for the winning firms. After all, these companies weren’t chosen by a handful of judges behind a closed door.

Instead, we set up a digital survey and sent an invitation to our audience to vote — to tell us the companies they like doing business with and the ones that provide really good value. This guide is designed to be used by you, our readers, as a cheat sheet. It’s like having a window into the offices of your colleagues at organizations across the country.

When you’re looking for a service provider, look for the Readers’ Choice seal. It’s not an endorsement from the editors of Canadian HR Reporter — it’s something far better. It’s a seal of approval from your colleagues.

To those who cast ballots, thanks again for taking the time to vote. If you don’t see your favourite firms honoured in these pages, be sure to participate and vote next year.

We produced a special section to highlight these extraordinary firms — you can access the digital edition for free at anytime. See

This special section is designed to highlight these extraordinary firms — the ones our readers think are the very best at what they do.
