Atlantic Lottery Corporation wins HR award

ALC takes home strategic partnership award at the Atlantic Canada Human Resources Awards

The Atlantic Lottery Corporation took top honours at the Atlantic Canada Human Resources Awards.

This is the second year for the awards, which recognize leadership, innovation and distinction in human resource management.

The lottery corporation took home the award in the strategic partnership category, which recognizes the successful link between organizational strategy and human resources.

“Two years ago, (the lottery corporation) recognized a need to fundamentally reposition its culture and HR strategy in order to continue to be successful in the changing marketplace,” said Diane Allain, vice-president of organizational development. “The organizational change focused on integration and accountability and has ultimately energized our workforce and created a culture where employee performance and teamwork are encouraged, fostered and rewarded because it is a direct reflection of our overall corporate objectives. Thanks to people who are passionate about what they do, (the lottery corporation) will remain an employer of choice for Atlantic Canadians.”

The Atlantic Lottery Corporation was formed in 1976 and runs the lottery and gaming activities in the four Atlantic provinces — New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. The company has more than 500 employees and an independent sales network of 6,000 lottery retailers.
