Vancouver, Canada – April 26, 2018
Left, a Canadian-based multinational media and technology company focused in mobile and internet-based businesses, today was named a winner of the first annual BambooHR Hero Awards, which were presented at the BambooHR Summit conference. The awards program was created to recognize customers who have excelled in various HR areas.
Recipients were recognized in six different categories: talent acquisition, reward and recognition, performance management, high-impact HR, culture and onboarding. Left was selected to receive the high-impact award.
“At Left, we like to say we do things right,” says co-founder and COO, John Lyotier. “What this means is that through our actions and the lives we lead every day, we try to do things that make the world a better place and do things right by our team, our community and our environment. One shouldn’t do things in business to win awards, but being recognized for what is truly the heart of our business — our people and our values — feels very right indeed.”
“We’re so impressed with and inspired by our clients’ stellar HR teams and their strategic programs,” said Ben Peterson, CEO and co-founder of BambooHR. “We see tremendous positive impacts on their organizations and love recognizing their efforts and outcomes through the BambooHR Hero Awards.”
Finalists were selected based on the quality, impact and results of their programs. They were then interviewed by members of the BambooHR Hero Awards Committee. Winners in each category were selected based on the strength of their specific programs and passion for HR. For more information about the awards, visit the BambooHR Hero Awards page.
