Skyline Group of Companies has been selected as a finalist for the Seneca Award for Best Learning & Development Strategy in the 2020 Canadian HR Awards presented by HRD Canada and supported by Canadian HR Reporter.

The Canadian HR Awards program celebrates the outstanding achievements of HR teams, leaders, employers, and service providers across Canada.

The Best Learning & Development Strategy award recognizes and celebrates the HR team that has delivered the most outstanding organizational benefits by directly linking the training needs of their people, at all levels, to the business needs of their organization.

“We’re honoured to be named a finalist for the Canadian HR Awards, and 2020 is an especially significant time to be recognized for employee training and development,” said Martin Castellan, Co-Founder and Chief Administrative Officer, Skyline Group of Companies.

“Every one of our departments here at Skyline, including our Human Resources team, had to pivot in a very short amount of time amid the pandemic. I’m proud to say our HR team has played a major role in keeping our team of nearly 1,000 across Canada engaged and informed in these challenging times.”

This has been an incredibly challenging year for HR professionals,” said Canadian HR Awards project director Jessica Duce.

“The list of finalists is a true snapshot of the best and brightest in HR and honours those who have stepped up and put their people first at a time when it mattered most. It’s our honour to acknowledge and celebrate this deserving group at the September show.”

Winners will be selected by an esteemed independent judging panel and revealed during a virtual awards show on September 16, 2020.
