Amid an ever-evolving and fast-paced human resources landscape, McLean & Company, one of the world’s leading HR research and advisory firms, has been named a winner of the 2023 Innovative HR Teams award by well-known industry publication HRDC (Human Resources Director Canada).
According to HRDC, the Innovative HR Teams award recognizes leaders that are breaking boundaries to move the HR industry forward. This includes taking a progressive approach to recruitment, introducing new technology, rolling out a ground-breaking reward and recognition strategy, or providing data-driven research and toolkits to improve organizational HR function.
McLean & Company aims to empower HR and business leaders to shape workplaces where everyone thrives. However, to support others in their efforts to thrive, we must first look inward to see how we, as an internal team, can innovate and adapt in an ever-changing environment, says Jennifer Rozon, president of McLean & Company. To be recognized as an innovative HR team by one of the industry’s most respected publications is an honor that we don’t take lightly. We look forward to continuing to drive excellence and innovation, both internally and within the HR research and advisory industry.
