Here at the studio, we are excited to announce that one of our own clients and major local HR Professional, Christina Seargeant, is one of two finalists for the prestigious 2016 HRMA Rising Star Award. The Human Resources Management Association (HRMA) Professional Awards are presented at the annual conference to shine the spotlight on innovative and inspiring HR professionals and celebrate leaders who inspire above-average people practices. Recently, finalists for the 2016 awards were announced in the Rising Star and the Award of Excellence: HR Professional of the Year categories.
“The Rising Star Award recognizes and publicly honours an HRMA member who is ‘lighting the HR community on fire’. This award recognizes the individuals who hold the future of our profession in their hands and are the lifeblood for many of HRMA’s volunteer committees.”
