NLG Wins Prestigious Human Resources Award!

Nisga’a Lisims Government was announced winner in the ‘Best Reward & Recognition Strategy’ category at the Canadian HR Awards ceremony in Toronto on Friday November 7, 2014.

The Canadian HR Awards brings together industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the HR profession, recognizing individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements in people management.

There are 17 organizational and individual categories that have been designed to ensure national recognition of both large and small organizations on their individual merits.

In recent years, NLG HR Manager Cheryl Pelletier and the HR team have implemented various employee recognition initiatives acknowledging such things as years of service, academic and employment achievements recognition in addition to various health and wellness activities.

Cheryl Pelletier, NLG's Human Resources Manager, Pearl Munroe, Human Resources Advisor and Executive Director Cheryl Stephens were on hand to accept the award.  About the award, Cheryl Pelletier had this to say:

"It is truly an honour to be recognized at the National level.  The programs that we have developed and implemented would not be successful without an entire team working tirelessly for the employees of Nisga’a Lisims Government.  That team extends well beyond the HR department – we have had unwavering support from our CEO and Executive Director throughout."

"I would also add that this recognition is such validation.  The work that we do improves the working environment for our employees and keeps NLG top of mind as a great place to work. We are an employer of choice, able to attract and retain qualified talent in a highly competitive environment in northern BC."

Congratulations to our HR Department, CEO and Executive Director for their dedication in improving the working conditions for employees at NLG!
