People Builder Awards
This award aims at identifying those quiet leaders who tirelessly invest in their team members and who understand the true value of building people around them (not just technical skills, but soft skills as well). These candidates exceed in the area of people development. They don’t see people development as a box to tick off on a job description. These nominees didn’t just do the job for their level – they did the little things that didn’t necessarily get noticed.
Helen Purdy, Senior Accountant
Carrie Bothwell, Senior Accountant
Adrian Carreiro, CPA, CA, Senior Manager
Process Builder Awards
This award is aimed at identifying those leaders who invest in building the necessary processes at the firm, often before we even understand the need for these processes. These team members truly understand that process and structure are necessary to maximize efficiencies in our daily work and also to minimize our stress! They are also prepared to recognize failure from a current process and they are not afraid to dissect the current process (without judgment) to look for improvements.
Lauren Sorbara, Supervisor
Dale Hawker, CPA, CA, Senior Manager
BD Culture Award
This award is aimed at identifying those RLB leaders who get outside their comfort zone when it comes to business development. RLB has spent a lot of time planning for solutions around expanding the culture of business development throughout the organization rather than in isolated pockets in the leadership group.
Anita Hollands, CPA, CGA, Senior Manager
Rebecca Hahn, CPA, CGA, Senior Manager
