Employer recognition awards are more than simply a plaque on a wall or a trophy on a shelf. External employer recognition awards demonstrate legitimacy and credibility. They show that The Ottawa Hospital excels as an industry and innovates in ways that support our staff, our community and beyond.   A great corporate culture doesn’t just come from the top, and it does not reside in HR alone. It’s created by everyone – every function and role across an organization.

“Our Corporate culture has helped us navigate through the pandemic and emerge into new ways of working. The compassion and empathy in what our people are trying to do is amazing! It’s a testament to the culture as to how effectively and positively people rally as a team around difficult situations.”

Cameron Love – President and CEO, The Ottawa Hospital
