Feb 14, 2017 Toronto, Ontario – Hilborn:ECS together with partners CCEOC Inc. and The Goldie Company congratulate the recipients of the 2016 Canadian Nonprofit Employer of Choice (NEOC) Award.

The 2016 Nonprofit Employer of Choice Award Recipients were:
2015 Nonprofit Employer of Choice Award Recipients:
All winners successfully completed the NEOC Organizational Profile and Employee Commitment Survey achieving a minimum overall score of 75% overall to qualify for the award.
In 2006 it was predicted that the nonprofit sector would experience a deficit of leaders. A decade later the Social Stanford Review reports that little progress has been made. A related concern for the sector has been the lack of talent management and gaps in the skill profile of the labour force. The NEOC Award process provides a framework to evaluate an organization's talent management issues and start constructing a corrective plan of action. This program further enables the board and senior staff to probe and analyze the issues and start the transformational change needed to achieve the impact the donor rightly expects. The bottom line is always about mission impact.
The Nonprofit Employer of Choice™ Awards (NEOC) recognizes organizations that have committed themselves to better business management practices ensuring successful mission achievement. Canada's nonprofit sector has recognized the vital importance of incorporating private sector business practices in areas such as marketing, financial accountability and people management while still honoring the sector’s best practices in service and mission delivery.
Applications Close: October 31, 2017
