By Alyssa Dalton
October 20, 2013 – The Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) has named Gianna Manes of Enmax Corp. as the winner of its CEO of the Year award, due to her “exceptional leadership” demonstrated as she led Enmax’s relief response to the June 2013 Alberta floods.
The award was established by EHRC earlier this year to “recognize and celebrate an individual who has made an outstanding contribution” to their organization within Canada’s electricity industry.
“Her visionary leadership and dedication to her employees ensures the electricity workforce has the opportunity and skills to contribute to the local communities in which they live, work and play,” said EHRC.
On November 6, EHRC will present the award to Manes as part of the EHRC Conference and Inaugural Awards Gala “Empowering the Future Today”, along with four other award category winners:
• Emerging Leader Award;
• Innovation in HR Practices – Educational or Training Institution ;
• Innovation in HR Practices – Employer; and
• Workplace Diversity Champion.
