Bar-David Consulting Receives 2017 Canadian HR Reporter Readers’ Choice Awards


Bar-David Consulting is thrilled and grateful to have received the 2017 Canadian HR Reporter Readers’ Choice Awards. The awards program recognizes best providers as seen through the eyes of the magazine’s readers.

Having collaborated and contributed to the Canadian HR Reporter magazine since 2008, offering commentary on a variety of issues, leading webinars, responding to HR Toughest Questions, and partnering on designing two large-scale surveys on abrasive leaders and workplace incivility, we are especially honoured by this recognition.
