2019-2021 Winners

After two years of managing with reduced staff and work hours, Human Synergistics Canada is pleased to be able announce its Corporate Culture Award Winners for the past three years. There have been 11 winners in this period.  Founded in 2015, the Award of Merit is presented to those organizations that have developed and maintained a Constructive Culture, as measured by Human Synergistics, using the Organizational Culture Inventory™ *. The Award of Excellence award is for organizations that have achieved exceptionally high scores on their OCI.

Because of the high levels of criterion-related validity (aka “predictive validity”), the OCI can be used to predict employee engagement and quality of work. Therefore, companies that have a Constructive Culture (winners of this award) will not only have high levels of employee engagement but also enjoy a reputation for superior product and service quality – in short, a great place to work. This year’s results are particularly exciting because the winners represent a broad spectrum of Canada – from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.

The Client  Awards were created by Human Synergistics Canada to celebrate and honour clients and organizations that are living the ideals of a constructive culture.

Through our mission of Changing the World—One Organization at a Time®, we help create organizations that are constructive places to work, where leaders provide inspiring leadership and individuals see that their personal effort counts. As our research and experience has demonstrated, creating Constructive Cultures takes courage, leadership, and persistence.

We have three awards to recognize these efforts.


The winners of the Corporate Award of Merit are organizations that have developed and maintained a Constructive Culture as measured by Human Synergistics Canada. using the Organizational Culture Inventory® (OCI®).

Organizations with Constructive Cultures place a high value on service and product quality, goal attainment, and the development of their people—where quality is valued over quantity; creativity is valued over conformity; and cooperation is believed to lead to better results than competition. Through individual initiative, effective teamwork and cooperation; the products and services offered by Constructive organizations tend to be of the highest quality.

The Transformational Award is given to organizations that created a more constructive culture, using Human Synergistics leadership materials, such as Leadership WorkStyles™,  Leadership/Impact™, or Management/Impact™. In order to qualify, the Organization must have received an OCI Culture Report, developed a change strategy that included Human Synergistics materials, and then conducted a second OCI Culture Report that was significantly more constructive than the first—thus showing evidence of a transformation.

If you are involved in a cultural change program and have undertaken an OCI re-test in the past year, we encourage you contact us to see how to qualify for this prestigious award.
