KITCHENER, ON, CANADA – February 23, 2018 – Overlap Associates, a leading global human-centred design firm, today announced they received the 2018 Business Excellence Award for Employee Engagement from the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.
At the annual Business Excellence Awards Gala on February 22nd, 2018, Overlap’s Co-Founders, Brock Hart and Lisa Grogan, proudly accepted the award on behalf of our team.
We are overjoyed to be recognized for how we treat our people because we believe they are our number one asset. This award comes just after the launch of our new professional development program that aims to make Overlap the best trained in the industry by curating custom course offerings based on the personal and professional goals of our team.
It means a great deal to be acknowledged locally, where Overlap was founded, after our commitment to employee engagement was recognized nationally by Excellence Canada last year. In 2017, Overlap placed amongst the top businesses, winning the Canadian Business Excellence Award for Private Businesses for excelling at innovation, customer experience, and employee engagement.
Thank you to the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce for the leadership role you play to support local businesses. We are delighted to be a part of such an inspiring community in Kitchener, Ontario. Congratulations to all of the 2018 award nominees—you’re a big part of why Overlap is here and thriving in the city we love to call home.
We are all so thankful for the support and kind words we received during and since the BEA gala.
