Rockwood is pleased to announce that our president Allison Grafton has been named one of the finalists shortlisted for the 2017 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards program, and a regional winner in her category. A record breaking 6,400 women entrepreneurs from coast to coast were nominated for this year’s awards, and 18 finalists were selected. All of these exceptional women were chosen for their accomplishments in industries as diverse as finance, technology, construction, hospitality and health services.
Allison received the distinction of Western Division winner for the TEC Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship, which she received at the 25th Annual Awards Gala, hosted by Diane Francis, editor-at-large for the Financial Post on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
Rockwood is pleased to announce that we have been recognized by Waterstone Human Capital and Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures as a winner of a 2017 Most Admired Corporate Culture award. This national program, now in its 14th year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having cultures that enhance performance and help sustain a competitive advantage.
Rockwood Custom Homes was one of only forty national winners chosen across four categories, and one of only ten in our growth category. Our submission was scored on six culture-centric dimensions: vision and leadership, recruitment and hiring for fit, cultural alignment and measurement, retention, rewards and recognition, organizational performance and corporate social responsibility.
