IISD President and CEO Wins Visionary Leadership Award for HR Excellence

June 2, 2022

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is pleased to announce that its president and CEO, Richard Florizone, won a Visionary Leadership Award from the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) Manitoba, presented at its annual HR Excellence Awards ceremony this week.

The prize recognizes executives outside of the human resources field who endorse, support, or champion the HR function within their organization.

IISD was also recognized as a finalist in two other categories: The Impact Award, for our innovative talent attraction strategies, in particular through the new Employer on Record model; and the Leadership Award, which recognizes individuals who are a trusted resource at their organization, advancing corporate objectives, setting policy, and supporting sound governance—IISD’s Director of Talent and Culture, Anumeha Baldner, was nominated for this.

"Without Richard’s unwavering support, along with his steady encouragement and collaborative spirit, the Human Resources team at IISD would not have been able to achieve as much as we did this year," says Baldner. "We are fortunate to have worked under his inspiring leadership."

"This truly is a tribute to Anu’s talent and vision," says Florizone, "along with IISD’s senior management team, who have worked hard together over the past year and a half to ensure our staff and associates were supported during the COVID-19 pandemic."
