Ceridian, a global human capital management technology company, today proudly announced that its CEO, David Ossip, was named one of Canada’s Most Admired CEOs, in the category of transformational leadership. Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO recognizes the country’s most esteemed Chief Executive Officers that have fostered corporate cultures that drive best-in class performance.

“While I gladly accept this award, I must stress that the honor truly belongs to our whole Ceridian team,” said Ossip. “At Ceridian, each of us is dedicated to creating a culture of excellence, innovation, and success. It’s our people who have helped us realize our outstanding transformation into a leading HCM technology company and who do the hard work of assisting our customers in achieving greater success, every day.”

David Ossip took over Ceridian in 2012, after Ceridian’s acquisition of Dayforce.  With a technology founder as its new CEO, the newly merged organization made a radical pivot to the cloud; building out a single application for people and work, and divested lines of business that were not central to its mission of being a world-class Human Capital Management technology company.

The results speak for themselves: more than 2,500 customers are now live on Ceridian’s flagship Dayforce platform, and Ceridian now counts The PUR Company Inc. and Longo’s among its customers. 

The results are also reflected in a vibrant corporate culture. Ceridian is one of the most highly recommended companies on Glassdoor – named one of the 15 companies that have scored highest on “Recommend to a Friend”. Ceridian was also named one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures in 2016.

"At Waterstone we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it’s your organization’s greatest asset,” said Marty Parker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waterstone Human Capital and Chair of Canada’s Most Admired™ CEOs. “What’s remarkable about this dynamic list of CEOs is their commitment to culture as a competitive advantage. They truly set the benchmark for cultivating, and sustaining, great cultures that ultimately drive their growth and power the performance of their teams. They are leaders to be admired for the diverse and impactful ways they make sure culture underpins all that makes them successful.”
