Ceridian Chief People Officer Recognized by HRO Today as an HR Superstar

Minneapolis MN, May 19, 2017

Ceridian, a global human capital management technology company, announces that Lisa Sterling, its Chief People Officer, has been named an HR Superstar by the HRO Today Services and Technology Association Awards. She was recognized for her “people focused” approach to HR, transforming Ceridian’s HR organization into a people and culture organization, redesigning Ceridian’s people development strategies and significantly improving employee engagement at the organization.

“Lisa’s commitment to employee engagement initiatives and their achievements is a great example of how creating a winning culture leads to real business results,” says David Ossip, CEO of Ceridian. “Our own transformation through our Makes Work Life Better culture is at the core of our thinking and allows Ceridian to continually improve the workforce technology solutions we provide to our customers. Helping our customers achieve their own HCM goals and cultural transformation has contributed to impressive compounded growth for our award-winning cloud-based solution, Dayforce HCM.”

Under Lisa’s guidance, Ceridian eliminated annual performance reviews, instead leveraging the performance management functionality within Dayforce HCM to transition to a continuous feedback style of performance management. Ceridian also uses an industry-first Employee Engagement Platform that integrates engagement and wellness with robust social recognition features, allowing employee achievements to be recognized throughout the organization in real time.

“Ceridian is now enjoying the benefits of our cultural transformation, with excellence demonstrated across all areas of operations and an increasingly engaged workforce,” says Lisa. “That success allows us to partner with our customers to help them with their own transformation and to provide innovative technology that makes their HCM operations seamless.”

Lisa’s award was announced on May 1 at the HRO Today awards gala during the HRO Today Forum North America in Chicago. She has also been recognized this year by the American Business Awards in the Human Resources Executive of the Year category.
