Nadia Cerisano, President
GTA Rewards Association

Congratulations GTA Rewards Association on our 10th Anniversary! Ten years is a milestone worth celebrating considering our accomplishments. From our inception, we have continued to evolve our offerings and opportunities for total rewards professionals to come together to learn, share information and network.

Through changes in the marketplace, legislation, how we work, and the prevalence of social media, our next 10 years will continue to be pivotal for rewards professionals to succeed at work and in our careers. The GTA Rewards Association will be there to support your evolution.

To commemorate our milestone, I reached out to our past presidents to get their feedback on their thoughts on the GTA Rewards Association and here is a synthesis of what they said:

Q. What is the importance of the GTA Rewards Association to the HR community?

A. It is important to have a network for like-minded rewards professionals to share ideas and best practices. We are specialists in an area of HR that can be very complex at times and it’s good to have colleagues outside of the organization to learn from. Prior to the GTA Rewards Association, there was very little available to the total rewards community in terms of networking, sharing of ideas and promoting the total rewards career. The Association was founded with the principles of remaining grass-roots and relevant for which we’ve stayed true through to today.

Q. Why did you become involved with the GTA Rewards Association?

A. We are extremely passionate about our profession and in meeting others who have made or are making their career in total rewards. It’s a small world where connections are key to future success. It is amazing how our connections make a real difference in our personal and work lives on several levels impacting how we interact with each other and get involved. Many of us take pride in making a real difference in supporting and promoting our profession within the GTA and across Canada. Through the efforts of the Board of Directors and other passionate volunteers, we have the foundation for a vibrant community where we can deliver educational, best-practices and networking opportunities to advance our careers while raising awareness of our profession to the next generation through outreach programs with targeted universities and colleges.

Q. What are your wishes for the GTA Rewards Association?

A. It amazes us how strong our association is after 10 impressive years. The variety and quality of offerings, the passion and dedication of our members and volunteers – all of this with a high degree of professionalism, warmth and integrity. We envision the GTA Rewards Association continuing its growth and influence across the GTA, bringing our top notch expertise across Canada using various media and approaches. Our heartfelt congratulations to current and past volunteers and members for their hard work and support and look forward to our next evolution.
