Imagery, printing and photography brand Canon Oceania has instituted an awards program for its various suppliers and has today revealed the inaugural winners for Best Recruitment Partner, Best Tenancy Consultant and Best Technology Partner.

A well-times awards program, coming smack bang between the Grammys and the Oscars, the Cannies, as we’ve cannily dubbed, them represent Canon’s commitment to finding and acknowledging business partners that meet its core pillars of corporate social responsibility, innovation for mutual benefit and seamless integration, according to local managing director Taz Nakamasu.

“Our winners in the 2014 Supplier of the Year awards performed exceptionally, in ways that set them apart,” Nakamasu said. “They consistently helped us to provide our customers with a high level of service and we are looking forward to partnering with them in the future.”

Drumroll please…the first three Cannies winners are:

Best Recruitment Partner — Hudson
Best Tenancy Consultant — LPC Australia
Best Technology Partner — Datacom NZ
