Presented in partnership with CPHRBC & Yukon. It’s no surprise that the current COVID-19 situation has had an impact on our lives and the way we work. With protocols such as physical distancing, it has become even more important that as Human Resource professionals and leaders we make the extra effort to remain emotionally connected to our colleagues when working remotely. In addition to fear and anxiety, the workplace stress can lead to burnout. And now more than ever, it is critical that you recognize what stress looks like, take steps to build your resilience, manage job stress, and know where to go if you need help. Join our upcoming event where experts will share tips and resources to support and help manage the mental health and wellness of your team and workplace through these challenging times. This event will also provide you the opportunity to network with organizations who not only support the wellbeing of our mental health and wellness but give you an insight to tangible products and services that are available for you and your workplace.
Presented by Lorne Rubis. Why do some cultures thrive while others languish or even worse, become toxic? And what role do leaders play in helping cultures thrive? What role does the HR community play in advancing a culture? Why is culture taking on even more importance through and post Covid? How could cultures progress even when so many people will be working remotely? Organizational Cultures are living systems that can be intentionally influenced and developed through a defined system of connected elements. This course will compel HR leaders to examine their beliefs and practices pertaining to organizational culture. Through case study, inquiry, reflection and discussion, we will engage in critically assessing culture and applying effective action to drive culture performance.
