Roundtable Summary: 

The Labour Relations Practitioners Roundtable is intended for those members presently working in labour relations and/or HR practitioners working in unionized workplaces.

Topic: Connecting to purpose in your business  

Many organizations have a good governance structure, including many supportive policies and practices, and even a good management team. However, they often don’t perform to their best, have internal frustrations, or ongoing breakdowns of communication which lead to friction and distrust within the company.

How do you as an HR/LR professional lead positive change using key aspects of your role to change perceptions and help transform your organization?

In this session we’ll explore engaging support through building a strong sense of purpose, alignment and clarity.

•         How do you get everyone on the same page?
•         How do you meet people where they are?
•         Why do you have differing levels of performance?

We’ll also explore what COVID-19 has highlighted and what this means for business in the future.
Guest Facilitators: Greg Tooke at Light Trail Consulting & Janice Hanson, CPHR, SHRM Manager at People Services BCAA

Greg Tooke  has a strong moral compass and started Light Trail 10 years ago with a clear goal.

From its inception, he has always focused Light Trail on working with socially minded leaders to help them realize the full potential of being an inclusive, purpose driven organization.

A visionary leader, Greg brings clarity to boards and senior executives to help align their people, resources and organizational strategy. By bridging the best aspects of business and non-profit, he ensures organizations can build and engage their teams to sustain positive change and improve long-term organizational effectiveness.

With in-depth business experience in different cultures, countries and industries, Greg always remains focused on his values and passion. This includes his commitment to his local community.

Greg is currently the Board Chair for Brightside Community Homes, working toward a future where people of all income levels have a home within a vibrant and healthy community.
