Classrooms to Boardrooms: What if HR Professionals Were Health Creators?

Date: March 11, 2019
Location: Thompson Rivers University

CPD Hours: 1.5
Event Summary:

Join us for the second event in this valuable series of forums designed for sharing and building HR knowledge in the Central Interior. 

Hosted by TRU’s School of Business and Economics’ Human Enterprise and Innovation (HEI) Department, this engaging event is designed to connect HR professionals with HR academics, for mutual benefit and learning.    
Dr. Farimah Hakem-Zadeh of TRU’s School of Business and Economics will lead a conversation on the importance of positive and proactive approaches to occupational health and safety.

Her research asks questions such as: What if HR professionals were health creators? What if we could go above and beyond just trying to prevent stress and injuries and could create a pandemic of health at and from our place work? When we think in terms of “sick people are more likely to miss work”, we are more likely to look for solutions to prevent employees from getting sick. When, instead, we think in terms of “healthier employees are less likely to miss work,” we are more prone to create solutions to foster employees’ health. There are valuable tools, frameworks, and research that can help us on this path.
