Journey to Engagement: HR Realities in a Post-COVID Workplace

Are you ready for the newest shortage and price hike? It’s not housing or lumber. The latest deficit will be human capital, widespread and felt by every business sector. This labour shortage will obsolete the old ways of attracting, retaining and inspiring. Employers will need to find new ways to attract employees, hang on to the ones they have, and build capacity with their existing team. In addition, many employers will see the globe as their recruitment opportunities; you now have to compete against your local competition for people and places like New York, the UK, or Brazil. 

Many employers have changed how they work, and as we come out of the pandemic, employers and employees will look for a new normal. What will that look like for you? One thing is for sure; it will never go back to how it was before the pandemic. Employers and employees must adapt to the new reality in the job market. Research shows exciting trends that will undoubtedly impact your organization as we come out of the pandemic. 

We are heading into some very challenging times regarding the Canadian employment market. Join Eddie LeMoine as he guides you through employment trends and why the old ways of managing people may not work in the future. Eddie will help you understand today’s employment challenges and how to be best prepared for a successful future.

Intentional Leadership

Being intentional is a simple concept – too simple, some might think to provide a solution to the complex challenges of work. But it is precisely this simplicity that gives intentionality such power to affect positive change from the frontline to the boardroom.

When integrated throughout a department or organization, it becomes a standard for decision-making with the power to lift the emotional culture up and enrich it. Being intentional provides an easily understood ‘benchmark’ for recharging individuals amid the daily changes of today’s transitional workplace.

This inspirational and thought-provoking session will bring to life the true value of being an intentional leader at work through the exploration of the 12 Character-Building Traits that raise one’s self-awareness and personal accountability for the development of a respectful and caring workplace. Your group will complete an “Intentional leader” assessment to be shared during the presentation. Truth be told, no one can motivate you but you. An individual’s habits, thoughts, and words become their character, which turns into positive or negative action. This session presupposes that everyone is a leader, and each is accountable and responsible for personally building a positive character and habits that translate into self-motivation. Selected character-building traits will be explored to build a strong foundation under the three themes of self, colleagues and community.
