Please join us for our next meeting on  Thursday,  February 22, 2018, entitled “How to Create a Positive Organizational Culture“.

This presentation will discuss how to strengthen your firm’s organizational culture to foster maximum employee engagement, productivity and retention.  We will explore the role that leadership plays in culture creation, as well as your firm’s supporting structures and processes – everything from hiring for cultural fit, to training and rewarding for it. The importance or organizational story telling, shared traditions, value alignment, and psychological safety will be discussed to provide a framework for how your firm can build and enhance its current organizational culture.

Our guest speaker, Robin Turnill, is CEO and founder of Pivot HR Services in Vancouver, and has spoken at BCLMA meetings in the past.

As a community-minded individual, Robin volunteers her time and expertise as a Board Director for non-profit organizations.   She is the Vice-Chair of Greater Vancouver Community Services Society, a founding Board Member for Project Change Foundation, and past Chair of the Human Resources and Governance Committee for Kids Up Front Foundation.
