Retaining Your Valuable Employees

Valued and empowered employees create strategic opportunities for increased workplace innovation. Employers need to embrace the notion of actively valuing their employees to receive a huge pay-off. Realizing and sustaining this notion enables employers to attract, retain and engage the very best as well as create workplaces that inspire, channel, and reinforce desired levels of innovation.

Keynote Speaker: Ian R W Proudfoot, B.A. OMC, Growth Catalyst, catalyst2growth

Ian Proudfoot, recently retired from a career as publisher at Metroland Media Group that spanned five decades. A long- time resident of York Region, Proudfoot’s inspiration has been his dedication to the power of community building. He is a big believer in doing the right things for the right reasons and creating a tremendous amount of pride in the team, a testament to his ever-ready penchant for praising those around him. “When people are proud of the organization they work at, you create great things. That’s my lesson in business and that’s the lesson I think more businesses need to understand. And that has been, for me, the heart of everything we’ve done.”
