Event description

Description

Join us for the 2nd Leadership Meeting of 2018.

Session 1-The Respectful Workplace-Part 2

Roberta Haas, VP People will take us through the expectations and guidelines for supporting attendance and accomodating different workplace needs. YMCA policies, the Ministry of Labour, WorkSafe BC and the BC Human Rights Code all guide the way in which we support a safe and respectful workplace ensuring everyone has the opportunity to do their best work everyday.

Session 2-Appetite to Play

Physical activity and healthy eating in Early Childhood are important for healthy child development and set the stage for lifelong healthy behaviours. Appetite to Play is an initiative designed to support early years educators to promote and encourage physical activity. Appetite to Play provides healthy eating and physical activity recommended practices and practice support resources for early years providers to use in your programs and to share with your families.

Special Addition:

Last fall, Helen and Roberta led a focus group at our ECE Conference at Camp Elphinstone as a follow-up to the 2017 Employee Engagement survey. We are excited to report they are heading out on the road again to share some of the work we’ve undertaken since that time and share the Employee Engagement strategy with you.

Over the next few months, they will be meeting with staff across the Association and we are happy to provide you with an opportunity to meet with them as a leadership group, we strongly encourage you to attend. The meeting will be one hour in length, and they will be sharing our Employee Engagement Strategy, discussing next steps and getting your feedback on the plan.

We are all hopeful you will continue to add to the dialogue by attending a meeting and providing your views on the plan that's been developed to create a workplace that engages, inspires and motivates us all!
