Looking Back on Spring 2015…

Stephanie Noel, Queen's University IRCAfter a long winter and short spring, I’m sure we are all ready for some summer fun with our family and friends. I would like to take a minute to thank all the sponsors, and the participants who attended programs this spring. Congratulations to those who have earned their certificates in Advanced Human Resources, Organization Development Fundamentals, Labour Relations and Advanced Labour Relations.

In addition to our open enrollment and custom programs this spring, we also held a one-day Summit to explore the changing world of work, including the changing nature of work, what organizations will need to be successful in the future, and the differences in the millennial generation. The 2015 Workplace in Motion Summit had an impressive line-up of guest speakers and facilitators, with over 100 human resources, organizational development, and labour relations practitioners attending. It was a great day, and it was wonderful to see many old friends and meet new ones as well.
