"I am hoping to learn their desires"
"And learn how I can help support them not just through this program, but beyond"
Regional HR Business Partner
I manage the Saskatchewan territory in the field of HR. I provide continual support, coaching, recruitment, employee relations etc. to all employees throughout the 7 country locations. I most enjoy when I travel to my sites and work with people in person. I also most enjoy the hiring of new people and provide guidance to those who have been on-board for some time.
We are a new company (3 years) and are a diverse workplace. We have taken on a number of initiatives and programs to ensure greater diversity and inclusion is supported; such as Culture Development, Onboarding, Employee Referral just to note a few.
Not having an agriculture background personally through my recruitment practices I have met a number of outstanding women and learn of their experience through the interview process. I admire women in this field as they seem to be the backbone of having a strong farm and manage all aspects from the staffing, to the accounting books to tending to the field etc. They have amazing strength and dedication to the success and treat it like a business. They are more in the forefront than past years and I feel this is a huge milestone!
Staying healthy, golfing, reading, socializing with friends, travel
I am hoping to learn their desires and how I can help support them not just through this program but beyond. I have had several mentors in my career that I have kept in touch with and they have not only taught me professionally but more importantly personally. Relationships like these are to be cherished and nourished. They truly are one of a kind if you find the right match.
