Date & Time

28 Feb 16:00 - 17:00


The Shed, Digital Greenhouse


Janine Mayor

At February's Innovation Lab we welcome Janine Mayor, Investors in People Consultant at the GTA University Centre, whose talk will focus on the benefits of putting people at the centre of your performance strategy. 

What makes high performing organisations different?  Are you making an impact and engaging with your teams?  How do you invest in and develop your people? In this session we will bring together knowledge and experience that we have gained from working with high performing organisations.  We will highlight what made them successful and what has helped them make the leap to invest in their people, plus, provide practical examples that will assist you to "stay human" in the workplace. 

Working with people brings everyday challenges and we often think "our way" is the right way.  However, we can learn from others and strive to make the difference in life.  It is easy to get caught up on the treadmill of work-life, yet the question is - do you stand back and reflect on what else you could do to improve?
