Leadership was a key theme for the 12th Annual HRMAM Excellence in Leadership Gala held on April 9th, 2014. Chair Elect Roma Thorlakson began the evening by recognizing the role that HRMAM members play in ensuring that HR professionals are viewed as strategic leaders in public policy and private sector innovation and make a significant impact across diverse communities throughout Manitoba.
Everything about this year’s event was a clear reflection of the professionalism, focus and attention to detail that the nominees and award recipients demonstrated in their projects.
Take Maple Leaf Consumer Foods, award recipients in the Health, Wellness and Safe Workplace category. The organization reduced the number of workplace injuries, even after hiring almost 400 new people into a workplace that requires repetitive tasks and uses large, sharp equipment in an environment that is 40C.
Safety Services Manitoba was very honoured to present the Health, Wellness and Safe Workplace Award to Maple Leaf Consumer Foods. On behalf of all of us at SSM, we congratulate Maple Leaf, as well as all of the other recipients of this year’s awards.
