Presenter: Donna Stratton B.CC – McBride Career Group

Donna Stratton has been a part of the Human Resource industry for over 6 years. She specializes in training & development and onboarding in which she develops designs and delivers programs and workshops. She is most recently involved in government funded programs, recruitment, and coaching.  Donna is currently enrolled in the Human Resource Management Program at Mount Royal University. She believes that the word “human” of Human Resources should be emphasized in the workplace and that every employee be given the chance to learn and grow. An employee is an investment within the company and it is a company’s responsibility to be sure every employee is given the tools and support to produce the return. If an employee fails, is it the employee?…… or the employer who failed them?
