The Human Capital Club Kick-off!
The Human Capital Club has been formed to provide a resource for us to learn more of those skills while we’re at Rotman, so that we can start improving the way we make business decisions involving people right away.
The club’s kick-off mixer and first workshop event take place on March 27th in RSM 151 (North Building) at 6:30pm with Ginny Jones, Relationship Management Consultant and President of Acuity Options. The workshop will focus on “Understanding organizational culture and how to decode it from the outside”. The cost of the event is only $10 and this covers your membership fee with the club for two years. Snacks will be provided!
Imagine if you could “decode” a company’s organizational culture quickly and efficiently, so that you can find the kind of workplace that just feels right.
Join us Wednesday, March 27th for the first Human Capital Club event, Reading the Signs:Assessing Organizational Culture & Finding Your Fit, featuring guest speaker Ginny Jones, President of Acuity Options to learn some simple skills and tools to target your search for a workplace where you’ll thrive. Drawing on organizational behaviour theory and her consulting expertise in communications and change management, Ginny will lead you through an engaging exercise in which you’ll learn and apply a simple “framework and tools” to understand and evaluate a potential employer from a cultural perspective. These same tools can be used once you’ve been hired to help you adapt more quickly and contribute to that culture. Please see below for Ginny’s full bio.
