Maintaining Healthy Relationships with Staff
Presented by: Brian Pearson, Employee Relations & HR Consulting Services and
Melanie Goroniuk, Health Promotion and WorkLife Services
Thursday, March 14, 2013

Prairie Room, Lister Centre
Maintaining a healthy working relationship during times of change is not an easy task. In fact, it's a time when leaders must be at the top of their game because the challenges they face are unique and inherently more difficult than before. Increasing work pressures, changing expectations, and periods of significant change when it is not by choice may lead to the perception that trust has been broken. Managers must recognize and deal with the natural reactions of their staff members, and keep them motivated and engaged in their work. Leadership style, management practices, the way work is organized and employee autonomy and control are key elements of the psycho-social work environment and strongly influence a healthy work culture. This workshop focuses on practical strategies for developing and maintaining healthy working relationships in challenging times.

Workplace Accommodation
Presented by: Melanie Goroniuk and Valerie Hunter, Health Promotion and WorkLife Services
Monday, April 22, 2013
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Prairie Room, Lister Centre
Workplace best practice is finding a way to assist your staff members to work more effectively by overcoming real or perceived barriers and limitations. This effort can be compounded when staff members experience a physical or mental illness that impacts their ability to fulfill their work responsibilities. This informative and interactive workshop will provide participants with an understanding of accommodation, functional limitations, the legal requirements of the employer and the resources and services offered by the University to assist in accommodating individuals with health concerns. Participants will also be engaged in a number of accommodation case studies to gain a greater understanding of the challenges and rewards of working through this process.
