Navigating the HHR Crisis: Learning to Lead Differently to Retain Talent Using the LEADS Framework November 9, 2023, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm BMO Learning Centre, 3550 Pharmacy Ave., Toronto
Ontario has been grappling with a shortage of Health Human Resources (HHR) for years. The COVID-19 pandemic has now pushed these challenges to a full-blown crisis. Mass burn-out, low staff retention, resource scarcity and an aging workforce are severely impacting the ability of community health organizations to provide vital support to those they serve.
Join us on November 9th for an exclusive symposium in partnership with LEADS Canada. This event will give you the opportunity to explore how the LEADS framework can help you build the leadership skills you’ll need to navigate the HHR crisis now and build a stronger workforce in the future.
