The following complimentary webinars have been offered to CPA Ontario Members in the past, and have now been archived and available for viewing at any time:
A well thought out Code of Conduct can have significant impact on organizational culture. A sound culture fosters an environment where employees can contribute to their full potential without being concerned that they may stray “off-side”. Although most organizations have a Code, many of them warrant revision to better complement the organization’s mission and vision and to make them more “user friendly”.
The requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) are extensive and will require action. All organizations in Ontario with more than one employee are now required to comply with the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR), which consists of three of the remaining four Standards in the Act: Information and Communications, Employment and Transportation. Is your company prepared? The time to plan for these changes is NOW.
The Canadian workforce continues to become increasingly diverse, with people working longer before retirement, the hiring of younger managers, each with their own distinct style of obtaining and communicating information. Baby boomers, Generation X'ers and Generation Y'ers have different views about everything from where they prefer to get their information and the amount of information they want, to the characteristics of the people they most trust and listen to. These viewpoints have been shaped by the changes in technology, culture, education, and overall standards of living over the course of time. Many of us identify with our own generation group but find the viewpoints and preferences of other generations to be challenging and often confusing to grasp. This course provides an opportunity to consider the research on various generation groups and to better understand what motivates them in the workplace. By understanding the different generations, you will be in a better position to get your message across to team members of all ages and to understand their messages to you.
