Employers need to be employee-friendly

Employers fretting about attracting and retaining workers should look in the mirror. Their corporate culture could be an asset or a liability.

David Irvine, a leadership and personal development expert, will offer some insights into creating an employee-friendly environment during a presentation in Rocky Mountain House on Jan. 30. He will speak on the topic, Building a high-performance culture — the power of values alignment to attract and retain your best people.

Irvine will be the keynote speaker at the quarterly meeting of the Rocky Employee Attraction & Retention Network (EARN) Committee. Organized by Rocky’s Rural Alberta Business Centre and Central Alberta Economic Partnership, the meeting will begin with a 7 a.m. breakfast, followed by the presentation of labour market information and then Irvine’s address at 7:45. The breakfast meeting will wrap up with a networking session from 9:30 to 10.

Cost to attend the meeting, which will be held at the Lou Soppit Community Centre, is $15 for advance registrations and $20 at the door. Registrations can be completed by calling 403-845-4544 or emailing
