HUB 1 MEMBERS TESTIMONIALS

Heather Leeman

“The HR HUB has made me a stronger leader by developing my ability to deal with human resource issues.  When I first started as Executive Director at the North End Women’s Centre I would have said that about 50% of my time was spent dealing with Human Resource related issues and now I can honestly say that it takes only about 25% of my time which is exactly where it should be.  Human resources can be challenging but thanks to the support I receive from the HUB, I feel much more confident in my abilities and decisions.  Stronger personal policies and procedures have definitely contributed to stabilizing the Centre.”

“The HR Hub has been a tremendously positive experience for me. The peer to peer learning environment is one I feel very comfortable in and I have gained not only valuable knowledge about current HR practices and trends, but also confidence in my role as well as useful tools that I have implemented in my workplace.”

“The MFNPO HUB has proven to have real value for my organization. The professional development specific to HR issues has greatly expanded my knowledge in this area. Access to a professional advisor has helped us immensely especially in the area of risk management. The most valuable part of this initiative for me has been the ongoing interaction with my HUB colleagues. The opportunity to share insights with other community leaders has been a great experience.”

“Winnipeg is unique in many ways…across disciplines and perceived boundaries, we work together and find ways to move ahead.  The HUB project is a perfect example, setting up a diverse group of non-profit general managers for HR and leadership training. The peer to peer learning, the trust, the depth of knowledge and professionalism of consultants, teachers and participants – all these have combined to create a powerful learning situation, one that will benefit individuals, their organizations, the communities they work in and, indeed, the larger Manitoba population.  It has been a great experience.”

“Like many leaders of smaller non-profit organizations, I felt like I was flying blind when it came to most Human Resources issues.  Participation in the HUB let me know that I was not alone and gave me concrete tools and support such that I now feel confident that I can take action to improve our processes and handle any issues that arise.”
