September 28, 2017

Les Czarnota, Researcher, Communications, Canadian Credit Union Association

While the Conference Board of Canada (CBoC) is renowned for its reports and conferences on various topics, it is not as well known that credit union employees and directors also have access to CBoC’s 60-minute webinars led by experts in their fields. Topics include: national and provincial short-term economic trends, human resource management, compensation and benefits, organizational excellence, governance and enterprise risk management.

Please note that there will be a cost associated with the webinar if you would like to attend it in real time. However, within about a month, webinars within the topic covered by CCUA’s subscription will become available at no cost. You must have an account with the Conference Board of Canada to be able to access the webinars. To sign in or create a new account, please click here.

Organizations with positive and resilient teams have higher employee and customer satisfaction, reduced turnover and lower levels of errors, stress and injury. Yet in most organizations, teamwork is not well developed.
