The first Chamber luncheon of the fall was held on September 18th where 38 people were treated to a delicious lunch at The Gates on Roblin.

Jane Helbrecht, partner with Acuity HR Solutions, spoke about building and maintaining a strong workplace culture. She discussed all of the various methods currently being used by companies to increase engagement that are not working. Jane said, “The one thing that will make a difference is “people leaders”. It’s necessary to invest in your leaders so they can lead employees. Your employees will get engaged if there is good management. Don’t manage people – lead them.  Managing gets compliance; leadership gets commitment.”
