corporate training & professional development
Today’s Human Resource managers and departments are expected to align an organization’s business goals with the needs of its people. They are asked to create innovative HR programs that attract and retain the most talented employees in the short and long term. This requires business acumen, insight into human behavior, leadership and nimbleness.
DFWI understands how this function has dramatically evolved and we leverage this knowledge to succeed in developing effective cost strategies. Whether you are a start-up company, a multi-national or something in between, DFWI can assist you. Our resources span all regional industries in HR specialties such as:
Corporate structure analysis
Employee satisfaction focus groups
Interview questions and scoring setup
Leadership development/change management
Professional, Personal and Career Development courses
DFWI develops the Professional Development components based on information gathered through its network of employers. The most common responses to surveys by employers are assembled into a series of workshops designed to highlight common barriers to successful employment.
The workshops address soft skills barriers to employment and build and reinforce an individual’s ability to manage interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships in a manner that ensures productive engagement in the labour market.
Directions For Wellness Inc. workshops are solidly based and delivered from an Adult Educational perspective. The workshops are designed to:
Engage the individual’s preferred learning style
Be experiential based utilizing Dr. David Kolb theories
Engage the cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains
The workshops are based on and modified from Saskatchewan NewStart Life Skills methodology. These experiential based workshops allow participants the opportunity to improve their intra and interpersonal skill development.
safe work environment
building cohesive teams
Directions for Wellness has been very beneficial for our business. The hotel and restaurant industry always experiences high turnover and cost related to training. Not only has Directions for Wellness provided access to government financial compensation during the training period it has allowed us to seek out and train employees that require some additional training time that we may not have considered if we did not have access to the program. Wayne and Dianna have been very knowledgeable and supportive for the candidates entering into the program and us the employer. It is a great program and I hope it continues to benefit people heading back into the work force as well as the employers.
