Sarah McVanel – Leading HR Expert & Movement Maker Announced as Conference Keynote Speaker

NHNSA is pleased and excited to announce that Sarah McVanel, a leading expert in Strategic Human Resources Management, a movement maker and dynamic presenter, will be the keynote speaker at our spring conference, Standing Strong- Compassion, Leadership, & Innovation on March 28 at the Glengarry Inn in Truro.
McVanel will deliver the talk, “The Immense Power of Recognition: Build Retention, Resilience and a Thriving Culture Through Meaningful Connection and Abundant Appreciation”. Sarah is a recognition expert, professional speaker, coach, author, recovering perfectionist, and movement maker and founder of F.R.O.G. Forever Recognize Others’ GreatnessTM. With 25 plus years of experience, she invigorates companies to see their people as exceptional so that, together, they can create a scrumptious, thriving culture where everyone belongs.
McVanel says, “By being solution focused and resilient in changing times, we can help to build a healthy and recognition-rich team. Recognition is the single, most effective, and cost-efficient way that organizations can decrease burnout, sick time, change fatigue, and hiring costs. The reward? Increased employee retention, safety, innovation, and customer satisfaction… and that’s just the starting point. What organization doesn’t need this in a competitive marketplace with a talent shortage?”
Many passionate, brilliant people in LTC are striving to do their best yet are often overworked and feeling under appreciated individually and as a sector. There are similarly well-intentioned, dedicated leaders who wish to show appreciation to their people but are juggling many demands and unsure if their efforts will make a real difference. Perhaps add to that scenario a recognition program that has not been revamped in years or gets rushed through, and you have a recipe for disengagement and even turnover!
How do we bridge that gap? Recognition is the answer. There are three universal strategies that work instantaneously. As a result, you’re going to raise trust, boost satisfaction, deepen a sense of belonging, and you will go down in history as the best boss and colleague – ever! This approach is magical. And it creates a ripple effect. Leaders, employees, and everyone in between become excited again.
Join Sarah McVanel and colleagues from across Nova Scotia for a session that will introduce you to a proven process for self, team, and her organizational recognition- F.R.O.G.- Forever Recognize Others’ Greatness™. You will walk away ready to take action to shift your recognition culture, prepared to demonstrate in a new and meaningful way that resonates with them, just how valuable your team members are. You will retain and better recruit staff, right away!
