TESTIMONIALS

Sheila is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. She presented the key points we requested without wasting time on material we did not require. Both our Human Resources and Health and Safety teams attended five two-hour sessions and found it very informative.

After completing the WSIB Training Series with Sheila and the Workplace Injury Management Team I feel much more confident in our ability to support our employees and manage our Return to Work Program effectively and confidently. The training series started with the basics and then progressed to cover a solid range of more unique circumstances, and many of real world examples were included. I would absolutely recommend this training series to others as a place to start in the development of their Return to Work strategy or as a solid refresher. I am hopeful Sheila’s Team will offer more content and updates in the future.
