VANCOUVER, Jan. 10 /CNW/ - Thinking beyond the scope of traditional
Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) services, PPC Canada has
partnered with Advantis Consulting Group, who specializes in
organizational effectiveness through leadership-management training.
PPC Canada and Advantis Consulting Group believe that leadership
training is highly complementary to EFAP services because they both
strive for the same goal, which is greater employee engagement leading
to increased productivity.
It is already known that EFAP programs contribute to employee engagement
and productivity. Research shows that when employees thrive in their
personal lives, they tend to achieve more in the workplace. General
life satisfaction leads to enhanced productivity.
But research also shows that employee engagement and workplace
productivity also depends on an employee's sense of job satisfaction
and one of the critical factors contributing to job satisfaction is
effective leadership and management.
Well-trained leaders and managers play a central role in creating a
healthy corporate environment leading to enhanced job satisfaction on
the part of employees.
Employees with high levels of job satisfaction are often found to be
more helpful, positive, creative, punctual, loyal, and productive.
"We're very excited about this opportunity to deliver enhanced value to
our customers though leadership training, and directly impact employee
productivity and performance. The first phase in this alliance includes
a series of ten high quality workshops for our customers," comments
Mike Miller, Vice President of Program Development, PPC Canada. Three
of the workshops focus on leadership, four on employee engagement, and
three on high performance. Each of the ten options represents a
half-day to full-day workshop. Customers also have the value-added
option of reviewing the workshop outline with Advantis Consulting Group
prior to the training to ensure that the workshop is customized to
"…it is full spectrum leadership" suggests Joan Deeks, President,
Advantis Consulting Group, "because we are focusing on enhanced
employee engagement from two critical viewpoints, one through employee
services and the other through leadership training. By partnering with
a common goal, we are confident that we will enhance employee
engagement and by extension, improve productivity in the workplace."
