La marque employeur, levier pour l’amélioration continue

(The company brand, a continuous improvement lever)

Webinaire gratuit en Français avec Alex Carignan

29 Septembre, 2021 19:00

Une opportunité de réseautage débute à 18:30

Souvent vue comme un outil d’attraction et de rétention des employés, la marque employeur peut aussi favoriser le succès de vos opérations !
Que penseriez-vous si quelqu’un vous disait qu’un mélange de marketing et de RH au sein de votre organisation pourrait grandement améliorer vos processus de qualité et vos performances, ou que les employés pourraient travailler activement à trouver des solutions à un temps d’arrêt de machine de leur propre chef? C’est exactement ce que peut faire la mise en place d’une marque employeur.
Une marque employeur forte et efficace motive les employés. En sentant que leur organisation les soutient et se soucie d’eux, les travailleurs seront non seulement plus performants, mais chercheront également des moyens de résoudre les problèmes et d’améliorer les processus les impactant directement. Lorsqu’une marque employeur est bien implantée, elle responsabilise également les employés, ce qui leur donne la possibilité d’initier et de participer à des projets de qualité et d’amélioration continue.

Cette présentation définira le concept de marque employeur et couvrira les avantages et bénéfices sur vos processus de performance et de qualité.

Conférencier :
Alexis Carignan Depuis la fin de sa maîtrise en intervention et changements organisationnels, Alexis Carignan accompagne les organisations dans le développement de leur marque employeur et la gestion de leurs projets de changement. Il détient également un BAC en marketing. Il est d’avis qu’une approche humaine, soutenue par une bonne analyse des données est la clé du succès en gestion du changement.
De plus, ses expériences en marketing et en RH lui permettent de bien comprendre les enjeux humains des organisations afin de les accompagner efficacement dans la définition et la mise en place de leur marque employeur. Son but est non seulement de permettre aux organisations d’avoir une culture organisationnelle forte et durable, mais aussi de la mettre en œuvre afin de la faire vivre aux employés !

Rejoignez-nous !

Attendance will be worth 0.5 RU (Recertification Units) for ASQ.

Special Guest at Montreal Section

Ann-Jordan-ASQ-CEO 20210608

Ann Jordan, ASQ CEO virtually attended last night’s Montreal Section Leadership meeting (June 8, 2021) via Teams.
Yes, quite an honour for the Leadership Team. We also hosted Puneet Manchanda, the Canada Regional Director and Ruth Stanley, our Deputy RD as well as other directors. Ann wanted to meet the valiant team (70 years and counting) and present an overview of ASQ’s key strategic initiatives. Mission accomplished. She explained how ASQ has been working on refocusing on its members and offer more value as well as recognizing that technology now offers more opportunities for improving this… a weakness identified ‘late’ by ASQ. They will be refocusing on improving that, educational support and quality expertise, as well as providing it in a multi-language environment through the support of the new technologies. More information from HQ will be available in the fall. We will be watching, Ann.
PS: Ann Jordan has agreed to be the opening key-note speaker of the 2021 ASQ Canada & Greenland Region: National Bilingual Quality Conference hosted by the Montreal Section on the 4th and 5th of October. (Read more…)

ASQ 75 Years 2021-02-16 – On February 16, 1946, an alliance of distinguished professionals gathered in New York City to form a membership society dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of quality and the allied arts and sciences. Now known as ASQ, members have been delivering solutions to meet the world’s challenges ever since.

From our origins in World War II statistical control methodology to modern-day best practices for leveraging artificial intelligence, ASQ and the quality industry have always been at the forefront of change, disruption, and progress. We are excited to launch a year-long celebration to recognize the 75th year of this great Society and the remarkable contributions of its members, subject matter experts, and communities to advance the quality profession.

Building on the foresight of its founding members and drawing inspiration from the quality profession we serve, ASQ continues to improve the value of membership. In the coming months, I look forward to sharing a roadmap of projects to further the ASQ mission and position the Society for its next 75 years of growth and success. New initiatives such as the digital edition of Quality Progress, a digital transformation field guide from Quality Press, and the member-led COVID-19 Quality Response are detailed in the issue of The Insider. We are committed to enhancing the member benefits and offerings that are valuable to you and next-generation members.

As we embark on this milestone year, thank you for your continued ASQ membership and dedication to achieving excellence through quality.

Ann Jordan, CEO, ASQ
