Innovating with People

During our 150th Anniversary, Canadians have been celebrating the achievements of people. As we meet the challenges of an unknown future, we know for certain that people will be involved. Successful companies looking to grow are focusing on their people, emphasizing trust, commitment, relationships and other core values even as they strive to innovate in a highly technological world.

  • We learn that it is important to re-imagine what an innovative worker looks like and re-define business success in an age of technology, and that innovation is a process that starts with an organization’s culture and core values. 
  • We discover that big data is making it possible to provide personalized medicine and meet the needs of individual patients with depression and other illnesses. 

People and Benefits
