The Value of Participation
"Businesses must reconnect company success with social progress. Shared value is not social responsibility, philanthropy, or even sustainability, but a new way to achieve economic success. It is not on the margin of what companies do but at the center. We believe that it can give rise to the next major transformation of business thinking."
Creating Shared Value, Harvard Business Review, 2011
CEO Health + Safety Leadership Network members understand the connection between organizational health and business success. And, they understand the cumulative and value-added impact of standing together to form a culture of health and safety beyond their own workplaces.
In addition to optimizing their own organizational health and safety performance and return-on-investment, Network members are:
- Demonstrating health and safety through their leadership
- Building brand value and enhancing corporate reputation
- Influencing provincial and national health and safety policy and ensure your business requirements are represented in critical conversations
- Contributing to the transformation of health and safety culture in Ontario and, in collaboration with other Charters, across Canada
- Accessing exclusive research and information
- Contributing to provincial sustainability and growth
- Celebrating health and safety leadership and encouraging others to contribute to a culture of health and safety
"I am of the strong opinion that health and safety thrive whenever we share. We can't do this alone. The Network provides an opportunity to share and influence, and will help with overall performance."
Brett Abram, VP Human Resources, Sleep Country
"The presentation was timely. I've shared my notes with the executive team. We are about to roll out our five-year safety plan so we can modify in the next review based on this information."
Roy Slack, President, Cementation Canada Inc.
"This will be another tool in our toolbox. The key will be educating employees on brain-centered hazards and helping them understand that these are real."
