Fostering a positive culture is one of the most effective ways to achieve organizational goals. Your culture should reflect the collective values, beliefs and behaviours of the company. In 2017, Symcor set out on a culture transformation journey to align with its growth strategy. A company wide effort over the past four years helped Symcor achieve a high-performance culture that has been resilient and agile in the face of a global pandemic.

Symcor’s Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President, Dee Dee Milner, was a recent guest on the Culture Conversations podcast hosted by Toronto-based culture and leadership consultancy, Hazel & Collins Associates (HCA).
