June 2019 Health & Technology Town Hall Meeting
Bringing together the Brampton and Toronto Campuses, Hanson’s June 2019 Town Hall meeting began with an opportunity for staff and faculty from the two campuses to catch up.
As a result of Hanson’s growth in 2019, the meeting kicked off with an introduction for seventeen new employees from the four campuses in Ontario. After a fun-filled round of “Hanson Bingo” to break the ice, President and CEO Shouyi Ma took the audience through the company’s 18-year journey to showcase its historical growth.
Mr. Ma shared his future vision of the company with “Hanson 3.0” and portrayed how the company will strengthen business through significant infrastructure expansion and the development of internal talent from within Hanson through training. “It is important to remember that we have had over 6,000 graduates; that translates to over 6,000 lives touched and journeys that we have facilitated in Canada” said Mr. Ma.
Newly appointed Regional Director of Ontario Manny Bassi shared his inspiring 8-year Hanson journey from his first position as a Placement Coordinator. With an ongoing dedication to his career despite the twists and turns, Mr. Bassi highlighted opportunities for growth and Hanson’s investment in staff development.
Geraldine Kehoe, Vice President of Human Resources, followed with a presentation of Hanson’s agile culture, emphasizing the importance of the work and why it matters. Kehoe reminded the audience that they were all brought together by a passion for education and student success.
Following the Management Presentation, an extended Q&A session was held and there was an overwhelmingly engaged response. The management team efficiently answered the employee inquiries regarding personal development, employee benefits, and career paths within Hanson.
At Hanson, every voice matters, and we truly value and appreciate the feedback that we receive, as it encourages continued improvement and service excellence.
