What Other HR Professionals Are Saying…

I engaged Sean to host a Mental Health Workshop sponsored by our Women’s ERG (Employee Relations Group).   Sean came highly recommend and did not disappoint. His insightful and sensitive presentation included his personal story, his professional expertise, case studies for engagement, and follow-up resources for our employees. Working with him was a pleasure. He was proactive and gave much more than we asked for. I especially appreciated his sensitivity to issues of intersectionality.  Sean helped us break down barriers and have meaningful conversations about how to stay healthy and happy – in the workplace and beyond. I would not hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to others. Sherry McMillan – Richie Bros.

Sean is a fantastic Total Rewards Consultant. He has both breadth and depth in the key pillars of Total Rewards. Sean’s a strategic consultant with a bias for execution. We have appreciated his work on compensation strategy, benefits & wellness, development of a TR roadmap as well as HCM expertise. I would highly recommend Sean to any organization looking to advance their Total Rewards strategy. Tara Ataya, Chief People & Diversity Officer – Hootsuite

Sean is a devoted and transformative mental health leader. He led workshops for our leaders on mental health leadership and how to support staff well-being, mental health and coping with stress. Sean just ‘gets it’ – he has been a business leader himself so he understands the business side and connects with leaders in any department, but it’s the way Sean tells his personal story and connects with the audience that makes him so special. He gets leaders and staff thinking deeply through an open, non-judgemental yet highly informative style, sharing practical tools, ideas and asking powerful questions that make everyone think more deeply about the importance of mental health and how to stay well and resilient. I would recommend Sean again in a second and would be fortunate to work with him again! Eric Bulmash, Talent Development Manager – Nicola Wealth

Without question, Sean is one of the brightest minds in the Canadian HR industry. He continually drives progress for both the organization he represents and himself personally. Sean walks the walk, which makes him a leader people can rally behind. Sean’s open-minded and transparent leadership style makes him an ideal business partner. Sean brings a tremendous amount of energy, integrity and passion to everything he does and I truly enjoy every interaction I have with Sean — I always feel like I come away with a new perspective or thought-provoking insight. Jason Billard, SVP Western Region Leader – Morneau Shepell

Sean consulted with StemCell Technologies on several Compensation program matters, and brought to the table many strengths.  Aside from his deep, technical understanding of compensation principles and practices, his ability to translate to our Executive team was the ‘missing system’ supporting our very talented internal team.  He mentored and coached our internal resources and left them better equipped to do similar work in the future.  Most consultants who come and go, and your organization is made more efficient but not enriched by them.  Sean is not such a resource.  Instead, he came, and left us better off both technically and personally because he was here.  I would hire him again in a second!
