Our Office Manager, June Hamel -- March 1, 2023

Thank you for checking in with us as we begin a new look and approach to Health and Safety for Construction Workplace Safety Training Limited! I truly hope you like the accessibility of our new site, that it serves your needs, and helps make it easier for you to find the resources you need for your organizations.

In the last year we welcomed in a new face to the organization to oversee office operations. The Office Manager Position at CWST is quite dynamic and demanding, truly the front line for the company. The role requires strong attention to detail, being good with people, communicative, dealing with multiple vendors and clients' public inquiry on the products and services we offer, among many other things. Undertaking this function is not simply turn key, its cognitively demanding, mentally exhausting on some days and this big machine has many moving parts. The role is not easily assigned to just anyone.

Being a new business owner myself, I've learned change isn't easy. On March 1, 2022 June Hamel openly and willingly stepped in to succeed Lee Wylie as our Office Manager. For those of you who knew Lee, or had the privilege of working with her for nearly 14 years of service with CWST, those shoes would not be filled easily. 

Hearing clients tell me how much they appreciate June's flexibility, her willingness to help, watching her progressively improve our overall operation in the office the past year has been inspirational. Despite challenging days, she still heads home to continue her professional development through Georgian College in book keeping, payroll, and improving her administrative skillset so she can be the best she can be for herself, ultimately serving all of us.

I'm filled with gratitude as I reflect on June's positive disposition and tenacity to succeed despite a challenging 2022 with the instability of the workforce within the trades, the impacts of recession, inflation, and waiting for global events to shape our new now. 

Thank you for working with us the past year, for your continued loyalty and patronage as we continue to enter the next phase of growth and expansion for CWST. 

Until next time, work smart, stay safe and stay strong.
