Over the course of his impressive career at TELUS, Cal was known for driving results and making significant contributions to our business. He is well known for his ability to build strong relationships across the organization, and I know the team benefited greatly from his passion and commitment to making TELUS a great place to work.
When it comes to specific achievements in his role within the National Business Delivery team, there are many worth highlighting, the most significant being the focus and commitment he drove relating to our People & Culture strategy. His accomplishments included:
- Establishing a People & Culture Roadmap that defined our team from a strategy, structure and culture perspective – who we are, what we do and how we do it
- Implementing a process to drive continuous improvement based on direct feedback from the team (XIP)
- Establishing a structure for supporting team members to grow their careers within the team and TELUS (CPM)
- Developed a People & Culture framework for our team that served to help team members align their personal passion with their career and facilitated workshops to align team members and leaders across our organization reaching more than 700 leaders and team members across the country
- All activities supported an incredible 31 percentage point improvement in Team Engagement over a four year period (54% in 2011 to 85% in 2015)
