CPHR Atlantic Presents: HR Safe Space

(CPHR Atlantic Presents: HR Safe Space is a series of events that members can take one or more as their schedule permits)

As HR professionals, we experience a unique set of challenges in our careers that are best understood by our peers. We are so focused on supporting others that we often don’t get to take care of ourselves! This can lead to feelings of compassion fatigue, frustration and burnout.

Enter HR Safe Space. A place to come together with peers from all across Atlantic Canada to build connections and foster resilience through sharing common challenges and strategies to overcome them. A place to breathe, a place to “turn off” when you otherwise need to be “on” all day.

Drop in for the sessions that resonate most with you, or come to every single session. The format is lightly structured and is intended to be here as and when you feel you need it. So take some time out for you, just for you, and know that there is always a safe space to land when you need it.
