Last chance to register for today's Free Advice - How to Work from Home Effectively & How COVID has impacted business and staff.

Join us on Wednesday, April 29th from 7 pm to 8 pm for a Virtual Meeting with Dr. Helen Ofosu (HR Consultant and Career Coach - HR & Career Psychologist IOA Advisory) & Jane A. Janniere (Staff Optimization - Boutique Staffing) as they discuss and offer solutions for how to Work from Home Effectively & How COVID-19 has impacted business and staff. 



Dr. Helen Ofosu has 20 years of experience using Work and Business Psychology (officially known as Industrial / Organizational Psychology) in the government, business, and non-profit sectors. Dr. Ofosu brings her vast knowledge, sensitivity, and special brand of humour to her career consultations, leadership development, executive coaching and group coaching.

Part of what makes her advisory services powerful and unique is that they are all grounded in Industrial / Organizational (I/O) Psychology. 

She completed her undergraduate studies at McMaster University and earned her Ph.D. in Industrial / Organizational (I/O) Psychology from the University of Windsor.

In addition to Career Coaching / Career Counselling, Dr. Ofosu's specialties include: developing hiring processes that allow employers to understand what job candidates can actually do rather than relying only on what candidates say during interviews. This is based on evaluating competencies (e.g., soft skills) in addition to knowledge and experience. Dr. Ofosu is skilled at the assessment and development of leadership skills, developing and delivering training, and navigating diversity and inclusion issues and the turmoil associated with workplace bullying and harassment. Dr. Ofosu has also developed expertise in using human resources (HR) and psychology as part of an organization's risk management strategy.

She helps organizations minimize the risks of cyber and other insider threats. She recognizes that many companies and organizations are concerned about cybersecurity. In this article, she asks "Is Cyber Security Alone Ever Enough?to highlight the fact that this exclusive focus on cybersecurity is incomplete. In this second article, she explains how Corporate Security Hinges on its People and the vulnerabilities that are due to insider threats. Most recently, she was an invited guest on Scott Wright and Tom Eston's Shared Security Podcast to talk about various aspects of this issue.

She's also discussed strategies for using HR and psychology to prevent insider threats on The Insider Threat Podcast. For the past several years, Dr. Helen Ofosu has maintained a blog where she's written over 180 articles about career development, career management, workplace culture, and HR-related issues.
