Helen helped develop its Payroll & HR products and services.  Helen has also been a representative on two Canadian government committees with the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA), where she helped shape changes to payroll legislation that impacted payroll providers and employers alike.

Helen is an expert when it comes to developing best practices for building client and user-friendly Payroll & HR tools.  She believes every employee has the right to feel valued and with Mental Health issues related to stress and work on the rise, Helen in response developed a #HumanFirst mantra.  She now applies this philosophy to everything she does.  Subsequently, Helen now works as a consultant, contributing author and blogger covering all areas of Payroll & HR and she also runs a small consultancy called “Life Works Well” that helps organizations create high-performance, people-focused workplaces.

Helen is now a sought-after speaker, engaging a captive audience at DisruptHR, CPA (Canadian Payroll Association) and HRPA’s annual conferences and in this episode, we find out more about exactly how Payroll & HR practices differ in Canada from the way we process here in the UK.  We also discover what the similar nuances are too!

A huge advocate for promoting women in leadership and motherhood in the workplace – we discover her views on what businesses can do to embrace motherhood in the workplace and we learn first-hand why this is an aspect of Helen’s life that she is hugely passionate about because ultimately, businesses can do a lot more…

In this episode of The Payroll Podcast, we also explore Helen’s passions and mentorship skills, work-life and caregiving strategies and how she achieves her focus of helping employers develop strategies that can support employees to enable them to manage their life and work challenges more effectively.
