BMO’s Lynn Roger Takes On “Sensitivity Training”

Lynn Roger

Gender-based collaboration, Twitter/texting/, experiential CVs, Google+, fictionalized personalities: They are all having a profound impact on the way we communicate, interact and establish a new set of competencies for the future. Etiquette, traditional skills, social interaction and decision-making no longer look the same. Lynn will discuss how and why employers must harness new competencies, educators re-think approaches to learning, and individuals develop a new protocol toolkit.

Lynn Roger, Senior Vice-President, Talent Strategies and Executive Resourcing of BMO Financial Group, will be one of the distinguished panelists for The Corporate State: Toronto‘s “Sensitivity Training: Protocols for the Future” panel to be held on October 2, 2012 at First Canadian Place.

Under her leadership, the ‘customer voice’ has moved to the very top of the HR agenda, and the alignment between business and HR strategy has strengthened, including a more disciplined and focused approach on Human Capital Planning, Employee Engagement and Leadership Development. Early on, her team broke new ground in response to Canada’s rapidly changing demographics, introducing a cutting edge collective approach with a consistent methodology for the assessment of talent across BMO Financial Group.

Ms. Roger’s extensive background in Human Resources includes Employee Relations, Talent Acquisition, Leadership Development, Succession Planning and the development of corporate and business specific HR strategies.  She has led many teams in several of BMO’s banking operations, including various roles in Talent Management.   Currently she has enterprise-wide accountability for advancing the Talent and Diversity & Inclusion agenda.

Lynn’s particular talents in the world of HR and Talent Management will bring a resoundingly relevant view to harnessing the new protocols in our increasingly complicated world. 

Lynn will join fellow panelists Gerri Sinclair of The Gerri Sinclair Group, Sidneyeve Matrix of Queen’s University, Shirlee Sharkey of Saint Elizabeth Health Care, Neville Wilson of Knightsbridge and Moderator Beth Wilson of KPMG LLP for this powerhouse discussion.
