The Bagg Group-Sponsored HRPA Scholarship: An Opportunity for the HR Students in Your Company
The Bagg Group and HR professionals across the GTA share much in common. Our staffing solution experts and the HR professionals are both committed to ensuring organizations have productive, engaged individuals who have the drive and the support to meet their potential.
It is in the spirit of partnership that The Bagg Group has been sponsoring an HRPA scholarship for 22 years. We are the only agency to sponsor this important award that facilitates a student’s study and career in human resources. It is an initiative that is close to our hearts. Promoting the careers of those who have proven competencies and motivation to help organizations succeed has been our trademark since 1971.
This year, we are delighted to champion the 2010 HRPA scholarship winner. Jennifer Kroft is a workplace discrimination and harassment prevention advisor with the Ontario Public Service. She is currently completing her Human Resources Certificate program at Georgian College. As well, she is taking an introductory business course to expand her knowledge in this area.
All of us at The Bagg Group are impressed with Jennifer’s demonstrated leadership and her drive to help others succeed.
Jennifer is a long-time tutor who has been tutoring students in the HR program at Georgian College. She has completed a Master’s Degree at Wilfred Laurier University in religion and culture. While at Laurier, Jennifer worked at the Accessible Learning Centre, designing and presenting orientations for students with disabilities to introduce them to the services of the centre.
This past summer, Jennifer was responsible for designing the training for Bill 168 and delivering it to approximately 160 managerial and non-managerial staff and volunteers.
Prior to attending University, she worked for Local 183 Universal Workers as a construction laborer, as well as at General Motors and Ontario Hydro. These experiences allowed her to learn from the inside what unions and labour relations are all about.
