What our clients are saying about Howatt HR

Dr. Bill Howatt's leadership session on building psychologically safe workplaces was extremely well-received by our audience of Ontario Public Service leaders. It had the largest attendance to date for our mental health speakers series. Dr. Howatt's dynamic presentation style engaged participants throughout the session, and those in attendance said it helped them to better understand their pivotal role in fostering psychological health and safety among their own teams.

Kristen DelormeAssistant Deputy Minister, OPS

Great session!! Bill what you presented truly resonated with the people managers and will equip them with some tools so they can focus on their mental fitness plan while enabling their teams. A big thank you to you from us for the presentation and Q&A segment today. Everything went off without a hitch, on schedule, and everyone loved the material and the conversation. Thank you for your support through the engagement, planning and delivery of this very important topic!

The Durham District School Board retained Howatt HR to assist us in better understanding the current organizational culture and to provide clear recommendations for action. The circumstances of the District are complex and Howatt HR facilitated a structured and caring process that engaged staff in all roles. I was impressed with their level of expertise in psychological health and safety. Howatt HR's approach assisted staff in feeling comfortable and their level of compassion and sensitivity was a catalyst for hope within the organization. This process allowed many staff to have a voice that helped us not only understand where to start rebuilding but also helped many to start to heal.We received insights that resonated with many staff, as well as concrete steps for what actions we can take to have an impact. As the CEO of the organization, they assisted me as well in navigating an emotionally charged landscape through their responsive approach to developments. We are grateful for having Howatt HR as a partner and would highly recommend them to any school board interested in staff mental health, and psychological health and safety.
