Cultivating A Transformation-Ready Workplace Culture
in its 40 years of operations. The Canadian consumer, customer and industry landscapes were changing fast and the company’s Executive Committee laid out a new 2020 strategic plan to address the growth opportunities ahead. Against the backdrop of this new plan and significant transformation agenda, and a newly-appointed President, PFC Communications seized the opportunity to lead an organizational culture change which was critical for the company’s long-term success. The result was a multi-year communications strategy which both engaged employees and transformed the culture to embrace transformation and growth.

Identify an opportunity to connect multiple business events to elevate and transform the company’s internal communications strategy
