The Canadian Press: Esther Bye

APRIL

April | Mentor

Esther Bye, HR Advisor, on intern Brendan McGeagh

“Brendan is exceptionally smart and genuinely kind. He helped us with a great deal of new initiatives, policy writing and cleaning up our files and creating consistent templates. We were able to train him on our payroll system and gave him many opportunities to learn in as many areas as he could.

His competence and quiet communication style put people at ease and helped to calm some heated debates.

He was working for us on a contract but has since moved on to something new. He is much missed, and I hope to be able to work with him again in the future.”
