I have partnered with Gord over the last 10+ years in the capacity of a consultant for employee benefits programs. We have developed a strong and productive working relationship based on integrity and trust. On the benefits side, Gord understands the balancing act of providing a meaningful and valued program to employees with the long term cost pressures involved in health and dental benefits in Canada. I have worked with Gord in everything from overall benefits strategy, design and ultimately successful implementation of company benefits programs that compliment organizational total rewards strategies.
I have worked with Gord over the past 15 years on a variety of different consulting assignments. Assignments ranging from business strategy, organization design, leadership development, organization change management projects and executive coaching. Gord has a broad-based human resources background that he brings to bear on these types of organizational human capital issues. His values-based approach to leadership, coupled with his human capital insights makes him a strong business partner. Always enjoy working with him.
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Gord MacDonald over the past ten years at Alliance Data Systems, LoyaltyOne. I have always been impressed with Gord’s level of professionalism and remarkable ability to work with people at all levels within an organization. He is a genuine leader, eager to develop his direct reports, takes a great deal of pride in his work, and is extremely goal-oriented. His passion and caring for people, speak volumes about the superior nature of him. It is clear to me as I hope it is to anyone in the business community, Gord MacDonald is an exceptional HR leader, one that contributes greatly to any organization.
