Trucking Human Resources Council – Atlantic

By George Fullerton

Late this past winter the Trucking Human Resources Council – Atlantic (THRSC-A) hosted a conference focusing on Building Inclusive Workplaces. THRSC-A executive Director Kelly Henderson commented, “Our keynote speaker was incredible and we received very positive feedback from attendees.”
Keynote speaker, Buhle Dlamini, is an international business consultant, speaker and facilitator who has been motivating audiences around the world for more than a dozen years. Born in South Africa, Dlamini is currently based in Canada. As the trucking industry increasingly markets to culturally diverse customers and employs an increasingly culturally diverse staff, Dlamini’s message was to develop a cross cultural mindset in order to succeed in a culturally diverse environment. Todd Seaward, General Manager Classic Freight and Chairperson of THRSC-A, reflected that Dlamini’s message was particularly engaging and informative. “One of his main points which I took home was to not set limitations in regards to an employee potential.” Dlamini holds that employees have individual abilities and may also possess the potential to take on additional challenges and responsibilities. It is important that supervisors not make assumptions or set limitations for employees, but rather provide opportunities for them to take on new challenges and reach their higher potential.
