In addition, the Forum offers rich employee assistance programs that are designed to offer employees and their families the support they need, from 24-hour helplines to medical benefits and leave policies.

The Forum also offers a process through which appropriate accommodation can be made for individuals with specific individual needs.

Centre Strategy and Management

“The organization is very flat, and with that comes both pressure and opportunity. The stress and excitement that comes from it is unparalleled.”

A Learning Organization

The Forum is a workplace like no other. It is at once an expert network, a think-tank, a consultancy, a not-for-profit and a platform for impact.
