On June 14, 2018, Éric Dufour gave a presentation on bridging the generation gap at the Hotel Chicoutimi attended by numerous business leaders and representatives from the region’s socioeconomic sector.

The firm’s Business Transfer Leader and Regional Vice-President illustrated generational differences and emphasized the importance of identifying tendencies created by these gaps.

“You have to build bridges between these gaps. I’d like to see a more disciplined approach to taking action. There is a need for generational sharing, a 2020 bridge. Consider Luciano Pavarotti, the great classical singer, for example. What did he do in 1993? He decided to sing with rock stars such as Bono and Sting. His successful transition quickly silenced his critics. If he could do it, why can’t we?” Dufour stated.

Éric Dufour added that Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton has set up an advisory service that can help business people build generational bridges and support an efficient and well-planned entrepreneurial succession initiative.

The digital economy, climate change and changing demographics are among the many challenges facing today’s cities.

Members of the Association des directeurs généraux des municipalités du Québec (ADGMQ) met for their annual convention from June 6 to 8, 2018 in Rimouski under the theme “L’Humain au cœur de nos villes”.

As one of the event partners, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to be associated with the ADGMQ and to continue providing its support and expertise to municipalities to help them grow and improve their management.

Pierre Fortin, Partner, Management Consulting and Municipal Sector Leader presented a workshop during the event on major municipal issues.

He explains, “A municipality’s role is not limited to developing its territory. This proximity government must also support economic prosperity, ensure social cohesion, take on its environmental responsibilities and manage effectively and efficiently, all within the context of increasingly important new technological realities.”

Two years ago, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton transformed its work spaces at 600 De La Gauchetière St. West in Montréal, to foster collaboration by tearing down the silos between departments.

Catherine Hersent, Western Region General Manager, was asked to speak about this major project during the Gestion des espaces de travail (Managing work spaces) conference, presented by Événements Les Affaires on May 2, 2018.

In a Les Affaires article, Ms. Hersent explained all of the efforts deployed to create an innovative and collaborative work environment that would motivate employees.

According to a survey, the results were most positive for the firm, with more than 8 out of 10 employees stating they were very satisfied with the transformation:

“It’s good for business development and it promotes the sharing of ideas and experiences amongst employees, said Ms. Hersent. […] They enjoy being near to their colleagues, the lighting, the feeling of openness. They wouldn’t go back to the way things were.”
