Who We’ve Served

Tourism Human Resources Canada

Leadership, Management and Staff Development Resources

4Forward has led the design and development of numerous training resources for THRC (previously known as CTHRC), including online resources, orientation courses, self-directed workbooks, and instructor manuals. All resources were learner-centred and emphasized hands-on experiential learning, case studies, and relevant, practical scenarios. All resources included evaluation materials and answer keys. The courses and other learning resources have been delivered nationwide to a wide range of audiences of various ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. One of these resources – The Food and Beverage Manager Instructor’s Guide – covered many management topics including Human Resource Management (hiring, orientation, team building, and evaluation), Risk Management, Leadership (communication, effectiveness), Managing Work (planning and goal setting), and Self-Management (time management, communication).
