Dana Gidge

B. Comm (hons.), CHRP, CHRL
HR Consulting Manager

Dana shows dedication and care in everything she does. She has been an HR professional for most of her career and her passion started early as she realized the best part of HR was relationship building. She enjoys creating an environment where employees can think big, have fun, and do good work. She understands that people are a business’ best asset and working on engaging employees is rewarding for all involved. Dana is well versed in many HR functions but her many years in the manufacturing industry has given her valuable experience in health and safety, training and development and legislative compliance. She is no stranger to hands on work and draws from a diverse knowledge base. She is certified in WSIB, ISO 14001 (environmental) and many other Quality Standards (ISO, QS and TS) and is a Certified Human Resources Leader.

Her ability to make relationships makes her a valued member of the RLB HR consulting team. What makes client work interesting and rewarding for Dana is the relationship that she forms with the client. They trust her and in return she ensures they receive the best personal service and top notch HR practices in the industry.

Dana’s unrelenting passion outside HR is her family. She married her university sweetheart and moved to Ontario 15 years ago. She is the mother of two active boys who keep her on her toes! She knows what hard work is and prides herself on passion for her job, her family and her friends. She is a regular volunteer at her son’s schools, a Director on the Guelph District Human Resources Professional Association and a Sunday school small group leader at her church.
