TODD GILCHRIST

Vice-president of people legal privacy
ALBERTA HEALTH SERVICES

In 2014, Todd Gilchrist joined the executive leadership team of Alberta Heath Services, which, with more than 100,000 employees, is the largest employer in Alberta and one of the top four largest employers in Canada. Establishing presence in such a massive organization is a challenge in itself, and Gilchrist has purposely been visible throughout AHS by being physically present in each of the five geographic zones across the province at least twice a year. Gilchrist doesn’t hesitate to get his hands dirty – he participates in all the initiatives he expects employees to take part in, even shaving his head as promised when the HR staff reached an 85% response rate for its employee engagement survey.

AHS’s people strategy had ground to a halt prior to Gilchrist’s arrival, but it has since been completed, launched and publicized. Dr. Verna Yiu, president and CEO of AHS, was glowing in her assessment of Gilchrist’s work with the organization: “Todd is actionoriented, a people person, and provides great advice and leadership, not only to the senior leaders, but to all of the organization.”
