VERONICA BRETON

Human capital coordinator
Empire Communities

In the year that Veronica Breton has been with homebuilding company Empire Communities, she has already made a number of contributions to the HC department, including helping source and implement a new applicant tracking system, leading the onboarding program for multiple levels in the organization, and even participating in a recent employment termination case.

Breton is also part of the Joint Health & Safety Committee, which conducts health and safety inspections at head office, and has just received her first aid and CPR certification. To help implement relevant wellness initiatives, she has organized lunch-and-learn sessions for employees. “Although she is very early in her career, she is an achiever who already thinks strategically and adapts to any situation,” says a colleague. “She can see what we are trying to achieve [as an organization].”
