Agostino De Gasperis
Vice-President of People
LABATT BREWERIES OF CANADA
Labatt is one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, and a trendsetter in company culture in and outside the industry. De Gasperis has been there since 2002, being promoted to VP of People in 2010. His background in finance and business has provided the requisite foundation, say industry analysts, for any HR professional hoping to steer one of the largest worker pools in Canadian manufacturing.
“Being in charge of the People function and being responsible for all our employees gives me the opportunity to do that, to make a positive impact on the lives of our employees and help them realize their full potential,” he told HRD.
Labatt head office initiatives are winning attention for their progressive stance, including onsite amenities such as a nap room for employees needing a quick rest and a fitness facility and employee lounge stocked with video games, pool table, foosball and board games – not to mention the onsite bar.
