Lloyd B. Kenney
Lloyd graduated from the School of Agriculture, the University of Saskatchewan in 1963. He was subsequently employed for 35 years by a major Western Canadian manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing organization. His various responsibilities through several different positions, includedsales, marketing, operations, facility development,recruitment, hiring and monitoring.
During his career, he attended numerous courses, seminars and workshops on a wide variety of topics. However, a seminar/workshop on “Performance Planning and Review” was by far the most valuable in improving management skills.
Following retirement in 1998, he assisted some small businesses relative to Job Descriptions and Performance Appraisals. Those projects, along with other business contacts, led him to conclude that few small to medium-sized businesses and organizations have implemented the kinds of programs he had been using to great advantage for more than 20 years. There is an obvious need for such a program, so he began developing a Performance Planning Package adapted to the requirements of those businesses and organizations that had implemented little, if anything, in that area.
The program now being used in his work with a wide range of employers is based on practical, proven methods to improve productivity by having businesses meet their objectives through employees meeting their individual objectives. This is achieved through Job Descriptions, Orientation Checklists, Workplans, Appraisals, Employee Career Plans and the associated forms, worksheets and guidelines.
Starting in 2004, Lloyd teamed with Darel Baker, from Keldar Leadership, to conduct a series of one-day seminars and workshops on Recruitment, Hiring and Performance Planning to many business and organization owners and managers. Included in those sessions was an introduction to Lloyd’s “Hire for HIPPA, Train for Skill” concept, which illustrates the need to increase the emphasis on personal attributes in the hiring process.
Currently, Lloyd is collaborating with associates Darel Baker and Alain Gauthier to extend The Performance Planning Program and various seminars and workshops to a wider audience. New initiatives include making training and complete Performance Planning programs available to clients via the internet, including this site.
Since 2003, Lloyd has also been marketing LegalShield (formerly Pre-Paid Legal Services) and more recently, IDShield, to further assist businesses and organizations with legal services and individual identity theft restoration. Those services also contribute to improved productivity and employee job satisfaction through their use as part of an Employee Group Plan.
