August 2017 - Salus Global, the parent company of the MOREOB, AMPROOB, and MOREEX Programs is pleased to announce that they are celebrating their 10th anniversary this summer. Named after both the Roman goddess of health and prosperity and the Latin word for “health, wellness, prosperity, good wishes and safety”, Salus Global was established in 2007 as a strategic partnership between the Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC) and the Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (SOGC).
WALTHAM, MA/LONDON, ON – The Relational Coordination Research Collaborative and Salus Global Corporation announced jointly today that Sally Rogers of Salus Global Corporation has successfully attained the coveted designation of a Relational Coordination Certified Professional. The Relational Coordination Research Collaborative (RCRC), based at The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University counts among its foundational principles, communication and relating for the purpose of task integration – a powerful driver of performance when work is interdependent, uncertain and time constrained. RC Certified professionals are certified for their skills in helping organizations use relational coordination principles and metrics for fostering positive organizational change. They have a common set of skills and come from two kinds of backgrounds - some are trained primarily in organizational development and process consultation while others are trained primarily in work process improvement methods. These two backgrounds bring complementary skills for successful RC interventions. Unlike certification programs that offer a certificate based on course attendance, this program consists of a rigorous peer review process involving two change initiatives, which can take from several months to more than a year. RC Certification is governed by the RCRC Board and its Training and Certification Committee. To see a full list of RC Certified professionals, visit rcrc.brandeis.edu.
