Seeking volunteers to help with a staff and volunteer survey

Baycrest is currently recruiting volunteers to help conduct a staff and volunteer survey. During lunchtime, we will have a table in front of the Baycrest cafeteria, where volunteers will greet staff and other volunteers, encourage their participation and offer them a chocolate or fruit treat as an added incentive. The survey can be taken online, so we will provide iPad tablets for the volunteers to use.

The survey table in front of the cafeteria is scheduled for Tuesday, August 29 and Wednesday, August 30, and help is needed between the hours of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Training will be provided on the same day.

Please join us to help make our survey a success! To get involved, please send an email to marketing@baycrest.org
