In his 33-year career with TD Canada Trust, Ernie Gross has
worn many hats.
And while staying with any employer for more than three
decades is somewhat of an anomaly these days, Gross couldn’t
be happier. After an initial stint in management, followed by 25
years in human resources, he recently landed his dream job.
It’s a position that allows him to focus on what he loves best:
coaching others to achieve success.
Gross is the associate vice president, Management Coaching at
TD Branch Banking, based in London, Ont. It’s a position that
was just created and he’s the first one to sit in the chair.
While he said that fact is partly terrifying, it’s also wildly exciting.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this job now! We’re going places we’ve
never gone before,” he said.
And while some people might be contemplating retirement
after so many years on the job, he said he’s not winding down. Just
the opposite, in fact: he’s ramping up.
“IF YOU GIVE PEOPLE THE
OPPORTUNITY TO THINK
FOR THEMSELVES THROUGH
THE BENEFITS GO BEYOND
