Pamela Wagner and Peggy Gizen combined their professional experience and became partners in establishing Being Human Services Inc. with the mission to help people and organizations to "do better and "be better".

After successfully delivering Employment Training and Placement Services to unemployed Albertans and newcomers to Canada from 2013 until 2022, Being Human Services has now moved to a new phase of operations.  We no longer offer Employment Training and Human Resources Services, and now focus our energies on delivering high quality Team Building and Corporate Training workshops.

 

Pamela has retired from her Counselling, Consultation, and Human Resources role but continues to be a Shareholder in the Company.  Peggy continues in her role as Facilitator, with her in-demand workshops.

 

The historic building at 222 South Railway Street continues to house a range of services and supports for Newcomers operated by several organizations.  For information on renting space in our facility, go to Office Space For Lease.
