EPISODE 25 – HERMIE ABRAHAM – ON THE BIGGEST MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE WHEN GETTING A NEW JOB, VALUE OF CREATING WIN-WIN SOLUTIONS AND FINDING THE RIGHT COMMUNITY
Today we are talking with Hermie Abraham a Labour & Employment Lawyer and Founder of Advocation Professional Corporation.
Hermie started out her professional career in HR at some pretty impressive companies and then one day decided it was time to quit her full time job and go to law school.
Hermie has been a lawyer for over 15 years and for the last seven years has owned and operated her own firm. She founded Advocation Professional Corporation with the goal to help employers and employees create workplaces that both are proud to belong to. She works collaboratively with her clients and believes it is important to understand your rights in the workplace.
Advocation Professional Corporation offers services to help people who have lost their job, have been sexually harassed or if there is any workplace discrimination, bullying or investigations any type of situation that would require some strategic advice or legal council.
Hermie has been featured in various legal and human resources publications including Lawyer’s Weekly and HR Professional Magazine. She has also been regularly featured in the media to help break down employment law and provide expertise on workplace policies. You will find her on Global News, the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail just to name a few.
Hermie is super passionate, extremely knowledgeable and very practical. She is always so generous with her time and is willing to share her knowledge and expertise in order to help empower others. She operates from a place of helping people clearly understand what is happening, why it is happening and how she can help and if she can’t help you, she will point you in the right direction.
One of the things I admire most about Hermie is her willingness to leave a place of comfort, take a leap into something new and be willing to work hard to figure it out and make it work. She is not afraid to move forward and she is also not afraid of being honest even if it is not a popular opinion or belief. Her logic, style of negotiation and how she presents an argument are unmatched. There are always so many lessons learned after an engaging conversation with her.
I am sure you will find more than one or two things to take away from this podcast.
In this episode, Hermie and I discuss the following:
