& Training



Navigation Consulting & Training (NavCT) was founded by Martin Franchi and Shelly Meadows to support healthy work environments as a business imperative for organizational success through strategic HR consulting, training & development, and workplace harassment investigations.

Fostering and maintaining a healthy work environment makes sound business sense, can have a positive impact on the bottom line, and can differentiate your organization from your competitors. Reduced absenteeism, lower employee turnover, improved employee engagement and productivity are some of the benefits of a business that is fully supportive of their employees as well as their health and safety concerns.

We would like to hear from you


These are some of the many services we can provide your business.

Workplace Harassment Investigations

Workplace harassment allegations are not uncommon in the workplace and employers are obligated to investigate. These can be challenging situations. Whether you need an independent third party to investigate and provide a report, or you’re undertaking the investigation in-house but require advice or assistance throughout the process, we can help! We offer rates that are more competitive than hiring a lawyer.

Speaking Engagements & Facilitation

Have us speak at your corporate events, conferences, in-house training, or on panel discussions on a variety of topics (see “Training & Development”); By sharing first-hand experiences these topics can be engaging and extremely useful to organizations of any size.

Do you have your own training content but not the resources to deliver it to all your employees? Whether time is the issue, or your in-house resources find presenting to a large group too daunting, let NavCT take the in-class facilitation off your hands.

Covid-19 Assistance Returning to Work

Do you need assistance with your organization’s return to work policies and protocols as we continue to progress to the next phase of reopening?

Hi and welcome to the NavCT Blog! Here we will share information with you on a variety of helpful Health & Safety (H&S) topics. Whether it’s a periodic reminder of specific regulatory requirements to help you assess your organization’s compliance, information regarding Ministry of Labour inspection blitzes, or sharing research or views on topical H&S issues, we hope you will come back often to see what’s new and happening in the world of workplace health & safety.
