“Canada’s business profile is overwhelmingly positioned in the small and medium-sized business space; these businesses are the backbone of the communities we call home. Often, within their daily operations, there is not time for business owners and managers to accomplish all that is necessary for success – including the time to think about critical human resource planning. That is why we are so pleased to be part of the Career Management Playbook for Small Business; this resource provides realistic tools to assist small and medium-sized businesses in attracting and retaining employees who will become an important part of their future success strategy.”
