Whitecourt Business Support Network

Whitecourt's Business Support Network provides support to employers through a forum that shares ideas, exchanges information on current labour market trends and provides an opportunity to identify and support solutions to address workforce issues.

The Whitecourt Business Support Network is hosting industry specific speaker series that will feature a specific industry each month to provide employers with tangible best practice toolkits to enhance workforce attraction and retention practices.

On January 25, join the Business Support Network and Trucking HR Canada to learn how to successfully recruit and retain employees in the transportation industry.

Join Craig Faucette from Trucking HR Canada to explore diversity, equity and inclusion, flexible workplaces, communication best practices, changes in compensation, immigration system, and incentive programs.

Free to attend. Lunch will be provided by Whitecourt Transport.
