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.
