Manufacturing Recovery Support Program

Overcoming Pandemic Impacts on Industry

 

"We can in no way assume the specific challenges, or maybe even opportunities, that the Pandemic has caused for each individual manufacturer, but this program is an opportunity for you to raise your hand and receive some relevant, funded support"

 

Executive Coaching & Subject Matter Expert Support : Book a meeting today

As we find ourselves now in January, and the challenges of the pandemic are on-going, the call for continued support is clear. It is difficult to know the exact challenge each organization is facing and the value of the NRC-IRAP and ACOA supported recovery programs has been well placed and utilized.

With the continued support of NRC, ACOA and our subject matter expert partners, we have developed and scheduled additional value-added learning sessions relevant to your input.  Our goal is to support organizations in being the best they can be under unprecedented circumstances; to set a different mindset towards solutions, to be innovative in exploring circumstantial opportunities while ensuring the wellbeing of an over extended staff, to fill vacant positions and yes, even grow!

Below,  you will see the sessions outlined. Follow the links for more information or to register and, as always, thank you for your valuable input and direction.
