February 5th brought an alert of yet another storm and if you live on the East Coast that has been our reality for the last few weeks. However the decision was made to continue with the PEI Consortium Strategic SIG event as scheduled.

We gathered in Bedeque PE with local manufacturers to discuss and share a best practice on Recruiting and Training. Stephen Hurst, President of Top Dog Manufacturing – a manufacturer of high quality protective garments – lead the event with a conversation / presentation on what his company has done to recruit and train workers by adding skilled temporary foreign workers to his HR strategy.

Discussions were sparked about overall processes used to attract, select and train suitable workers for various positions and the experience recruiting temporary foreign workers. While not even close to a perfect solution and certainly holds lots of challenges, this strategy is being used by progressive thinking employers. This event was a good example of how a discussion among peers is most valuable when you can share your challenges or successes.

Our next PEI consortium event is taking place on March 4th so put down the shovel and come join us.

See you there!
