Speaking out for a better path forward:
As employers, we know first-hand that thoroughly engaged employees make a big difference. They give small businesses a competitive-advantage. They make small and medium-sized organizations more productive by lowering costs associated with staff turnover.
Household spending and consumer confidence are pillars of our economy – everyone does better when people have disposable income and time to call their own. And we’ve seen what happens to our businesses and organizations – and to the local economy, when decent jobs disappear from our communities.
That’s why investing in our employees is not only an investment in the long-term success of our companies – it’s an investment in our community and the whole Canadian economy. It just makes good business sense.
