As we near the end of 2017, Canadian businesses are thinking full speed ahead about the coming year. Having a solid HR plan can support your organization’s objectives, overcome any human resources hurdles you may encounter, and help you stay ahead of your competitors. This is true across the board; regardless of your industry or the size of your organization, having an HR plan is a driver of success. After all, companies rely on their people, so it is essential that every company has the right people in the right positions at the right time doing the right things. Since employee compensation is often the single biggest business expenditure, a solid plan is needed to ensure that the price of attracting and retaining talent remains within your budget. This is not a situation that remains static; people come and go, needs and skills change, and organizations must be prepared to deal with these changes or risk falling behind the pack.
