2017 Event

The 2017 event focused on the theme of "facing challenges, building on strengths"—recognizing that Atlantic Canada’s economy faces an uphill struggle. Despite slow and patchy growth, the pressures on HR will not decrease. Shifting demographics mean that HR leaders must keep focusing on how to recruit and retain their people and develop the next generation of leaders.

The crest of the Baby Boom wave has hit the Atlantic region with full force and poses one of the biggest threats to employers and the whole region as the population ages. It’s critical that Atlantic employers work hard to create workplaces that encourage youth to stay in the region and attract new immigrants to grow the workforce.

This year’s event looked at the challenges that employers face, and focused on the strengths they must foster to grow a strong workforce that will benefit the region and the economy.
