Learning that matters to our members
CPB Canada provides industry-specific learning to keep you informed about industry updates, business best practices, accounting practices, and more! Take a look at our upcoming events below.
This session details 3 proven methods successful business owners use to attract and retain the right people. We'll also outline how to maximize these best practices in the context of remote teams, hybrid workplaces and all the new normals. Just like everything else in your business, there is a right way and a wrong way to build a successful team. Many business owners we meet are frustrated by their staff and buy into other people's negativity, believing that finding reliable, skilled employees is hard. Not only is it not hard, your successful peers are already doing it. Systems and processes build successful businesses. We'll show you the employee attraction and retention system we've been perfecting over the last 18 years, working with thousands of small to mid-sized companies.
