“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go. They merely determine where you start.” —Nido Qubein
We are just five weeks away from our first annual Forestry Innovation Symposium! We have an amazing lineup of speakers and presenters. There is something for all employers in the forestry supply chain, with a focus on workforce development and innovation. Contractors, mills, researchers, innovators, and landowners—everyone is welcome!
Plan to come and have some fun while building new business relationships, and get clear messages and fresh new ideas, connecting with the sector community. Registration deadline is February 10, 2023.
Exciting news—we are happy to announce our Forestry Event Calendar, specific to industry events. This was recently launched during a website refresh to help keep you in the know! Click on the events tab to see upcoming events happening in the sector.

Here we offer you current HR tips and best practices in each issue of our newsletter
Employers want and need to retain the employees they have, more importantly now that we are in a labour crisis. Finding premium employees is one thing but keeping them is a whole other challenge.
Retention needs to be monitored throughout the employee lifecycle. Keeping employees happy and engaged helps reduce turnover and improves work culture, increases productivity and builds better work relationships.
