Before wrapping up her role as Minister of Human Resources Development, Jane Stewart announced this week $170,000 of funding for two projects of the Canadian Plastics Sector Council (CPSC). The Targeted Career Promotion and the Employee Retention/Turnover and Knowledge Transfer projects will both receive support.
The main objective of the Targeted Career Promotion project is to raise awareness of career and employment opportunities in the plastics processing industry for unemployed or under-employed persons. Under the Employee Retention/Turnover and Knowledge Transfer project, a report focusing on best practices regarding worker retention/turnover and knowledge transfer issues will be developed.
"The Human Resources Partnerships program has recognized that this industry is critical to Canada’s continued economic growth, but it has also recognized its limitations in being able to come to grips with its human resource issues," says Charles Brimley, executive director of CPSC. "Through HRP, the Government of Canada has helped the CPSC in focusing its work on supplying its stakeholders with centralized best practice information."
