The Scotiabank Women Initiative

Common Human Resource Mistakes & Best Practices in Agriculture − CFIB


The Scotiabank Women Initiative proudly sponsors this podcast event, brought to you by our partners at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). The objective is to help women entrepreneurs in the agriculture industry to be successful, leading businesses in Canada.

In Part 1 above, we address an important challenge for most businesses, regardless of sector or industry: effectively managing human capital. Once you have a better understanding of HR best practices, you can create a better working environment for you and your employees, reduce stress for everyone and ultimately, improve the profitability of the business.

When it comes to human resources, there are key areas discussed that can help you plant the seeds for success:

  • Standard hiring practices
  • Proper classification of employees
  • Employee contracts
  • Understanding of government compliance
  • Managing temporary foreign workers
  • Performance and discipline
  • Government grants, subsidies and tax credits and more.
