Recap: Webinar: Retain and Gain: Using Career Management to Fuel Growth in the New World of Work

We hope you'll review the webinar to find out how small and medium businesses can benefit from career management tools and what large enterprises can learn from small business owners. You will learn about a new free resource to help chamber members resolve critical employee challenges. How can businesses of all sizes turn to career management to make sense of today’s ever-changing world of work and the future of work?

In partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) published Retain and Gain: Career Management for Small Business Playbook features a practical approach to addressing key workforce trends. It provides simple, low-cost career management activities that you can implement right now (some in only 10 minutes a day) to attract, engage and retain the best people.

Hear from Playbook author and workforce expert Lisa Taylor on:

  • Who “owns” a career? Is it the company? Is it the individual? And what does career ownership mean?
  • How can you retain staff as the freelance economy disrupts traditional employment?
  • If the largest disruption impacting businesses today is human, not technical, how can managers with little HR training, few resources, and never enough time, use career management techniques to grow their businesses and their people?
  • Connections between career management and the biggest barriers to business competitiveness (e.g., ability to scale, productivity, innovation)
  • Special considerations when employing new graduates and mature workers 50+, or running a family enterprise


For most small and medium enterprises, with upwards of 70% of operating budgets spent on people, it’s smart business to make the most from this investment. Join this webinar to find out how career management will develop the skills and motivation of your employees and have those employees contribute more to fuel your organization. 

Lisa Taylor is founder and President of Challenge Factory and the Centre for Career Innovation. Her career and workforce perspectives have been featured in media outlets across North America including the Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, CBC and The Globe and Mail. Taylor regularly speaks on the Future of Work, the intergenerational workforce and the changing nature of careers in today’s economy.
