    Peel Halton Workforce Development Group
    February 24, 2021
    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on all our lives, but the strategies that employers used in response to the first lockdown and its aftermath varied greatly by industry and by the size of the firm. The results of the 2020 Employer Survey carried out by PHWDG reveal these differences, in terms of who was most likely to have employees work from home, how the composition of the workforce is changing, what emerging expectations employers have of job candidates and how businesses are adapting through increased reliance on technology. While the COVID pandemic affected all of us and had an extraordinary impact on our economy, individual businesses and employment, the fall-out was experienced in diverse ways and to varying degrees. Different establishments had varying proportions of essential workers as well as varying capacities to shift to remote work or delivering their products and services on-line. As a result, the range of coping strategies open to an employer varied by the size of their operation and by their industry. And while employers pivoted to on-line platforms or reliance on more employees working from home in response to the pandemic, some of these adaptations will likely continue even after this crisis has passed. These are some of the findings from the 10th annual survey of employers carried out by the Peel Halton Workforce Development Group. Read more

    In today’s business climate of corporate transparency and accountability, an organization’s officers and directors face a myriad of employment-related exposures. In the past few years, we’ve experienced an unprecedented number of corporate scandals and have seen directors and officers increasingly held accountable for their actions. While the trend of corporate accountability may seem to be applicable only to large corporations, privately held companies, including non-profits, are not exempt from litigation arising out of the management decisions of their boards. Regardless of your company’s size, the legal costs associated with a lawsuit can be crippling. If your company does not insure this risk, qualified directors and officers may be hesitant to join your team for fear of personal liability in the event of an error. Read more
