Challenges In Innovation:
Recruitment and Retention

Recruitment and retention of talent is quickly emerging as a major priority in the Public Sector. The presentation describes how Industry Canada is adopting innovative approaches to address this issue. Three specific human resources initiatives are described :

  • A "Bridging Program" designed to grow talent from within,
  • An Intranet-based "HR Development Toolkit" to facilitate employee development, and
  • A "Career Advisory Panel" initiative to support the longer-term career aspirations of senior professionals.

The presentation focuses on the challenge of adopting creative solutions to human resource issues and what has been learned in this respect.
