Encouraging promising employees

About a month ago in our September 19, 2023 Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest, I suggested that this is a great time of year to involve promising employees in your business by taking them to the upcoming distributor shows or industry Conferences. There is just a small cost to take your young employees to the immersive and often very enjoyable experience of attending the distributor shows. These are full of interesting products and information. More importantly, this is a great way to show that you are investing in them and in their future in your business. 

Last week I was speaking to Boating Ontario Association CEO Rick Layzell who shared that their upcoming conference at Deerhurst Resort is booking up fast and is on its way to record-breaking attendance. This will be a fast-paced and informative event that could make a really positive impression on a young person, or really, any person who is new to the industry.

I’m sure that the same is true for the Boating BC Conference as well. I hope you will take the opportunity to share this sort of experience with your people.

Also, in this edition of Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest, there is a reminder that any business who wants to find new ways to attract and retain new employees should consider the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice program. There is still time to get involved for this year and it is unlike any other program in the industry. Several companies in our industry have enjoyed solid success with this methodology.

Check out the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice story (below) to learn more about this. It could start your business on a new tack to attracting long-term and motivated employees.
