Building a Resilient & Vibrant Workforce
Tourism HR Canada collaborated with the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) to produce a special set of five webinars: Building a Resilient and Vibrant Workforce.

A Blended Workforce
With the tourism sector facing a serious staffing shortfall, employers need to get creative – and smarter – in how we build and sustain our workforce. Learning to get by with a smaller and nimbler staff is not just necessary – it’s potentially transformative. We have the opportunity to rethink our recruitment strategies, restructure how our teams work together, and re-imagine the products that we offer.
