196 Attendees strong with 2 expert speakers was the scene at HRAI’s 3rd webinar installment on COVID and the HVAC Industry.

Many of you have been asking questions about tackling HR issues in your workplace and how the federal programs will be rolled out to support small and medium businesses and their employees.

We were pleased to have 2 expert speakers for this 90-minute presentation.  Feedback was very positive for both Francesco Sorbara, Member of Parliament for Vaughan—Woodbridge (Ontario) and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Revenue, and HR specialist, Mike Salveta of Pivotal Solutions.

Mr. Sorbara has been very involved in the federal design and roll-out of programs like the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and the Canada Emergency Response Benefit.  Mr. Sorbara was kind enough to answer some of your questions on the call.  And, he has been very gracious to offer a complete summary of answers to all the questions asked at the webinar pertaining to the federal program.  HRAI will be sharing this information soon with all who registered for the event and the entire membership.

HR professional, Mike Salveta, of Pivotal Solutions, a company that HRAI has been working with for the past 5 years, helped attendees to navigate some of the trickier HR issues emerging during this unprecedented time.  Mr. Salveta’s presentation and recording can be found here!

As an added bonus, Pivotal Solutions has also been gracious enough to offer the following:  For the month of April, HRAI has made arrangements to have free access to get your HR questions answered by its HR partner.  If the question is straightforward you will receive email guidance. If more complicated, a phone call.  Send your question and contact information to hrnews@pivotalsolutions.com
