Adapt quickly to change and foster supportive work environments

Small Business Magazine

If the past 22 months have taught us one thing, it’s that strength is not reflected by the size of a business, but rather by the resilience – and the heart – of the people behind it.

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continued to keep our finger on the pulse of Canada’s small business – the keystone of our economy. With recent ADP Workplace Insights survey findings showing that 79% of small businesses who reduced their workforce during the pandemic have re-hired employees, it looks like 2022 is going to be the “Year of the Employee”.

We’ve also seen a shift in the priorities of Canadian workers, with the pandemic leading many to re-evaluate what is truly important to them and their families – a healthy work-life balance, closer workplace relationships, and flexible schedules.

With the ability to quickly adapt to change and foster supportive work environments that promote personal relationships with both colleagues and business leaders, there’s been no better place in time than now, for the Canadian small business to meet the needs of this re-inspired labor force.

On behalf of ADP Canada, I’d like to thank Canada’s SME community for their ongoing efforts in what has been an incredibly difficult time. Thank you for your creativity, resilience, and inspiring commitment to all Canadians.

Canadian small business is bouncing back. And with this resurgence comes a unique opportunity for you to shape the future of work, and your community.

With gratitude, Ed.
