  • What is a Grant Strategy?
  • Which Grants Align with your HR Role?
  • How to be Successful in Applying for Grants?

1.  Recruitment challenges for general labour.  What is everyone doing to get out of the box on this one?   Is anyone doing anything unique that they would be willing to share?  Should the BCFPA host a career fair?

2. Modified duty and managing claims.  How do you manage the duty to accommodate? Looking for ideas!  Processors are experiencing more and more requests for accommodation due to both non-occupational and occupational injuries/illnesses.  Job rotations are being affected by this as others have to pick up the duties.  Do you handle non-occ and occ injury/illnesses the same or different?  What are the thresholds for the frustration that employers are using?
