High River Chamber of Commerce members heard about best practices when it comes to hiring and keeping employees at a breakfast meeting Thursday February 16.

Speaker, Nicole Jelly, the Executive Director of "Talent Pool" says she has once piece of advice for local employers looking for the best employees.

"Come to Calgary. Come and talk to organizations in Calgary that have access directly to these pools. Have a presence. Don't assume that people won't commute. Don't assume that people won't relocate."

She says High River has much to offer, from a lifestyle point of view and that potential employees could be swayed by that along with truly believing in the vision and goals of the company.

Jolly also says some of the keys to retaining quality employees is putting their transferable skills to work for them to help build success.

She says High River has the same potential to become a Canmore, but they need to increase their presence in the minds of Calgarians.
