Saskatchewan’s economy is growing and that means there are more jobs available than ever before. Unfortunately, the number of workers is not growing at the same rate so many jobs go unfilled and businesses cannot grow to their full potential.
By improving the productivity of people and businesses however, this loss of potential can be greatly reduced. Attending a Productivity 101 workshop is your first step in creating a more productive and profitable business or organization.
By attending this workshop you will learn the basics of what productivity is and how it is applicable to your business. Some of the things that you will learn include productivity basics; the value of productivity improvement to your own organization; what tools, programs, and services are available to your businesses or organization; how to start your journey of productivity improvement; and the three pillars of productivity.

The workshop will be delivered by Mr. Sebastian Panciuk, one of Productivity Alberta’s productivity experts, who will be in Saskatchewan to facilitate this first series of Productivity 101 workshops throughout the province. The workshop is approximately three hours long, with adequate time allowed for questions during and after the workshop.
The workshops will be held in Regina June 17, Saskatoon June 18, North Battleford June 19, Prince Albert June 20 and Humboldt June 21. For more particulars or to register, click here.
