About Nova Scotia Works & the HR Toolkit

Employers in Nova Scotia are facing increasing recruitment and retention challenges. Demographic trends are having major impacts on the labour market. As fewer and fewer young people enter the workforce and the number of retirees increases, employers find themselves in even greater competition for a shrinking pool of available workers.

Being able to find and keep the right workers, motivate them, and develop their skills is critical for attracting, hiring and retaining workers. The NS Works Human Resources Toolkit (the HR Toolkit) was designed to provide information and resources to help employers achieve these goals and compete in today's market place.

Nova Scotia Works has experts on hand throughout the Province to help you find, hire, develop and keep the talent you need. Contact an Employer Engagement Specialist in a Nova Scotia Works Employment Services Centre near you to learn more about the HR Toolkit and other Provincial initiatives to support worker recruitment, development and retention in Nova Scotia.
