CHARLOTTETOWN – Two of the Prince Edward Island’s leading economic associations are teaming up for a project.

The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce are working together to translate the P.E.I. Human Resources Toolkit website into French.

The Charlottetown chamber had originally set up the www.peihrtoolkit.ca site a couple of years ago with assistance from SkillsPEI through the Canada-P.E.I. Labour Market Development Agreement.

“Keeping up with the changing workplace environment can be challenging for small businesses,” said Keith O’Neill, president of the Charlottetown chamber.

“The P.E.I. HR Toolkit provides links and resources to help business people understand and stay on top of current employment trends and legislation.”

 “The Acadian Chamber realized that this site contained many valuable human resources tools that could be of great use to all business people on the Island, but we felt that it could have an even greater impact if it was bilingual,” added Jeannette Arsenault, spokeswoman for the French chamber.  

“We therefore discussed the idea of getting the site translated with our friends and partners at the Charlottetown Chamber. They readily agreed that this would be a great joint initiative that would fall perfectly within the scope of the collaboration agreement we signed several years ago.”

The site is divided into several sections: Basics of HR, legislation, recruitment & selection, retention, diverse workplace, compensation & benefits and employer support. Each of those is comprised of several subsections full of handy details for those requiring information about human resources related issues.

 The site allows visitors to download the entire toolkit in a zip file or to access each element individually. Some of these elements include examples of job offers, interview guides, interview rating forms, acceptance and rejection letters, and direct deposit forms.

Another section provides updated news about human resource issues while another area provides links to a variety of other supports. While it is geared specifically to P.E.I. businesses, namely in regards to provincial legislation, many other elements of the toolkit could be of use to businesses in other provinces.

The newly launched French site is now accessible at www.peihrtoolkit.ca/fr/
