ATB Business Beat:

Alberta entrepreneurs on talent

July 2018

‭As Alberta nears the two-year mark since the end of the recession, many small- and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) are ‭adjusting to an evolving and diversifying economy. As Alberta adjusts to this new economic normal, our survey reveals ‭declining optimism, as compared to last quarter. Still, Albertan SMEs are nothing if not resilient. With patience, agility ‭and a lot of hard work, entrepreneurs are becoming the changemakers we need to transform the face of business and ‭forge a new path forward.

Regardless of the big economic picture, SMEs need the right people to drive growth. In this issue, we take an ‭in-depth look at their talent strategies.
