Any advice for HRBPs supporting organizations based in Canada?

Hello!  I'm two weeks into an HR Business Partner position with a Canadian based retailer, supporting all U.S. locations.  for about 1.5 years the U.S. locations have been supported by the home office team.  So, now that I'm in the role, I'm working on a strategy to support and am just wondering if anyone in the community has had a similar experience and has any advice to offer. 

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi - We partnered with a company called Pivotal for payroll and HR support for our employees in Ontario.  They've been  a great resource - we have a dedicated HR and payroll person - they process our payroll and tax forms.  We also have employees in Quebec and while that is not there area of expertise, they have been able to connect to resources to assist us there too.  We also partnered with an Ontario safety professional with Workplace Safety & Prevention Services - their services are FREE.   They've helped us develop safety policies and procedures for our Ontario operations.  I'm happy to share the contact information for both if you're interested, just let me know.
