Business Resource Networks

Let's talk about retention

The Business Resource Network (BRN) is a business strategy comprised of local companies that aim to increase job retention and job productivity among their staff. By leveraging resources, companies are ensuring their employees’ personal needs are met, and therefore, improving workplace engagement.
