Toronto Pearson Airport delays: Are you prepared for this people management nightmare?
Hundreds of flights cancelled, thousands of passengers stranded, long lineups and delays at screening and customs – industry leaders warn these disruptions at the Toronto Pearson Airport could last all summer. It’s a people management nightmare.
And your staff could be caught up in this chaos for months to come. They could be stuck abroad and miss work, or even have to change or cancel their annual vacation at the last minute.
So, you have two options. You can either spend your summer scrambling to find staff to cover while also recalculating mountains of mismatched vacation...
Or you can let BrightHR do the hard work for you.
