In his tenth year as a volunteer member of the International Brotherhood of Migratory Peddlers (IBMP), Al Parsons of Bancroft Western Sales recently co-chaired the PacWest 2012 Pulp and Paper Technical Conference in Jasper, AB.
The theme of the PacWest Conference in 2012 was “Sustainability Through People & Technology” with the central focus being the looming human resources problem in the Pulp and Paper industry.
The conference brought together leading pulp and paper company managers, human resource experts and keynote speaker, John Wright, a Sr. VP at Ipsos-Reid. The consensus among them is that a skilled labor shortage in Canada is on the horizon and the pulp and paper industry is only one of many sectors that will have to compete to attract and retain the next generation of skilled workers.
