About Rapid Results

Rapid Results is a new initiative developed by Food Processing Skills Canada to provide the Canadian food and beverage manufacturing industry with real time data and information to assist with evidence-based business decisions and workforce development.

This initiative is part of a new program — Achieving Our Workforce Destination: Qualified People, Successful Careers & Competitive Business. Food Processing Skills Canada and partners developed this program to build on the success of Raising the Standards and Professionalizing the Food and Beverage Industry with real and practical resources that respond to today’s challenges.

Food Processing Skills Canada is recruiting hundreds of individuals from start-up companies, small to medium-sized enterprises, and multinational corporations located across Canada. Representation on the panel will be regional and sectoral. Panelists should be a senior member of their company, such as an owner or hold a management position and have a strong knowledge of HR and industry issues including recruitment, hiring, training and operations.
