Entrepreneur Nation: Our first piece of independent research, in collaboration with PROFIT Magazine.

human resourcesThis past fall, PROFIT Magazine, in conjunction with the Retail Council of Canada, surveyed more than 1,000 small and mid-sized Canadian companies, including 225 retail operators. The goal was to find out how business owners feel about their industry and the economy at large. Business owners were also asked about the challenges they face and their strategies and tactics in key areas such as sales and marketing, human resources and succession planning.
