Project Overview

The challenge was to design written contracts for carpenters for a small, but growing home construction company in British Columbia. Previously the carpenters worked on the basis of verbal agreements. An additional challenge was the company’s lack of a human resources expertise.

    “For my capstone project, I wanted to collaborate with a trades-related client since they often do not have an HR professional on staff.  I loved the experience, the client was amazing and the professor helped guide the process.”
