Large and Small Organizations
Over the years Huntly has taken the Human Resources
concepts developed for large sophisticated organizations and refined
and simplified them for dynamic small organizations or independent
divisions. This skill is very valuable to large organizations that
acquire new assets or strategic partners, as well as the
entrepreneur wanting to maintain a sharp competitive edge.
Huntly has worked at locations (head offices, plants
& branches) ranging in size from 20 to 4,000 employees and has
held Human Resources or Labour Relations responsibilities for units
ranging anywhere in size from 12 to 1,400 employees.
While Corporate Personnel Manager for Consumers
Packaging and as Director of Human Resources for Rolland's Paper
Merchants (now know as Cascade Resources), Huntly tailored large
corporate Human Resources polices for the small start-ups and
independent, entrepreneurial branches ranging in size from 12 to 120
At a small French-language school board
and a small French-language Ontario Community College of applied arts and technology he
helped adapt policies and procedures originally designed for large
Across Canada and the U.S.
Huntly has worked extensively in Ontario and Quebec as
well as other provinces and the United States. When the corporate
Human Resources function was created at Consumers Packaging in 1980
Huntly spent several years writing, implementing and refining Human
Resources Policies for both the Canadian and U.S. operations. He
appreciates the legal and cultural differences in managing and
compensating employees in both countries.
The understanding gained by this experience is
particularly helpful to Americans learning to manage the unique
legal and Human Resources aspects of their Canadian operations.
