They knew it was going to be tough, setting up a new human resources management system, but because nobody had ever done it before they didn’t know just how tough.

This was a new experience for the HR department at Algonquin Automotive and looking back now, they underestimated just how much work it would be.

On top of that, once they found themselves in the middle of the implementation, over their heads in work, with unattainable deadlines approaching, little could be done to get the project back on track because there wasn’t anybody to take charge and force it back on.
