MARKHAM, ON, Feb. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Ceridian Canada Ltd., a leading human
capital management solutions provider, today officially launched a new
online service that gives small business owners all the tools necessary
to pay and manage their people in one convenient location.
Ceridian for Small Business www.ceridiansmallbusiness.ca provides employee-related solutions, which will result in up to a 9%
reduction in labour costs for organizations with less than 50
Ceridian Canada President Dave MacKay said, "Small businesses are the
backbone of our economy, but they are unnecessarily burdened when it
comes to managing people in a fast paced environment. Too many
services, with unrealistic pricing, distributed across too many
providers has meant that small business owners have been unable to
identify and draw upon the resources they need. With Ceridian for Small
Business, we want to level the playing field and support their growth
by putting all the latest high-quality tools at their fingertips at the
prices they can afford."
Ceridian for Small Business provides a single-source provision of

arrange the monthly service plan that best suits their needs. Upon

when the need arises on matters such as employment law advice,
recruiting, background checking and training.
Nick Thomson, Ceridian Canada's Vice President of Corporate Development

comes to getting the most out of your people in any size of business,
you need to go beyond simply paying people. By visiting our site,
customers can not only source the combination of solutions they need to
manage their team day-to-day, but also respond professionally to those
unexpected people problems."
