A review of the companies that have hired and laid off employees during August 2016.
1. Olymel gives on the one hand, and takes on the other. This past month, the pork producer created 350 and 200 jobs at its plants in Yamachiche and Saint-Esprit respectively, all while cutting 340 jobs in Saint-Hyacinthe.
2. Web.com, the US provider of online marketing services, is expanding its operations in Nova Scotia. While it was already established in Yarmouth and Halifax, it will open an operations center in New Glasgow, creating 330 new jobs within 3 years.
