Yes, we are facing a labour shortage in Alberta. As the economy improves and corporations invest in growth, the search is on for top talent to fill positions at all skill levels and to retain top talent in the workplace. One of the most effective strategies to becoming known as an employer of choice is to tap into the enormous talent pool of people with disabilities.
The need to identify specific barriers to employment and assist clients to develop job readiness skills and job search strategies is imperative. This growing need for qualified workers creates a demand for expanded training and apprenticeship opportunities. Employers focus on hiring effectively and efficiently when analyzing their workforce needs as well as maintaining knowledge capital through retention.
With new hires, we act as a liaison between the client and the potential employer. We assess skill sets and interests of our clients and help provide employers with a skilled and diverse workforce. In all cases, we look for the right person for the right job. With your current staff, we help you with retention strategies and accommodations to support your employees.
We are a valuable partner for employers to help diversify your workforce and to access and retain skilled candidates for your ongoing needs. We focus on an individual’s ability within their disability and can help employers, recruiters and the human resources team find the best fit in this untapped pool of qualified workers.
