ETHOS Career Management Group has launched the Inclusive Employers Hiring HUB (The HUB), a free resource for Vancouver Island employers to help with hiring, employee retention, and to support staff with disabilities.
The HUB provides training and resources to get you and your staff certified as an Inclusive Employer. Training is quick, easy, and at your own pace – only 4 short online sessions that you can access at your own convenience. Visit the Events Calendar to register for upcoming info sessions on the benefits of an inclusive workforce and what to expect from the training.
“I believe signing up for the certification could be a HUGE benefit to our local businesses, in terms of hiring AND retention,” said Johnna Puusa, Labour Market Information Specialist at WorkBC. “There are 645,000 Canadians with disabilities who are currently unemployed, and tapping into that labour pool may be just the answer you’re looking for!”
Participating in the HUB is free and, in addition to the training, includes access to a database of potential candidates to meet your hiring needs. By hiring inclusively, you will tap into a resource of qualified employees, develop a stronger and more innovative team, and truly reflect the community you serve.
