We’re partnering with YMCA of Niagara’s Employment & Immigration Services on Employer LINK, a project that aims to connect local employers with newcomer talent in new ways and co-create and test better, more equitable employment outcomes. Through the project, a coaching service will be developed to match employers (business owners, HR personnel within organizations, leaders/managers who hire employees) with newcomers who are seeking jobs as well as support with employee hiring and retention, on a one-on-one basis.
Please share your thoughts and experiences to inform the design of the service and project, via our online engagement tool. It takes 5-10 minutes, on average, to complete and we appreciate all insights– whether you have recruited newcomers and immigrants before, are newly curious about diversifying the workforce, or are somewhere in between.
If you’re hiring (or planning to hire in the next 3-6 months) and want to learn more about how to get connected to newcomer jobseekers and employer coaches – please contact us at [email protected]
We are collecting data to better understand who is looking for work and what kind of opportunities jobseekers are searching for. This data is completely anonymous and non-personally identifiable.
