We’re partnering with YMCA of Niagara’s Employment & Immigrant Services on Employer LINK (Learning, Information and Networked Knowledge), to connect local employers with newcomer talent in new ways and lead better, more equitable employment outcomes. Throughout this 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. Employer LINK will also support employee hiring and retention; on a one-on-one basis.
Please share your thoughts and experiences 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, or are newly curious about diversifying the workforce.
If you’re hiring or planning to hire and want to learn more about how to find newcomer jobseekers and employer coaches – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
