How does Employment Placement help?

We will meet with you to tell you about our services. Work with you to define your specific job requirements, such as skills, abilities, training needs. It could be in office administration, sales and service, manufacturing or general trades and labour.

We can go to work for you in four different ways:

  1. Hiring Assistance, Screening and Matching
    We will assess, prescreen and refer candidates that meet your requirements. People with real potential to become permanent employees. We will pay for any formal accredited assessments. You interview them and make your choice. The final decision is always yours. You pay the going wage.
  2. Human Resources Follow-up Services We follow up with support for your new employees and to ensure the placement meets your needs. We also assist with retention strategies.
  3. Funding Available for Employers
    Your new employees may need a little extra supervision or training. Employers may be eligible for funding for up to six months to help offset these costs or to purchase job-related training.
  4. WSIB/Accident Insurance Coverage
    We can cover the costs of Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) coverage during the training period. Any claim will not affect your company's WSIB experience rating or premiums.
