Are you struggling to find reliable employees? With the changing job market, the Employability Network is here to help you explore our local untapped workforce, increase employee retention and create a more inclusive workplace. Fill your HR needs by learning more about criminal backgrounds. It is estimated that about 1 in 10 Canadians, about 10% of the population, have a criminal record.
On Thursday February 28th join us for breakfast at 7:30am at the Cornwall Civic Complex. You will also have the opportunity to ask our panel any questions or concerns your organization may have. A line up of guest speakers will give you a local, global and legal perspective on hiring candidates with criminal backgrounds. We want to thank Sandra Marleau from Olymel, Geoff Clarke from the City of Cornwall and Robert Coulombe from Clinique Juridique Roy McMurtry Legal Clinic SDG for sharing their expertise and experiences with us.
“In our day and age, a focus must be the bottom line to be profitable, however we also need to pay attention to the means to get there. X+Y does not always equal Z. Experience is always on the top of the list for most jobs. Why not put this experience to work and increase the bottom line” Jason Jesmer, Drake International
“We provide employment services to clients with criminal records and we’ve observed that many employers, who are open to hiring these individuals, have had success in keeping these individuals long term.” Carine MacMillan, Employment Consultant – Job Zone d’empoi.
