Over the past several years, the EmployerOne Survey found that the number one way that employers recruit is by word of mouth. This, combined with input during community consultations, identified a number of focus ideas that would assist with local Business/Job Seeker attraction, connection and retention opportunities.
For 2022-23, CFWD will focus on educating employers on the better use of digital technology to promote their businesses and the job opportunities within them. This will involve the following activities:
Develop and deliver a series of workshops for employers that will inform employers about:
- On-line job posting (places, methods and thinking outside the box)
- Website development best practices
- Sharing corporate culture
These workshops will take place as panel presentations or virtual webinars in Fall 2022 or early 2023. Information for each workshop will be added below as they are developed and finalized.
