Partners In The Community
Need to Find a Worker Right Now?
A number of organizations provide placement and financial supports to help specific groups of individuals find and keep meaningful employment. They may have workers who are job-ready and anxious to work for you.
Community groups have well-developed resources and networks. Developing relationships with them gives you access to these. A community group such as ISANS (Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia) knows how to help you find and talk to potential workers who come from many backgrounds – ones that you may overlook on your own.
What Can Community Groups Do For You?
- Pre-screen people who want to apply to work at your company.
- Support employees who need help around language or accessibility.
- Get your job ads to the right people.
- Give you a list of publications or media sources that will be useful as you become more diverse.
- Help you learn how to create an unbiased process for recruiting employees.
- Find someone from a community group to sit on your panels for job interviews.
