Employer Initiatives

No one knows the current and future skill requirements of its workforce better than the employer.

Business Services for Employers

The Peninsula Council for Workforce Development facilitates programs that assist new and existing businesses in accessing qualified workers and jobseekers and bolstering their earnings. We can assist companies by connecting them with qualified applicants, reducing their cost per hire, providing productive/skilled employees and reducing unwanted turnover.

Employer Advisory Groups

With the help of industry representatives, the Council identifies unmet needs within key industry clusters.  Our Employer Advisory Groups are composed of representatives from the same or similar industries for the purpose of identifying and discussing industry and workforce needs and issues. Areas of discussion may include:

  • Professional development and training opportunities
  • Skill requirements for specific jobs or career pathways
  • Training requirements for emerging, incumbent and/or expanding workforces
  • Challenges pertaining to employee attraction and retention
