Tools for Business Leaders Looking to Attract and Retain Talent
If you are an employer who wants to attract and retain talent – the Burnaby Board of Trade is partnering with the Presidents Group to help.
The Presidents Group is a network of small and large BC business leaders who have found that hiring people with disabilities is a great way to attract and retain talent during a labour shortage.
The Presidents Group knows that while many employers understand the business value of hiring a diverse workforce, it’s hard to find the right information and resources to help. What has been missing is up-to-date, practical advice – created by employers for employers – about how to effectively recruit, hire and retain a diverse employee base. In response to this need, they launched accessibleemployers.ca. Whether you’re a small business owner, a non-profit organization, or a large employer, this site is for you.
With close to one million job openings expected in BC by 2025*, and 334,000 British Columbians aged 15 to 64 with a disability**, people with disabilities represent an important employee talent pool that is largely untapped.
