Based on a pilot project funded by the Local Employment Planning Council, and overseen by South Essex Community Council, we will share lessons learned and best practices developed by a pre-hiring soft skills training initiative. The program was supported by employers with job sampling, in the agri-business sector in small town Ontario. Pre- and post-testing helped to validate results.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand challenges and successes in developing and running the program
  • Create awareness of research structure for the pilot program
  • Identify best practices for employee recruitment and retention
