Event description
What Works is a community summit to create solutions to the employment challenges in Williams Lake.

About this Event

Employers are struggling to find and keep good employees. Many job seekers are struggling to find and maintain employment.

Employers want and need to recruit and retain employees and current and prospective employees want to find employment that meets their needs. Jobs are there, people are looking for (or hoping for) work, but too often the two are not connecting. This event will bring together employers and community services to focus on finding solutions.

Inspired by keynote speaker Kristi Fairholm Mader, who will share creative solutions to employment challenges, and by a local panel sharing success stories, we will tackle the following questions with a goal of designing tangible local solutions for implementation:

• How can we help employers better understand the capabilities, aspirations and challenges of employees so they can attract and keep them as employees?

• How can we help employees better understand the requirements of the employer, the challenges they (employee) may have in meeting those requirements, so they can get and keep that job?

Sponsored by Thrive, a project of the Social Planning Council and Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy, in partnership with the Regional Education Council.

Financial support for this event is provided by the Employment Program funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of BC.
