Success story

John Howard Society Employment Service

A local logistics employer uses JHS Employment Services to support their operation in many ways. They have accessed a variety of free programs and staff support to help sustain and grow their business.

This employer has been able to save time and money using JHS Employment Services for recruiting new staff, on site job fairs, and access to wage subsidies that offset the cost of training new hires. On behalf of this company, our Job Developers have posted job openings and screened candidates. We have presented many hiring options and supported the training of staff during onboarding.

This local business has now established an ongoing hiring process with JHS Employment Services that allows them to be consistent in their hiring processes. It also saves them the costs associated with HR functions and staff time.

In order to provide qualified candidates, JHS Employment Services can provide free programs and services to help them be job ready. Costs can be covered for training in Health and Safety, proper work attire, and other job-ready skills. Transportation costs for the first few weeks of employment can also be covered, reducing the number of barriers for new hires in the first few weeks of employment. This employer says that these factors play a huge role in ensuring that new hires are prepared and ready for work with their company.
