February’s Leadership Tip: Be aware of the local resources that are available to you.
Being aware of the resources available to you, as it may play to your advantage. From Employment Service’s Job Board to the Canada-Ontario Job Grant, there are programs and services available to help leverage your business.
For example, the Business Development arm of St. Lawrence College provides customized professional development training to local businesses, individual community residents, and government employees. Business Development has complemented St. Lawrence College’s academic mission and has positioned itself as the regional leader in human capital development. Investment in life-long learning while connecting job seekers and employers provides the local workforce with the necessary skill sets to foster economic development and social prosperity.
The six divisions of Business Development include:
• Corporate Learning & Performance Improvement (CLPI)
• Community Youth Employment
• Employment Service’s
• Customized skills based workforce learning
• Career and Placement Service
• SLCWorks (Entrepreneurial Support Services)
