Alberta Works Week: Employer Forum, May 2nd

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

We would like to extend an invitation to all of our employer partners and interested parties to a special event during the first annual Alberta Works Week.

The focus of Alberta Works Week is to increase public awareness of labour needs and employment resources for all Albertans. An important consideration is the engagement of under-represented groups in the labour market and how they contribute to Alberta’s Workforce.  A triathlon of employment events is being held in Calgary assisting mature workers, persons with disabilities and persons with developmental disabilities successfully find and secure jobs.

Wrapping up Calgary’s triathlon will be the Sprint to the Finish Line – Hiring Untapped Talent employer forum.  We know how important it is to find skilled, suitable and responsible employees.  This forum for employers will focus on talent pools found among persons with disabilities and mature workers.  Keynote speakers, opportunities to share stories about challenges and successes, and networking with fellow employers will make for a fast-paced and interesting event.

If you would like to attend, please see below for event details, including registration instructions.

Time:  8:30 a.m. to 12 Noon
