Employer-Employment Expert Summit Registration Open!

03 May 2019 3:26 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Registration is Open for the ASPECT Summit! It's our first time trying to bring employers and employment experts (that's you, employment service providers) together and it's also a first for BC. As you know, the first time is always a bit scary.  

Here's what to expect:

Day One - Tuesday, June 4, 2019, from noon to 5:00pm
Employment Service Providers

Starting at lunchtime, the afternoon will be filled a luncheon with special guest, Minister of Social Development & Poverty Reduction Hon. Shane Simspon as the keynote (TBC), followed by workshops on Employer Engagement Strategies, Career Development Professional Competence Consultations, and Marketing/Communications - Strategies for Reaching Your Targets. Then we'll meet at a plenary session to discuss post-employment supports and marketing outside of the current contracts. Within the afternoon there will be opportunities to network with colleagues and discuss innovative ideas.

Day Two - Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 8:30am to 6:30pm
Employers & Service Providers Together

This day will start bright and early with breakfast and a keynote speaker (TBD) and 6 panels.  After lunch, we will have 3 more panels, another plenary keynote, followed by a networking reception.

 If you have a speciality in one or more of these topics, please let me know. Each panel will have a facilitator, a service provider, an employer, and sometimes a client.
  • Using Big Data to Meet Labour Market Needs
  • Ingenious Hiring: What big business is doing?
  • Trends in Staff Attraction and Retention
  • Future Skills Centre - Projects & Opportunities
  • Best Ways to Recruit Seasonal & Temporary Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Youth & Millennial Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Immigrant Workers
  • Business Case for Hiring Indigenous Workers
  • Business Case for Inclusive Hires: President’s Group
As I write this, more information is being updated as workshop presenters and panelists are being confirmed. It's the first time that we have ever presented a gathering that focuses on employer needs and although I'm excited at the prospect, it's also a little scary. I'll be leaning on our ASPECT members and stakeholders to make this dream a reality. Register now and book your hotel room before May 10 to take advantage of the Summit rate discounts.
