A Virtual Community Roundtable on Employer Engagement from CERIC and ASPECT
You are invited to contribute your voice to a live virtual Community Roundtable with your career development colleagues across British Columbia based on CERIC’s National Business Survey.
CERIC surveyed 500 employers – the majority small and medium-sized businesses – to examine the state of Career Development in the Canadian Workplace. An executive summary as well as detailed findings can be found at www.ceric.ca/nbs2021. You can also watch the recordings of a two-part webinar series where we explored the survey results. Canada’s employers have told us about their challenges with recruitment and retention, about skills and talent gaps in the labour market and about the kinds of career management supports they provide for employees. Career development leaders have responded with how they would build a bridge to address common workforce needs.
And now it’s your turn. You’re the experts on the ground. Career service professionals from all sectors – non-profit agencies, government agencies, post-secondary education, government, corporate, private practice – engage regularly with employers. To close the circle, we want your perspective:
Importantly, you will go beyond just talking. Your insights will help to create resources that you can use for employer engagement and to champion the role of career development in the Canadian workplace.
Is this event right for you? This is a participatory, cameras-on event. You’ll spend most of your time in small Zoom video-chat groups actively involved in dynamic discussions with your peers.
These interactive roundtables will be limited to 100 spots to ensure the opportunity for everyone to participate. They will include both large and small group facilitated discussions. A Google doc will be used to collect your thoughts and transformed afterwards into shareable resources. A dedicated Slack channel will also be open to you immediately following the event to allow you to connect with fellow participants and post additional reflections.
Reserve your spot now.
