One in three Canadian companies faces a skilled labour shortage, according to a 2012 study by CIBC World Markets. With this and a strong business case in mind, Viable works with employers, service providers and people with disabilities to help them achieve their workforce goals.
One way to mitigate the labour shortage is to expand your perspective to untapped talent pools, such as people with disabilities. How big is that pool? According to the latest figures, it's 4.4 million Canadians. And that's only the number who are willing to disclose a disability.
Viable's commitment is to create lasting connections between employers, service providers and employees, and to help employers diversify their hiring practices. Best of all, our services are provided at no cost to employers. To receive Viable information and event announcements please sign up.
