Workforce Development

The Workforce Development Program assists companies that require a comprehensive approach to human resource management through needs assessment, analysis and training support. The program provides human resource planning assistance and funding support for training development and delivery.

Workforce development consultants offer value-added service by linking companies with a range of services, programs and supports available from government and other organizations.

After an initial assessment, the Workforce Development Team works with each company to develop a customized human resource and staff development strategy. The strategy may include several of the following areas of focus:

  • human resource planning
  • recruiting and selection strategies
  • human resource foundations
  • training and staff development funding
  • job analysis
  • succession planning

A workforce development consultant then brings together various partners who deliver supports and services that can assist companies in meeting their needs. These partners may include other government departments/agencies, third-party service providers and external consultants.
