Tune in to this webinar to learn why recruiting aspiring workers makes good business sense.
The term Aspiring Workforce describes those people who, due to mental illness, have been unable to enter the workforce, or who are in and out of the workforce due to episodic illness, or who wish to return to work after a lengthy period of illness. The Aspiring Workforce are an untapped source of labour who can play an important role in addressing urgent business needs and skills shortages.
Join Rebecca Gewurtz and Margaret Oldfield from McMaster University, Emile Tompa from the Institute for Work and Health, and the Mental Health Commission of Canada as we explore the business case for hiring and retaining individuals with a mental illness.
In 2013, the MHCC and key partners released The Aspiring Workforce: Employment and Income for People with Serious Mental Illness. The intent of the project was to identify existing and innovative practices that would help people living with a serious mental illness to secure and sustain meaningful employment (or sustainable income).
In an effort to carry out the recommendations of the Aspiring Workforce report to eliminate barriers of employment for individuals with severe mental illness the MHCC undertook a project to understand the business case from the employer’s point of view that examines how a strategic decision to actively recruit and retain people from the Aspiring Workforce addresses urgent business needs and skill shortages. This webinar will introduce the audience to the project and some of the initial findings.
This webinar is hosted by the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
