CEC Staff Participate in Middlesex County Library’s first Neighbourhood Days

October 25, 2019 – Community Employment Choices would like to thank the Middlesex County Library for the opportunity to participate in its first Neighbourhood Days held during Ontario Public Library Week (October 21 through to the 25th, 2019). This was an opportunity to discuss CEC’s services with library patron’s at the Comprehensive Branches, along with other area partner agencies, and bring to light the variety of information and programs that are offered throughout the County.

As a reminder, Employment Advisors from Community Employment Choices meet on a weekly basis with clients at the Dorchester, Glencoe, Parkhill and Lucan libraries as well as provide information to the Strathroy Library’s Service Canada outreach. If you would like a time to meet at one of these locations, please call 519-245-4500 to schedule a time.

Employer RoundTable Discussions

Thursday, October 10, 2019 – Community Employment Choices was pleased to host, in partnership with Invest in Middlesex and the Middlesex Workforce Development Partnership , an Employer Roundtable Forum 2nd edition. Under the excellent guidance of facilitator Eric Sloat, President of Knowledgeshare, the dynamic group of Middlesex County employers participated in effective group sharing and roundtable conversation with a goal of further identifying current issues related to worker recruitment and retention in Middlesex County. A variety of issues and challenges were addressed followed with recommendations and discussion around how to implement change. It was a morning of good food, good conversation and notes in preparation for future dialogue.
