EMPLOYER SERVICES
Are you looking to hire? TRACKS is your one- stop employment service, with the objective to connect employers who are willing to provide on-the-job training and work experience to unemployed people who are eager and ready to be trained. Employers who operate a business in Ontario who are looking to hire staff, may benefit from Employment Ontario if they are willing to provide quality supervision and training, develop a comprehensive training plan and provide opportunities for job trials on the job training placements, or ongoing employment. There are many ways TRACKS can help employers, but here are just a few:

• Save employers time and money in the hiring process by identifying suitable candidates for the job, and pre-screening eligible participants
• Assist the employee in developing a training plan
• Support the employer through monitoring the participant’s on the job progress
• Provide training incentives to offset some of the training costs

Through this program, employers are able to find the right person for the job, and may reduce costs associated with training a new employee.
