You’re Hired! Workforce Development at Safe Haven

Workforce Development you are hired-1You’re Hired! A Safe Haven client recently heard these words and is starting orientation this week at All About Care Non-Medical Home Care. This client is getting into a field that she really enjoys and hopes to return to school to advance her career in the field of elder care.

Through our workforce development program at Safe Haven, we are building the skills of our clients and working with potential employers to hire our families’ working parents. One way we do this is through an onsite hiring fair every other week. These hiring fairs feature only one employer at a time that has several open positions. I do a workshop with clients on the morning of the hiring fair to prepare them for the application and interview process. The clients then meet with the employer onsite to complete the application and interview. The company recruiter then takes the applications back to the office and determines candidates for a second interview at their company.

All About Care was the host employer at our last in-house hiring event. The CEO of All About Care recently attended a Safe Haven Lunch and Learn. He said he loves Safe Haven and the work we do. And he even made it a point to introduce himself during the interview with our client.

These partnerships with potential employers are essential to our workforce development program. We are grateful to All About Care and excited that our client starts her new job this week!
