Are you aware of the many advantages of hiring an Older Worker?

As an employer you know the amount of time and money required to place ads, prescreen and interview candidates, hire and train workers, only to find them leave you in a bind once “something better comes along” as they work their way up the corporate ladder.

Where do you find a dependable, steady workforce? A workforce dedicated to the job at hand and that takes pride in its work? Who will cost less to hire, train and maintain?

ACSBE most recently offered the Putting Experience to Work Program in Lunenburg County and Queens County December through March, 2013. 

Over the years ACSBE has been very successful in providing support to unemployed Older Workers in Lunenburg, Queens and Hants Counties aimed at re-integrating the Older Worker into meaningful employment through the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers program. The primary objective of this program is to prepare participants for new and immediate employment.

In order to be eligible to participate in this program, Older Workers must meet all of the following criteria:

• Be between 55-64 years of age
• Be unemployed
• Be a resident of community that program is being offered
• Be legally entitled to work in Canada
• Lack skills needed for successful re-integration into new employment 

All participants will be interviewed to determine both eligibility and suitability for the program.

ACSBE staff considers a person’s "Need" over "Want" when choosing participants.  Funding for this program is through Labour and Advanced Education and the Government of Canada.
