think differently & Get more jobs! What Successful Organizations Are Doing Bill Santos EMP Oakville
New Approaches were needed How to deal with job seekers that could not access the market as a result of their own efforts? How to deal with job seekers that were not motivated to work - or stay working?
Our goal as a Company To ensure that job seekers will all types of barriers to employment could access and keep employment. To do this at a systemic and operational level.
Begin by sorting the job seekers Three possible groups
Each group demands different intervention strategies People who with some development and/or support will be able to find and sustain work on their own! - Easy to Serve
Each group demands different intervention strategies People who have no real access to the labor market; can have any level of employment barrier and above or below average skill competencies - Harder to Serve
Each group demands different intervention strategies People who should be able to get work on their own or through third party job development, but do not and if they do, they cannot keep the job - Chronically Unemployed
The Employment barrier profiles Profile “A” CAN get a job on their own (motivated & skilled) Profile “B” SHOULD be able to get a job on their own, but cannot (motivated & skilled) Key Barriers: Does not know how to self market to the employer Cannot get by employer’s perception of external characteristics
The Employment barrier profiles Profile “C” WANT to get a job but cannot (Limited skills & motivated) Profile “D” WON’T work or cannot hold a job (maybe skills & no motivation) Key Barriers: Limited abilities and cannot get by employer’s perception of external characteristics Not motivated to work
Two intervention strategies Developmental Interventions/Strategies - interventions that focus on the job seeker with the intent of enhancing the job seeker’s competencies
Two intervention strategies Marketing Interventions/Strategies - interventions that focus on the employer with the intent of gaining acceptance of the job seeker.
The basic belief The employability standard is achieved through a linear developmental process. Linear - progress in one direction - successful completion of one step grants entry into the next. IntakeAssessment Training Job Placement Developmental Marketing
developmental interventions Growth in competencies and their recognition got you a job All clients will be able to develop sufficiently Intensification of the predominant development strategy was most effective for people with more employment barriers
an alternative strategy This is a ‘micro’ not a ‘macro’ strategy At a macro level employers will not ‘reframe’ their employability standards whereas they will at a micro level Employability standards at a micro level are changed through marketing interventions because hiring decisions are highly volatile
How do you get an employer to Reframe? How do you get an employer to reframe (shift) their hiring criteria? Timing/viability Non-competitive Probing Building solutions that benefit the employer
exchange theory Benefits Costs Perception
Myths! You have to be Job Ready to work! The more barriers a job seeker has - the more time you need to spend with the job seeker!
