Current government-funded employment and training support programs have primarily focused on serving job seekers. At SCP, we believe that greater impact can be achieved by balancing the equation – by placing equal emphasis on meeting the needs of employers and job seekers.
Our goal is to ensure that job seekers (“supply”) are able to meet the needs of employers (“demand”). This means bringing employers to the heart of the system, as partners in the design, governance and evaluation of pre-employment programs. It can also mean involving employers in funding allocation decisions. Ultimately, we want to ensure that skills training and pre-employment preparation make job seekers attractive to employers, and set up employees for success on the job. The employer, the job seeker, and society all win.
