Research + HR Training
ETHOS coordinates a variety of workforce-related research such as labour market skill shortages and partners in workforce development models.
Promoting Best HR Practices
ETHOS provides information to employers on HR issues such as recruitment, retention, training and legal issues through the ETHOS portal website, e-newsletter, articles in trade publications, and speaking regularly at industry events and conferences.
ETHOS helps businesses gain access to relevant front-line, team leadership, and management skills training for their employees.
No matter what barriers to employment one might be facing, ETHOS believe everyone is capable of pursuing their dreams.
Addressing Labour Shortages
There is no “silver bullet” to address labour and skills shortages. ETHOS identifies, anticipates and responds to current and emerging labour and skills shortages in industry sectors within Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley and the Okanagan. Orchestrating the continuing economic development of ETHOS service areas and ensuring that individuals are properly prepared to be self – sufficient is the key work of ETHOS members. If asset mapping of our regions shows — as it does in most communities — that entrepreneurs are key to the continuing economic development of the region, then policies and training that focus on self – employment are enacted.
Entrepreneurial Awareness + Training
ETHOS has developed a regional framework for Innovation and Entrepreneurship to guide our efforts to help people become self – employed and use their business skills for their personal self – sufficiency as well as generate employment for others. First, the regional framework helps establish a seamless network of active, committed, collaborative partners to serve diverse entrepreneurs in various stages of business development.
ETHOS, with the support of partner organizations, has launched a multi-channel self-employment awareness campaign which is designed to attract people to self-employment and small business launch. The campaign targets multiple demographic groups and its tactics include career fairs, public relations activities, school and career centre presentations, e-newsletter, and social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
