One way we can be of practical benefit to businesses is to become involved with business associations in our community. Steinbach is the largest community in southeast Manitoba, and about 30 km from Providence. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada, and renowned for its vibrant business sector.
The Director of the Buller Centre joined the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce’s Human Resources Committee in 2010.
The Committee surveyed Steinbach businesses to ask them what workshops and short training events they thought would most improve their businesses. Five events were put on by the Chamber’s HR Committee in the 2010-2011 year; three were sponsored by the Buller Centre:
|24 Nov 2010||Employee Motivators Workshop||Chamber||e-bulletin|
|17 Feb 2011||Employee Retention Workshop||Chamber||poster|
|24 Feb 2011||Newcomers Employment Fair||MySteinbach.Ca||New employment fair coming to Steinbach|
|Steinbach Immigrant and Newcomer Employment Fair a success|
|Dawson Trail Dispatch||First immigrant fair exceeds expectations|
This has been a excellent relationship for the Buller Centre, and we’ll be repeating this process for the 2011-2012 year.
