Tools and Resources for Employers

Is isn't easy being a business owner. In addition to the knowledge and skills you need to operate in your field of business, you also need to know about human resources, hiring and managing employees, employee engagement, tax law, employment standards and many other pieces of legislation. However, there are many resources out there available for employers and business owners to access. Services exist that can help you with hiring the right employee for that hard-to-fill role and with questions about how to help your employees develop their skills and succeed in their jobs. If you need a position filled in a hurry, candidate screening and placement services are available at no cost from the Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre.

As an employer, it is important for you to understand how to motivate and support your staff, how to keep them safe and how to ensure your organization is a great place to work. All this information and more can be found at the Durham Region Unemployed Help website.
