COVID-19 UPDATE - JUNE 3, 2020

Happy June friends! 

 

A reminder that WERC is still “open for business” as we work remotely to keep our staff and clients safe and healthy.  Initially we were looking forward to opening our door in early June – we have yet to hear any updates.  

 

Currently, we are using remote technology and are still available to support your employment and job search needs. We are still doing client intakes over the phone, resumes, cover letters and job search online, helping to prepare for interviews and providing support for employment barriers. Please also keep checking our Facebook page – Women’s Employment Resource Centre.  

Our staff are keeping to regular business hours of Monday to Thursday 9 – 4:30 and Friday 9 – 4.  If you are an employer and are still hiring – please give our Job Developer Karen Nilsson an email and she will get back to you to answer your questions and provide support. 

 

WERC has implemented the many Health and Safety protocols as required by Southwestern Public Health and the Ministry of Labour.  Plexiglas sneeze guards are in place around the front reception area, in all staff offices and in the workshop rooms.  PPE is in place, hand sanitizer is available to use in every room and at the front desk.  Anti-bacterial soap is available in the washroom.  A sign-in/screening assessment will be completed confidentially by both staff and clients coming in to the centre. 

 

In the meantime, we can be reached at 519-421-2077 (please leave a name and number and we will return your call as fast as possible – even better – give us an idea of what you might need and we can direct you to the right Employment Counsellor!). 

We can also be reached by email at heather@werc.ca.

 

During this time, the Small Business Centre is posting some excellent and informative materials on government funding updates.  We encourage you to “Like” their Facebook page for the most updated information.

 

 

Take care and be safe and healthy!

COVID-19 UPDATE

 

The Women’s Employment Resource Centre has closely followed Southwestern Public Health’s advisories regarding the COVID-19 virus and the directions of our funders.  We are committed to ensuring our clients continue to access employment assistance supports during this time.

 

 

As of Wednesday, March 16th, we will temporarily provide our delivery of services online/by phone until Monday, April 6th with an update to follow then. This measure is in place so clients can stay home and still be able to access individual service. If you are a new client seeking job search assistance, you can email werc@werc.ca or call 519-421-2077 and leave a voice mail for assistance, and please allow up to 48 hours for a response.

 

 

If you are currently a client, working with an employment counsellor or Job Developer, you may contact them by email so we can continue to provide online support. Please check our website for a list of staff emails. 

 

 

Thank you for your continued patience during this time.  Please look for regular updates on our website and social media!!  Our staff and Board of Directors wish for all of you to treasure your families right now and take this “break” as a time to breathe, refresh, evaluate and move forward!
