How Employers Benefit
Job Ready Candidates
Each person is assessed by our support team to determine where they are at on their recovery journey and if they are ready to undertake the demands of full-time employment…
We Take The Risks
Jobhub180 employs people directly and thereby removes the risk to the employer. We assign the employee to a partner organization and maintain an active role in their employment to ensure it is a positive experience for all.
Jobhub180 employees are fully supported and have access to the necessary resources and services to take positive steps forward as they move into their new job
Replacement & On Boarding
If a jobhub180 employee is not a good fit for any reason, Jobhub180 will find a suitable replacement while continuing to support the person who was replaced.
By employing the recovery community through jobhub180, businesses and organizations have the opportunity to strengthen the community one person at a time.
Job Ready Candidates
Each person is assessed by our support team to determine where they are on their recovery journey and if they are ready to undertake the demands of employment. Our team also assesses what skills they have and where they are best suited to work based on the assessment results. Along with their personal support needs, we develop a plan that outlines what Jobhub180 and the individual will each focus on to ensure the person is prepared for work, has the necessary support structures in place and has identified practical goals for their life and career.
Jobhub180 provides a plan and tailored support to help every person successfully transition back into the workforce. Not only that, the employees work in positions and at organizations they never thought possible because of their past, as they continue on a road toward full and long-lasting recovery.
Employed By Jobhub180
Jobhub180 employs the person and removes much of the risk for our employment partners. We on-hire the employee to a partner organization and stay actively involved to ensure it is a positive experience for all concerned. Due to their recovering status, Jobhub180 provides the support and accountability for the employee during this critical transition period. Aside from the commitment to a new job, the employee is often facing personal challenges such as housing, transport, child care, legal matters and debts that can easily become overwhelming and impact their reliability at work.
A big concern for any employer of someone from an addiction background is managing the risk and “baggage” that they often bring. These are legitimate concerns and these people need a lot of support and guidance while also trying to adjust to the demands of work life. Work can just be another stress and sometimes can be too much for them to manage and handle by themselves.
Being employed by Jobhub180 means people are properly assessed to determine if they are ready for employment and then have the support mechanisms in place, while they adjust and build their confidence and competence in the workplace.
Jobhub180 employees are fully supported and have access to the necessary resources and services to take positive steps forward as they move into their new job. We monitor their progress and work with each person to break down the barriers that could potentially cause them to give up and remain trapped in the addiction cycle.
Most people coming out of recovery are hitting the “reset” button on life. It is not uncommon to have accumulated debts, outstanding child support, no driver’s license or transport, scheduled meetings with a parole officer or drug court, less than ideal living arrangements, and little or no support structures in place to help them navigate through all of the issues they now need to deal with. They also need to earn an income to not only address these issues but survive and start rebuilding. Meanwhile, many haven’t really addressed the root cause of their addiction and the stress of all of these challenges is too great; and they can ultimately fall back into the trap of addiction.
Jobhub180 is here to break the addiction cycle and to offer hope and a future for those in recovery.
Replacement & Onboarding
If an employee is not a good fit for any reason, Jobhub180 will quickly find a more suitable candidate while we continue to support the person who was let go, helping them to learn from the experience. This gives our employment partner full confidence to move forward, knowing they do not need to deal with the process of replacing a person should they not be suitable.
If a person works out well and they are someone the business/organization would like to hire permanently, we then plan for a successful transition. If we believe there is good reason they may not be ready to live without our intervention, we would discuss that and agree on a plan to get them there. We would anticipate anywhere from 6 to 12 months is a likely timeframe for someone to prove their ability and be ready to transition to permanent employment.
Contribution To The Community
There are many in our community who have been impacted by the addiction crisis and it will take a community-wide effort to make inroads into the crisis. New interventions are needed and support from the business community is a vital component of a pathway forward.
Jobhub180 offers employer partners new opportunities to facilitate company success and expansion and, at the same time, support community transformation, one person at a time. Being a socially responsible employer; really walking the talk, sends a clear message to employees and the market that you are committed to being the much needed change and leading the way.
Jobhub180 appreciates and honours our employer partners for their support of this important cause.
Our primary focus is to help those in our community who have been overlooked in their job search because of a past that may include homelessness, substance use, prison or mental illness. Finding and keeping steady employment is a central challenge that people with these experiences face on the road to recovery. Meaningful employment and a supportive community dramatically increases the likelihood of long term recovery, but it often eludes the very people who need it in order to move forward. Jobhub180 provides both employment and the support these individuals need to grow and be restored.
As an employer, you may find it increasingly difficult to grow or expand to meet business opportunities due to a shortage of reliable labor. Jobhub180’s recovery community offers a motivated and reliable work force to employers. For employers who are hesitant to take the risk of employing a person from the recovery community, Jobhub180 assumes that risk and ensures that the employee is job-ready and fully supported to be successful.
