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 also assess what skills they have and where they are best suited to work, based on the assessment results. Along with their personal support needs, a plan is developed 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 practical goals for their life and career.
Jobhub180 provides a plan and the right support to help every person successfully transition back into the workforce and to work in roles and with organizations they never thought was possible because of their past.
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 maintain an active role to ensure it is a positive experience for all concerned. There is a transition period where the individual needs to be supported and where they need to be held accountable. There are physical needs such as transport, child care, legal matters, debts, accommodation and the like that can easily become overwhelming and impact their ability to work or 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 for any reason a person doesn’t work out, Jobhub180 will replace them for you and continue to support the person to help 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 you would like to hire permanently, we can plan for that to happen so they on-board successfully. If we believe there is good reason they may not be ready to live without our intervention, we would discuss that with you and agree on an appropriate plan to get them there. We would anticipate anywhere from 6 to 12 months is an acceptable 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 change and leading the way.
Jobhub180 appreciates and honours our employer partners for their support of this important cause.
