Recruiting, Accommodating and Retaining Employees Living with Mental Health Problems or Illnesses

Description: Learn why recruiting aspiring workers makes good business sense. The term Aspiring Workforce describes those people who, due to mental illness, have been unable to enter the workforce, or who are in and out of the workforce due to episodic illness, or who wish to return to work after a lengthy period of illness. The Aspiring Workforce is an untapped source of labour who can play an important role in addressing urgent business needs and skills shortages.
