Labour Market Partnership
The non-profit labour force dedicates itself to making important contributions to the social and economic health of our community. In order to do this successfully, the sector needs the right people with the right skills.
There are clear signs that organizations in the sector struggle to recruit and keep the talent they need.
The Labour Market Partnership, now under the stewardship of the Non-Profit Sector Employers’ Council (the Employers’ Council), is addressing human resource issues in the non-profit sector. Our ultimate aim is to ensure talented and skilled people continue to fill the varied missions and mandates of the many non-profits that make our province a better place to live. To do this, we have the following goals:
Organizations will be actively investing in acquiring and establishing strategic human resources management capabilities.
Organizations will be actively investing in acquiring and establishing strong operational human resource practices.
Non-profit sector workers will have access to a system of select monetary and non-monetary benefits.
Non-profit sector employers will report a reduction in labour shortages due to increased participation by groups under-represented in the workforce, including Aboriginal, immigrant, mature, disabled and/or youth workers.
Organizations forecasting leadership transitions will be embarking on a proven executive leadership succession process.
The turnover rate among experienced management and frontline workers will be materially reduced and the supply of frontline workers will be more stable.
Current and potential workers will perceive the sector as a choice employer.
