Management Professionals (EMP) is a Canadian consulting and
training firm specializing in employment outcomes strategy and skill
development for organizations/staff serving people with employment
Since 1989 our
staff have been developing, refining and using job development solutions,
as well as building strategies and techniques for employment outcomes
are field-tested. We have worked with most employment barriers from
the easy to the hard (deaf/blind, SPMI) in areas with high unemployment,
with significant employer resistance and with staff who are beginners
or jaded veterans.
We focus on
- Abandon no
one to unemployment
- If you can
get jobs for the hardest to serve - you can get jobs for anyone
and employment are integral to the vocational services delivery
system. Solutions start at the top and involve a synergy throughout
want practical and proven methods, which make sense and can be used
at once. EMP workshops are designed to be interactive, practical
and immediately applicable. EMP staff use the skills we teach
in our workshops.
We help with
the implementation of our materials through distance consultations
or on-site coaching with staff as they plan for and visit with employers.
Core ideas that
are part of our thinking and training about job development are:
- Job seekers
do not have to be job ready to go to work. Plenty of people who
were not job ready are working.
- A linear
path works for the most able and a nonlinear path for the less
- We respond
to the job market; the job market does not respond to us.
- Job development
is sales and marketing, not education or counseling, although
education and counseling are often sales and marketing.
needs are the keys to jobs, not candidate skills.
- Failing at
a job is a good beginning, not a poor ending.
- The employer
is the linchpin to jobs - gain control here and all is possible.
- The only
absolute must in going to work is the motivation to work.
