Cochrane District Social Planning Council Our friends and partners at the Timmins Chamber of Commerce, Explore Your Options / Explore tes options Far North East Training Board along with Northern College have created an Employer Database, which will help organizations to collaborate and retain employees!

More information:

A new Employer Database has been launched that allows local employers to be matched with other employers who have non-full-time employees with a similar skill set.

Once matched with another employer, an arrangement can be made to share the employee(s) in order to fit their respective individual labour needs. This in turn allows non-full-time employees to attain full-time hours or employment, thereby retaining talent in Northern Ontario.

The Employer Database was created by Northern College in partnership with the Timmins Chamber of Commerce and the Far Northeast Training Board.

LTN: How to Develop a Strategic Plan
November 22, 2017 · 8:00 am · 11:00 am
MacMillan Boardroom, CMHA Building (220 2nd Avenue, Timmins, Ontario)
A Strategic Plan is the formalized road map that describes how your organization executes its operations; it spells out where your organization is going over the next year or more and how it is going to get there. It can be focused on the organization as a whole, or on a specific department or program. A Strategic Plan helps to focus the energy, resources and time of everyone within the organization to work in the same direction.

Workshop will:
• Demystify and explain the key elements of Strategic Planning.
• Provide insight on the types of plans.
• Discuss the value of the participatory approach to Strategic Planning.
• Assess your organization’s readiness, commitment and capacity for planning.
• Introduce strategic planning tools, techniques and resources.

Who should attend?
Board members and staff of organizations who would like to:
• Gain insight on Strategic Planning.
• Improve their organization’s performance.
• Increase stakeholders’ / members’ commitment.
• Decrease time spent on crisis management.
• Access more resources.

Workshop facilitator: Laurier Gadoury

Laurier has over 35 years of experience as a community and organizational development consultant and facilitator. He has facilitated and participated in a wide range of planning exercises. His work experience in various sectors, including the not-for-profit, education, sports and recreation, culture and citizenship, brings a unique blend of knowledge and practicality to his sessions.
