REES Workplace of the Month

St. Raphael Wellness Centre,(SRWC-) is the REES Workplace of the month.

St. Raphael Wellness CentreSt. Raphael Wellness Centre,(SRWC-) is a Diversity Champion Employer. 

In a short span of time, SRWC has hired two employees from REES’s Co-Op Project to add to their team, enhancing SRWC’s ability in continuation to deliver services.

SRWC is a not-for-profit community-based organization which offers, Pre and Post treatment non-residential education and counselling program for individuals and families affected by addiction.

SRWC recovery programs are based on the Continuum of Recovery Model, an evidenced-based approach proven effective in addiction recovery.
Because SRWC offers unique programs, it was absolute key for REES to find the right match. The Co-Op Project assessed and trained both individuals, and found that both could offer the skills necessary to fit SRWC’s team. SWRC was also screened to determine if accommodations would be possible for the candidates who had multiple health conditions and ultimately was of most priority of REES.

Finding the fit for both the potential employees and the employer became more of a partnership or collaboration, as communication simply flowed. This was evident when meeting all staff during a staff meeting where an educational opportunity was not needed as all frontline staff knew and were quick to identify examples of what an employer could do to accommodate an employee with the condition presented. 

Right then and there, defining the job, and finding that match was the next natural action.

Strong communication between both REES and SRWC continue today, as both employees are not only employed, but SRWC has taken the next step in investing in both employees by registering them into several courses since January 2015 to assist them in growing in the field.

Employers such as SRWC who see such potential in hiring people with Health Conditions and/or Physical Disabilities, who then proceed to go to the next step in embracing that potential in their employees is well recognized by REES.
