REES Workplace of the Month

The Bethania Group, is the REES Workplace of the month.

The Bethania GroupLast month The Bethania Group, a private consortium of personal care homes for seniors that includes amongst others, Bethania PCH and the Pembina Place PCH, began hosting 2 of our REES Hiring Incentive Project (RHIP) participants in resident companion positions.  In setting up these placements, the experience was positive and easy to negotiate. Discussions on workplace accommodations, hours of work and start dates all went smoothly, with never a concern about the logistics or suitability of the referred participants.  Interviews merely confirmed their appropriate skill sets and qualifications. The key to ensuring success in this regard is for the employment counsellor to carefully pre-screen all candidates prior to making any referral. Where requirements like criminal record and vulnerable sector checks are needed, it is important to confirm that these have been secured prior to the interviews.

Both participants have reported back that their RHIP placements continue to be highly enjoyable with the only complaints being that they wanted to work even more hours than those for which they were already scheduled. Supervisors, workers and management at both locations have all been supportive and friendly. Pembina Place PCH is also home to the elderly residents of the Deaf Centre of Manitoba, so the RHIP participant there is learning ASL as an added bonus. 
Kudos to the Bethania Group for their inclusive, respectful and friendly workplace!
