News : Province Providing Employment Supports to Sykes Employees
July 2, 2014 -- Officials with the Department of Advanced Education and Skills will meet with Sykes Enterprises and the City of Corner Brook this week to offer employment supports and services to 94 employees affected by the upcoming closure of the company’s contact centre.
"We are sensitive to the challenges and concerns of those affected and we will work with Sykes Enterprises, the Department of Innovation, Business and Rural Development and the City of Corner Brook to offer employment supports and services," said Kevin O’Brien, minister of Advanced Education and Skills, in a press release.
"We have dedicated staff resources in our Corner Brook office to assist displaced workers in seeking retraining or new employment opportunities," said O’Brien.
The release also said that Advanced Education and Skills has begun an employee and skills assessment inventory of impacted workers which will help match employees’ needs to the services offered through the department. The data will be used to work with educational and training institutions in the region for retraining opportunities, to identify new employers and tailor a job fair for displaced workers. Information sessions and one-on-one employment services will be provided.
