Who should attend the Emergent WorkForce program?

The Emergent WorkForce program works to reduce stress, improve personal performance, improve engagement, and reduce turnover.

Some of the organizational challenges that the program supports are:

Growth through acquisition

An acquisition always creates some job redundancy for both the purchasing company, and the acquired one. Fear of job loss, dealing with change of responsibilities, transfers to other locations all serve to create stress, and hamper productivity.

Growth through expansion

As your organization grows in a strong business climate, there are necessary changes to the organizational structure. Departments may expand, or split into areas of focus that were not possible when the company was smaller. Shifts in responsibilities and a new learning curve creates uncertainty – a major source of job stress.

Downsizing:

Tough economic times often require a company to trim their operations to align with a reduced revenue stream. Employees face the potential of lay-offs, and those remaining are often given increased workloads. As an economy struggles, the “who’s next’ fear of lay-offs continues to weigh on your staff.

The Emergent WofkForce program works to shift perceptions, to alleviate stress by providing powerful tools to manage it, and to improve focus and concentration. Together, performance is enhanced.

Which program is right for my organization?

There is a cost to every training program. That cost consists of not only the course fees, but also of the salaries of those attending, who are away from their responsibilities. Meals and travel can also have a significant impact the total cost.

We know that the bigger the toolbox – the more tools an employee has available to them, the greater their success will be.

We share the same objective that every successful organization – to provide maximum value for the best price. To maximize the benefit:cost ratio.

To that end, there are three levels in the Emergent Workforce program:

Emergent Workforce Foundation.

This is a 2 day program designed to provide your employees with a good foundation to support their health and well-being.

How much does it cost?

The tuition to send 25 employees to the Emergent WorkForce Foundation is $1750 per attendee.

The tuition for those same 25 employees to the Emergent WorkForce XXX is $2575. However, when combined with the Canada job grant, the real cost to attend is reduced to approximately $1030 per attendee.

Tuition for the Emergent WorkForce YYY is $3225 per employee when sending 25 people, which may be reduced to approximately $1290 with the Canada job grant.

Where do you offer the Emergent WorkForce programs?

We recognize that sending employees to a training program can represent a significant cost when including travel, meals and accommodation. We would much rather travel to you, than to have your people travel to us.

We offer our programs as close as feasible to your place of work. We typically use hotel meeting space for our events, but we also consider other options that may be more convenient for your staff. Our goal is to minimize the disruption of schedules for your employees, knowing that they all have responsibilities outside of work.
