Educational Success

Employers Committed to Educational Success

All employers can take action for educational success

Educational success and school perseverance are a long-lasting solution to the shortage of qualified labour.

The Employeurs engagés pour la réussite éducative (EERÉ) movement in Estrie seeks to raise awareness and support employers in their role in educational success. During this labour shortage, we must support this cause more than ever in order to ensure the socio-professional development of the greatest number of individuals and to consolidate the development of a competent and qualified next generation of workers.

Be an employer committed to educational success

Check out our “Be an employer committed to educational success” brochure to learn more about the movement.

You’ll find all the information you need regarding employers committed to educational success, the benefits of joining the movement, and the positive impact it has on businesses.

Testimony - Nathalie Savard, Human Resources Manager, Verbom

“Practically, being an engaged employer means sound management of our staffing, working on the retention and engagement of our employees.”

Testimony - Olivier Lacombe, Co-Founder and Technical Director, eLab Extrusion

“Helping our workforce and youth develop their technical skills allows us to develop quality products.”
