Onboarding and training team members is a critical part of an organization’s success. Investing in training is key to remaining competitive in any marketplace and is proven to improve business results.
Funded by the Government of Canada’s Workforce Development Agreement, the Canada-Manitoba Job Grant (CMJG) has a mandate to invest in training future and current employees—increasing the participation of Manitobans in the labour force.
Manitoba-based organizations that need to train existing and new employees may be eligible for grant funding, and Homefield People & Strategy can help identify specific areas where businesses may want to consider hiring, training, or remodeling operations to improve retention.
Last year, an organization in southern Manitoba took advantage of the CMJG to engage Homefield People & Strategy and really understand the current state of their business and their team. After identifying strengths and weaknesses, they used that information to leverage their goals and priorities for the next 3 years.
By breaking down their goals into step-by-step priorities, Homefield People & Strategy was able to help them focus on one action step at a time, with each action step serving their larger goals. These steps included training and developing managers to have better conversations, lead well, and support their teams in personalized ways.
Your organization can apply for up to $10,000 of training funds per employee, to a maximum of $100,000 overall. The grant covers 75% of training costs for organizations not exceeding 100 employees. Businesses with over 100 employees can apply for up to 50% cost coverage.
In addition to helping business owners and organizational leaders identify training needs in the areas of leadership development, team development, and other business solutions, they also work together with you to complete your application.
Homefield’s delivery is either in-person or virtually, and their engaging, fun, collaborative approach generates enthusiastic buy-in from management and staff alike.
Manitoba-based organizations have recognized the opportunity in the current economy, and the Canada-Manitoba Job Grant, in tandem with Homefield People & Strategy, presents a rare chance to take advantage of a government-provided funding boost.
