Superior Adult Learning, a non-profit organization established in Sault Ste Marie in 1987, is pleased to
announce new services that will help small businesses in our community address ongoing hiring challenges.
Many sectors and occupations in Sault Ste. Marie have struggled to hire and retain the people they need for their business to be successful. Superior Adult Learning is helping to address these needs with their “Skills for Success” service, which is training people in 9 skills that Canadian employers demand. In addition, Superior Adult Learning is offering to help local small businesses simplify key job processes to
help new employees learn their jobs quickly and improve their confidence.
Martin Wyant, Executive Director of Superior Adult Learning, is looking forward to working more directly
with local small businesses.
“We can help employers simplify job descriptions by breaking them down into step-by-step instructions for easier comprehension. We will also be offering free soft skills assessment for employees. The results of the assessments can be used to develop a personalized learning plan, which can be supported with individual tutoring for each participant,” said Wyant. Our local labour market can benefit from the contributions of people with disabilities and newcomers to our community. Superior Adult Learning has recently hired employees with backgrounds in social work, teaching, business, communications, and other key sectors, with work experience from a variety of international locations. “Our staff diversity is a new and welcome source of strength,” said Wyant, “and it helps us pinpoint services and supports that can help new employees and employers.”
Members of the Superior Adult Learning team will be reaching out to local small businesses soon, to
introduce their organization and discuss how their new services can help employers and employees alike.
