Resources for Employment Service Providers (ESPs)
We promote innovation and promising practices in both the business and employment services sectors.
- ODEN curates and develops case studies of businesses that excel at creating inclusive workplaces. We use these as examples and demonstrations with other businesses and as part of our training for employment service providers.
- For employment service providers, we study the high performers. We identify what they’re doing well and share that information across the province.
- We promote individual tools, practices and initiatives that are unique and/or promising and have the potential for replication. Here too, we use the learnings in parts of our training modules.
- ODEN has partnered with Community Living Essex County and Partners for Planning to develop the MCCSS supported Knowledge Translation and Transfer Hub, hosted on the Real Xchange.
To achieve successful outcomes, service providers need a variety of resources, such as functional expertise, specialized skill sets and developed service solutions.
These are considerable offerings for any single service provider to deliver on their own.
This is why choosing to collaborate and partner with service providers in your community can be critical for the overall success of job seekers, and in turn, your organization. This is true in both large, urban areas and in smaller, rural communities.
In 2019 ODEN developed a comprehensive Partnership Guidebook, available for download as a fillable workbook or in hard copy. This resource provides templates and discussion guides, case studies, and information on how, why and when to partner with other organizations.

Innovations and promising practices
ODEN delivers a comprehensive Train–the-Trainer module for ESP’s, School Boards, and College CICE’s on the following programs and curriculum:
JobPath is an award winning, six-week employment discovery program delivered through facilitated learning and employment-related field trips. It provides the opportunity for participants to learn about themselves and interact in a group setting while preparing for employment. JobPath is an excellent transition tool for students as well as job seekers who have limited academic backgrounds or work histories.
Summer Youth Employment Toolkit
The number-one indicator of successful labour-market attachment to people who have severe disabilities, upon graduation from school, was having had a paid job while in school.
This program demonstrates the value of early intervention. Young adults who participate in Summer Employment Transitions programs gain skills and learn workplace habits at a much earlier age. This eases their transition to adulthood and employment.
