This week marks the second year NATIONAL has been locally recognized as the Best Connector Organization in Halifax, Nova Scotia. As a key partner in attracting and retaining talent, NATIONAL understands the importance of fostering growth for the next generation. Connecting with new Canadians, grads and students to expand their network is a key component in creating positive impact on youth retention rates in the Atlantic provinces.
The award was presented on October 17 at Halifax Partnership’s 2018 Game Changers Gala. Game Changers, a three-year program sponsored by TD, allows for youth to connect with employers and businesses in their prospective field of work, leading youth to sustainable jobs in their hometowns and employers to top talent. This program has been adopted by multiple economic development organizations and regional enterprise networks across the country and continues to help cities and communities attract and retain talent.
