VANCOUVER — Joey Restaurant Group has just been named A Top Employer for Young People in Canada for 2016 by Canada’s Top 100 Employers, based on attraction and retention of young workers.
The award recognizes the company’s availability of co-op or work-study programs, mentorship and training opportunities, appreciation and recognition for those who complete courses and professional designation as well as its career management programs.
“We are so honoured to be recognized for our development and apprenticeship programs,” says Andrew Martin, VP of Human Resources. “It is important to us to not just create job opportunities but actual career paths where our individuals can grow with Joey, develop their skills, get an education, receive certification all while still earning a wage. We feel strongly that young people should not have to choose between an income and personal development. At Joey they are one in the same and we stand behind our people.”
Joey has partnered with culinary schools and education programs in each of the regions it operates in, offering scholarships and bursaries to provide ongoing support for student careers.
