CLAC Chooses Corridor for Training
Training a Diverse Workforce on Drug & Alcohol Awareness and Safe & Respectful Workplace
Formed in 1952, CLAC (Christian Labour Association of Canada) is a national union representing over 60,000 workers in almost every sector of the economy. Based on values of respect, dignity, and fairness, CLAC is committed to building better workplaces, better communities, and better lives. CLAC strongly believes that education and training are critical for members across a broad range of sectors that cover construction, mining, education, emergency services, entertainment, hospitality, healthcare and social services, manufacturing, retail, security, transportation and warehousing.
CLAC members seek employment in many different industries that require proper training in health and safety policies to be eligible for work. The union required a provider of “expert content” for their online training portal that covered Alcohol and Drug Awareness and CSRW (Creating a Safe and Respectful Workplace) topics. To ensure the success of CLAC members in their workplaces, it was critical for this training to be current regarding legislative changes, legal precedents and industry best practices. In addition, CLAC required training that could be customized to reflect their unique values and branded with their look to fit seamlessly into their portal.
In their search to find a provider of high-quality training that was authored by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), CLAC chose Corridor. The Corridor SMEs are recognised industry leaders in their respective areas and are active in shaping policy and practice in strategic areas of — including Drugs & Alcohol, and Creating a Safe and Respectful Workplace, that includes Workplace Bullying & Harassment, and Diversity & Inclusion. CLAC was confident in the quality of the content to ensure the safety of members and help them to be successful and highly employable.
”Education is the best tool that we can give our members. At CLAC we want to make workplaces a better place so members can be safe, improve their skills, and obtain the knowledge required to succeed in the workplace. Corridor provides us with a library of online training applications that our members are able to access online, 24/7. Given the geographic scope and different shifts of our members, the ability for easy access and just in time training was essential.”
