Western Landscape Services

The cost of training employees can be expensive, especially for a small business in the landscaping industry.

“Our company performs intensive safety training with new employees. Safety training is forefront in our industry and required by law to ensure workers are well protected in their environment.” said Carol, Office Manager of Western Landscape Services in Elginburg. At the start of the spring, Carol was hiring staff to provide landscaping services and wanted to make the cost of training more affordable. Carol reached out to ReStart, and Nuray, one of ReStart’s Job Developers responded immediately. “Nuray contacted me and offered her assistance in applying for opportunities that were available to help offset training costs. So, we started the process right away.”

Carol expressed her appreciation for the high level of customer service that Nuray provided. “I have a busy job and Nuray made the process easy. She initiated and completed all the necessary paperwork, which saved me time and the company money. She followed up to ensure the process went smoothly and in a timely fashion. Nuray’s expertise and professionalism was a valuable asset during the time she worked with me.”

As a result of working with and hiring through ReStart, the company found itself a valuable employee. The team member passed his three month probation mark and is performing duties at work that are a good fit for him. “He is now a valuable team member, enjoys the work that he does and has benefited from the training he has received.”

Nuray was an integral part of connecting Carol to the opportunities provided through Employment Ontario. Overall, Carol and her company had a very positive experience with ReStart. “I can’t say enough good things about Nuray. I would absolutely work with ReStart again!”
