A Complete Online Resource Centre that Supports Education, Workplace and Life Readiness
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 2, 2015 /CNW/ -- It's no secret that people are juggling more roles and responsibilities than ever before. Evidence of this is that 4 out of 5 Canadians report being unsatisfied with their jobs and want to pursue new opportunities this year, while employers are scrambling to retain good talent. Even with a growing number of awareness campaigns about the importance of job skills and wellness, the majority of Canadians still report being confused about where to turn for credible information about education planning, career advancement, and the demands of adulthood.
To address this issue Pardy Group has created a free-to-use website called It's A Juggle www.itsajuggle.ca; a complete career advancement centre designed for anyone ages 17 to 71. Juggle curates the best online resources focused on sustained career success – providing hassle-free access to the most trusted information. The mobile friendly website contains 16 centres that address education planning, career development, workplace skills, learning, mental health, and wellness. Users can rate each resource and share what works best for them.
Dr. Linda Pardy is the vision behind this project. As an award winning instructor, Dr. Pardy has prepared thousands of adults to become productive employees and ongoing workplace learners. She knows firsthand the pressure people of all ages are experiencing when trying to become or remain workplace relevant. "The challenge today is to continuously develop our talents and remain healthy so that we have something of value to offer in the workplace," says Pardy. "It's A Juggle provides the tools and information needed for ongoing success."
