Indigenous Workforce & Staffing
Real Change starts with hiring Indigenous peoples. Little Fox Services recognizes many Indigenous people want to work, but face challenges in finding gainful and meaningful employment. Cultural, language, and traditional barriers cause many Indigenous peoples to be excluded. Many employers want to hire while increasing diversity in their workplace, but can’t find people with the skill sets they require. That’s why Little Fox Services Indigenous Workforce was created – to determine current and future skills gaps, identify employer needs, identify and select Indigenous people who need help entering the workforce, and then apply our Indigenous knowledge to create functionality that benefit both employers and job seekers. That’s the heart of Little Fox Services drive.
Over a staggering 75% of Indigenous peoples, do not feel comfortable working for a non-indigenous company, due to lack of opportunities, being accepted, integration into a non-indigenous work culture, and recognition of Indigenous heritage. Indigenous peoples surveyed found barriers with employers that understood Indigenous culture, language, tradition, and lifestyle that led to conflicts with employers, and lack of self-identification. Indigenous peoples face over 20% unemployment in Canada, and some First Nation Reserves over 80% of the population is unemployed.
Little Fox Services Indigenous Workforce feels privileged to help – and we are proud of our current results. Our Indigenous staff and candidates receive training in the skill sets that employers need the most. Employers have access to motivated, trained workers who can step in and contribute immediately to their productivity and growth. Little Fox Services promotes businesses, opportunity, and strengthens all Indigenous communities.
Despite corporate initiatives, much change is still needed to truly benefit Indigenous peoples. We take great pride in being an Indigenous owned company, that knows furthering the potential of Indigenous peoples will create a wealth of talent. Little Fox Services makes every effort to provide opportunities for all Indigenous peoples, from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and cultures to ensure the rewards and dignity of working.
