Sector Council beta tests connector tool

Connector to launch in the Fall, but is available now

Toronto, Ontario—Connector is a new HR tool for the supply chain created by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council. It connects people with information about a wide variety of supply chain occupations. Connector helps users understand the knowledge and essential skills needed to be safe and productive in these jobs.

For the rest of the summer, the Council will be beta testing Connector, working out any functional and informational glitches before the tool is launched in the fall. To ensure that the tool is bug-free and as useful as possible when it is widely released, it is being shared with the industry for testing.

The Council says beta testing will not take a lot of time. Participants contribute/invest approximately one hour of time from each of one or two members of their management/supervisory team and five to 10 employees. That’s a total of about 20 hours of time between now and September.

Participating organizations will:

  • have a manager/supervisor participate in a short online orientation;
  • have employees try out the web application; they do this individually, at a time that’s convenient for them; and,
  • have managers/supervisors and employees provide feedback by completing a brief online survey.

The number of assessments during beta testing is unlimited.
