WIL helps students but it helps businesses grow and develop too. WIL creates opportunities for managers and supervisors to learn new skills, including mentorship, active listening, and feedback and assessment. Successful and innovative businesses also need to foster equity, diversity, and inclusion and doing that means creating safe, inclusive spaces and inviting more voices to the decision-making table. 

BHER has developed tools and resources to help employers like you adopt best practices and strategies when creating a WIL placement or program in your organization. Below you’ll find guides relating to equity, diversity, and inclusion, mentorship, and performance assessment. By no means are these resources meant to be definitive. But they’ll help get you started. Check back regularly because new resources will be added soon.
