Through a range of resources, supports and services, ES bridges the gap between the employment needs of individuals and the skilled labour needs of employers The five components of ES provide a highly flexible tool kit of services that can be customized to an individual’s particular needs. ES is not all things to all people, and not all people will require the same supports or the support of all components This integration of service components allows for a responsive suite of service options that are truly client-centric
