History

The origin of the concept

The Europeans understood this. As early as 1870, the first training companies (EE) appeared in Germany. Since then, the concept has evolved and actively spread across the Old Continent. Very popular for more than 50 years throughout Europe, the practice firm arrived in Canada in 1995 with the Canadian Practice Enterprise Network (CPEN). The primary mission of a training company is to help unemployed people return to the workforce quickly. To do so, the company offers future workers a dynamic and stimulating environment to update their technical, linguistic, and operational knowledge to obtain a job.

The early days

Founded in 1998, Propulsion Carrière’s mission is to help workers in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region re-enter the labor market through the concept of a training company. We are also the only training company in Saguenay.

Since the opening, more than 1200 participants have worked in the training business that is Propulsion Carrière. Of this number, 80% found a place in their field, and 90% have kept their job for a long time.

The region’s employers are not left out. Dozens of them use Propulsion Carrière to find qualified and motivated workers who are up-to-date on new ways of doing things.

A new look

In 2012, a need for change was felt. Indeed, the training company, which had been operating until then under the name Odyssée Québec-Monde, decided to change its name to Propulsion Carrière. The new name better reflects the company’s mission: to serve as a springboard to launch or re-launch the careers of workers seeking employment.

A history full of success

In addition to the excellent placement and retention rates, the participants’ efforts coordinated with the support of Propulsion Carrière are producing recognized results!!
