NPower Canada gives their participants practice, critical thinking and problem-solving tools that most entry level positions require. We know that people who have been through [the program] are interested in tech and have a solid knowledge base. Their onboarding time was 10 per cent less than normal.

We were searching for a new hire for several weeks but shortly after we started interviewing NPower Canada participants we knew we found the perfect candidates. As new employees they get up to speed quickly. We knew we had the perfect employee within 50 per cent of the usual 3 month probation.
