Introduction to the “Immigrant-Friendly” Workplace
New webinar workshop
 
This 2-hour workshop explores the question “What makes a workplace supportive to immigrants?” 
 
This workshop will cover 6 key topics:
  • Organizational leadership (by senior managers and directors)
  • Strategy and planning
  • Resource allocation and incentives (financial and non-financial)
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Accountability, transparency and participation
  • Typical behaviours and beliefs
  • Research has shown the more broadly an organization engages with inclusion the more successful the outcomes.
When you are ready to assess the ‘immigrant-friendliness’ of your own organization our staff can walk you through a Workplace Culture Assessment on the 6 above areas (takes approx 1 hour to complete) and then recommend any further supports that may be needed.
 
Workshops are live-streamed, making them available to anyone in Nova Scotia. This a funded program — no cost to employers. Registration is required.
