BC JobConnect: Making it Easy for Employers to Connect to New Canadians
On April 4, 2019 IEC-BC hosted a webinar with the Burnaby Board of Trade to familiarize employers with BC JobConnect. Employers learned how to build an inclusive workplace culture to help new Canadians thrive, thus maximizing their returns on inclusion. Employers also discovered tools and resources to successfully hire and retain newcomers. Participants also heard from employers on their experience of finding and onboarding newcomers, and how they benefited from it. The webinar was moderated by IEC-BC’s Sangeeta Subramanian and features opening remarks from Paul Holden, President and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade. The webinar features information and a walkthrough from IEC-BC’s Hanif Ladha and Alvaro Rivera. In addition, the webinar features a moderated panel of guest speakers including Jonathan Leebosh, Partner People Advisory Services at Ernst & Young (EY), Sam Chhay, Human Resources Business Partner at ALS Canada and IEC-BC’s Eduardo Bananal.
