IEC-BC in conversation with Christian Codrington, Principal of Forum HCM
Before they were refugees, they were teachers, engineers, and nurses. Canada has given them a chance for a new life, and they are eager to give back – their resilience, skills and unique perspectives – and contribute to Canada’s economic prosperity. Join us online for an engaging conversation on how to tap into this talent pool and create a diverse, inclusive, and productive workforce.
Webinar participants will be provided with easy-to-use tools and resources to help them with their onboarding initiatives. This is part one of a webinar series on onboarding refugees hosted by IEC-BC.
Learn how to:
- prepare your workforce to welcome refugees
- create a welcoming and safe environment
- support refugees in the workplace
