About the Event

Part 1 

Presentation: Sea of Change - Recruiting and Retaining | For All staff (60 min)

An excellent overview of the challenges, opportunities and specific areas to consider when recruiting and retaining employees from around the world. We identify barriers, solutions and the need to consider retaining, before you recruit.

Part 2 

Presentation: Welcoming Workplaces | For All staff (60 min)

An engaging look at how to make workplaces more welcoming. We review a range of areas to consider and explore foundational ideas, showing how “welcoming” is more than “being friendly.” Clear and benefits focused, we leave you inspired.

Part 3 

Workshop: Elements and Benefits of an Intercultural Workplace | For All staff (90 min)

The new gateway workshop to our services! With this online workshop we raise your awareness and start competent conversations within your organization. We identify the value immigrants bring to workplaces and set the building blocks for your improved workplace culture.

Registration online will be available when rescheduled.
