With special guest, Melenie Olfert, the Program Coordinator for the Diversity and Intercultural Training Program at Manitoba Start.
Many Manitoba companies hire immigrant workers and this webinar will provide you with suggestions on how to communicate and accommodate cultural differences and improve employee safety.
When people move to another country they move into another culture. A new culture has ideas, attitudes and experiences that may be slightly or even vastly different from those where the individuals come from. It is important to understand those differences. This webinar will provide some advice and guidance to employers in developing a tolerant and safe workplace community that will allow new Canadians to cope and assimilate safely into their new Canadian workplace.
Presented topics will include:
- Immigration demographics: what is happening in terms of immigration
- Cultural view of workplace safety
- Suggestions on how to communicate and accommodate cultural differences and improve employee safety.
The Challenges and Rewards of Hiring Immigrant Workers is scheduled for Thursday, September 18 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm CDT. To register for this webinar, click here.
