Event description

Description

You are Invited!

As an employer, you know that newcomers to BC bring skills, resilience, unique perspectives and connections from around the world that can help grow your business. Yet when it comes to recruiting, hiring and onboarding of immigrants there are still gaps.

The Immigrant Employment Council of BC (IEC-BC) and Chartered Professionals of Human Resources BC & Yukon (CPHR BC &YK) invite you to join an Advisory Group to develop solutions to connect BC employers more effectively to this largely untapped talent pool.

At the introductory meeting, you will have an opportunity to review the objectives and terms of reference of the Advisory Group, and shape its future direction.

As a member of the Advisory Group, you will:

  • Benefit from professional development on current issues in diversity and inclusion.
  • Exchange best practices in newcomer hiring and integration with likeminded professionals.
  • Influence new programs and initiatives to support inclusive workplaces.
  • Get priority access to findings and recommendations from primary and secondary research undertaken by IEC-BC.

Finding meaningful employment plays a critical role in creating social cohesion and economic prosperity for newcomers, our businesses and our province. We hope that you will bring your insight and expertise to help us connect BC employers to immigrant talent more effectively.

Please RSVP by Friday, June 23, 2017. Agenda to follow.

NOTE: This is a by invitation only event for HR professionals
