Event description

Description

Many Canadian organizations have a strong need to increase the number of Indigenous employees they employ:

· Some are trying to get closer to the Employment Equity targets

· Others are trying to meet the employment targets set in the Impact Benefit Agreements they signed with the First Nations whose land they operate on

· Finally a third category sees Indigenous people a rapidly growing untapped talent pool.

However, many Canadian organizations find that recruiting and retaining indigenous people is not as straightforward as it may seem. Indeed, many non-Indigenous Canadians feel that, as soon as they say or do the wrong thing, their Indigenous new hire leaves the organization, often without giving notice. So, what can Canadian organizations in general, and their HR professionals in particular, do to achieve this business objective?

This is the focus of this workshop. Using insightful diagrams, powerful anecdotes and experiential exercises, this workshop analyzes the impact of history and culture on the work relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous people and provides concrete, practical solutions to bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canadian organizations.
