A diverse workplace that includes ALL people no
matter what their race, religion, age, gender or sexual orientation offers
employers and staff an opportunity to see things from a different perspective
and can often lead to employees that feel more accepted as they feel valued.
Explore the benefits of diversity in the workplace
with the Employability Network over breakfast on
Wednesday February 26 at 7:30am at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
“Often, when employees feel
valued, they are loyal to the employer and there may be less turnover. In the
long run, having a diverse staff can help to build a great reputation for
companies which in turn leads to increased business and a larger pool to hire
from.” Sarah Maynard – Employment Support Worker.
Sarah Maynard will be
joined by our special guest speaker Mayor Bernadette Clement and foreign worker
recruitment expert, Éric Charlebois.”More than ever, one of the greatest
challenges of our world is learning to understand and work with one another.
Supporting the richness of diversity in our workplaces, and in our daily lives,
leads to better decision-making and happier places!” says Mayor Clement.
Along with the opportunity
to hear from and ask questions to our expert panel you will learn about an
exciting foreign working recruitment program that can support you and your
human resources needs.
