Employer Learning Forum

June 21, 2018

Welcoming Workplaces are Winning Workplaces.

Learn how to create a diverse and welcoming workplace to position your organization to attract top talent.

With demand for talent in Ottawa at an all-time high, becoming and remaining an employer of choice is key to attracting and recruiting top talent. Thriving businesses succeed in the hunt for talent and winning out the competition by building a strong reputation as welcoming and diverse workplaces.

The evidence is clear that the culture of a workplace and how employees feel within it is one of the most important factors in where top talent will go – and stay.

Join a panel of experts and Employer Excellence Award winners who will share their experiences, strategies and tips on how to become welcoming workplaces and magnets for talent.

Participants can expect to:

  • Learn firsthand how welcoming workplaces can help businesses attract top talent;
  • Gain insights from HIO’s 2018 Employer Excellence Award Winners;
  • Learn practical tips for creating a welcoming workplace; and
  • Opportunities to network with other businesses and with skilled immigrants.
