Leading the Way | Recruiting and Retaining International Talent

March 2, 2022

“There is no good talent these days. And when we do find good talent, we can’t seem to hold on to them. The mass exodus of baby boomers and the ‘great resignation’ are the biggest challenges for Human Resource personnel these days.”

Or so we’re told.

But what if we are wrong, and tons of great talent is actually right here in our community? What if we figured out the secret to retaining that great talent?

Newcomers to Canada are one of our community’s best kept secrets, and a severely untapped market for talent. As an HR professional, you have the opportunity to the lead the way – not just within your company, but within our community.

Join the Immploy team on March 31, 2022 for an engaging, interactive and in-person event (that’s right… in person!) Learn about the valuable skillsets of Canadian immigrants and how they can support your company. Using the concept of ‘Open Space’ you will also have the opportunity to participate in interactive group dialogue about challenges and best practices in recruiting and retaining newcomer talent.

What is ‘Open Space’?

Open Space is an approach that empowers people to decide what topics of discussion are most important to them, allows flexibility in engagement and creates opportunity to move from idea to action. The entire session is guided by one BIG question and has four rules and one law.

Our BIG Question: What is the future of newcomer recruitment and retention?

The Four Rules:

1. Whoever comes are the right people

2. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have

3. Whenever it starts is the right time

4. When it’s over, it’s over (well… sort of… we do have to leave by 5)

The Law of Two Feet:

“If, during the course of any discussion, any person finds themselves in a situation where they are neither learning nor contributing, they can go to another group to find a more productive conversation”

Never experienced an Open Space event before? We hope you’ll join us to see what it’s all about.

Who is this event for?

If you are an HR professional in southwestern Ontario OR make hiring decisions at your company or organization, this event is for you!

*Please note that the event will take COVID safety protocols into consideration as we plan and facilitate this event.
