BC Employer Consultation/Attracting and Retaining Skilled Immigrant Talent

The Immigrant Employment Council of BC And Human Capital Strategies (HCS) invite businesses and employers of the Fort St. John region experienced with hiring immigrants to participate in an employer focus group on January 12th, 2012 to provide input on immigrant hiring and retention.

Immigration accounts for more and more of Canada’s labour force growth.  Combined with the worldwide talent shortage poised to hit employers by 2015, a declining birth rate and a retiring baby boomer generation – the strategic value of tapping into our Province’s vast pool of professional immigrants as a way to fulfill labour force needs becomes more pronounced than ever before.

The consultation aims to obtain the views and advice of BC employers on their needs and requirements in attracting, hiring and retaining immigrants in their workforces.  It is expected to yield recommendations on effective labour market development programs and policies along with concrete tools and resources for employers that will help impact their bottom line.

HCS is looking for 8 to 10 volunteers.  Please join us to share your experiences and recommedations.

A $100 honorarium will be paid to participants for their contributions, participation and time

HCS Focus Group will take place:

Date: January 12th, 2012

Time: 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Location: The Fort St John Chamber Office, 9325 100 Street Fort St John, BC

Refreshments: Lunch will be provided

RSVP: Registration is required.  Please contact HCS’s Victoria Pazukha at 604-808-0431 or victoria@career-mobility.com

Our goal is to make the consultation effective and valuable for you and your business. Please complete a short (5 minute) survey that will help us to better understand your unique workforce needs and structure our discussion. Survey results will be provided at the session.

 

We would appreciate if you provide your responses by 9:00 AM on Wednesday, January 11th.
