Building a Team to Reflect Your Market

Saskatoon is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities and has recently seen a large increase of new immigrants settling there. The City of Saskatoon realizes that it is important for its workforce to reflect the population it serves to capitalize on economic and civic opportunities.

As a result, the City created a comprehensive hiring and retention strategy to meet its diversity goals. A few pointers that make their strategy effective are:

  • Outreach and communications are key – building external partnerships introduces more diverse job-seekers to opportunities within your organization
  • Good policy alone won’t make your workforce diversity program a success. Results require accountability from committed leaders in your team
  • Empower your staff to ask questions and not be afraid of diversity. Does your organization have the intercultural competencies it needs?
