Employers can show the way

Successful businesses get the most from new hires by investing in them. For skilled immigrant hires, this may mean supporting them in language training and network building.

This is what TD is doing. They invest in their new hires by:

  • providing opportunities to enhance their language skills
  • mentoring new hires
  • working closely with community organizations to offer other professional development opportunities

Craig Alexander, Senior Vice-President and Chief Economist at TD Economics, talks about how TD unlocks employee potential by helping them develop their “soft” skills.

In the video below, Mr. Alexander reiterates that profitable businesses will be those that effectively integrate newcomers into the workplace and help them succeed.
