Enhancing Our Partnership with RBC to Promote Immigrant Employment in Canada
Skilled immigrants are a key source for new talent with Statistics Canada predicting that by 2031 one in three workers will have been born outside the country. Many leading businesses in Canada already recognize the critical opportunity this provides for their growth and innovation, but still face challenges integrating newcomers into their workplaces.
That’s why Maytree is pleased to announce an enhancement of its longstanding partnership with RBC to help with this challenge.
RBC has a long history of supporting Canadian businesses, promoting the benefits of diversity, and has a successful track record at integrating newcomers to Canada into its own work environment. With this partnership, Maytree will tap into RBC’s expertise to enhance the online tools and resources on hireimmigrants.ca – a website designed to help Canadian businesses integrate immigrants.
“With our rich diversity Canadian businesses have a great opportunity to become even more innovative and successful,” said Wayne Bossert, RBC’s Executive Vice President, Sales, Canadian Banking. “We are excited by the opportunity to help Canadian businesses grow by better connecting with skilled newcomers. When Canadian businesses are successful newcomers benefit; and the communities in which we all work and live benefit.”
|The website hireimmigrants.ca features advice and proven strategies for finding and recruiting immigrant talent, assessing international credentials, mentoring newcomers in the workplace, and breaking down cultural barriers. Complete with videos and e-learning modules, RBC is confident that hireimmigrants.ca is an essential part of the HR toolkit for small and medium business leaders across the country. Since 2003, Maytree has partnered with RBC to help Canadian business see the value of a diverse workforce for both the individual employer and the larger economy:
Companies and societies that best maximize the potential of diverse teams and workforces will be those with the competitive advantage. RBC is proud to be a part of this important initiative for the mutual benefit of newcomers and to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
