Hiring Skilled Immigrants Makes ‘Good Business Sense,’ Says Award-Winning HR Professional

Hiring skilled immigrants just makes “good business sense,” says Zuleika Sgro, Manager of Talent Management Services and HR Business Partner at Questrade.

When she started her role with the online brokerage, she created a library of best practices for recruiting internationally trained professionals. In her first year, she oversaw 100 hires, of which nearly 20 per cent were newcomers to Canada.

This success is part of the reason why she was honoured with the 2011 Canadian HR Reporter Individual Achievement Award as part of the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council’s Immigrant Success (IS) Awards.
