A Shared Dialogue: Navigating Across Cultures for Positive Business Communication and Productivity




With Canada’s growing diverse population, it is increasingly likely you will encounter someone from a different culture who has a different communication style and perspective on productivity in the work place. Being able to navigate across cultures is essential for positive business communication and productivity. Adjusting to the new labour force requires knowing how to effectively recruit, onboard, manage, and retain a diverse workforce with the appropriate skills, knowledge and abilities for the future.

World Skills’ Non-Profit Employer Engagement Project will be offering this workshop only to non profit employers.

During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  1. Listen to stories and experiences of  newcomer professionals who have been able to successfully navigate some of the challenges in integrating into the workforce
  2. Listen to stories of managers / staff / employers who have been able to use innovative best practices to support newcomer integration into their work places
  3. Participate in developing ten strategies to help non profit organizations successfully recruit, onboard and manage newcomers into the work place
  4. Develop a draft tip sheet for newcomers and employers to use to promote positive business communication and productivity.
