Why Employ Immigrant Talent
Employing talent that mirrors your customer base is easier than ever before. Some companies are already tapping into global talent living in BC and getting ahead of the curve. Studies suggest that diversity improves business profitability and client relations. BC Provincial government states that " employers will have to enhance best practices to hire talent from more different sources..." (British Columbia Labour Market Strategy 2020 - Ministry of Economic and Skills Development)
The cultural diversity of BC shapes the labour market within our province making it far more international than before. Nowadays, employers looking for talent throughout BC face a different reality, with immigrants accounting for almost the whole net growth of the Province’s labour force. In order to succeed, it is essential for employers to operate within this framework.
In a challenging economy, the need for top talent becomes even more critical. You need staff members who can help you stay on course and generate innovative ideas through their global hands-on experience and interpersonal connections. Find out how these employers benefited from tapping into this unique talent pool.
