Creating a Welcoming Workplace - Disability is Diversity
A welcoming workplace is essential to fostering employee productivity and retention. Employees who feel comfortable and valued at work are more likely to perform well and stay at your company. Creating a welcoming workplace is a key part of becoming a diverse and inclusive business. Employers who tap into the full potential of the region's workforce by building a welcoming and inclusive work environment are posed to better attract and retain workers. Join on on our journey through a series of educational sessions presented by a number of key speakers and industry professionals who will guide us in "Creating a Welcoming Workplace".
Disability is Diversity
Disability is diversity - and it is a type of diversity that teaches 'how to include.' With Canada projecting a loss of 25% of our workforce over the next 10-15 years, workers will increasingly come from diverse groups as well as younger generations that are more invested in diversity and inclusion.
