What does WPH believe?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Employers: Give your business a competitive edge by tapping into the talent of immigrants

As an employer there are many positive benefits to hiring immigrants:
  • You will increase your access to needed skills
  • Improve your employee retention
  • Increase innovation
  • Increase your connections to new markets
  • Enhance your corporate image

Workforce Planning Hamilton has recently updated The Employer's Roadmap to Hiring and Retaining Internationally Trained Workers in Hamilton, a practical guide for employers in small- to medium-sized enterprises. 

The guide provides information on how to understand and assess foreign education and credentials, how to adapt to cultural differences and offers tips on hiring, integrating and retaining internationally trained workers.

You can access the guide here.
First impressions matter: The importance of front-line staff

Staff who are the voice and face of an organization play a more pivotal role than we (or even they themselves) often give them credit for. Why are these roles sometimes undervalued and how can organizations best recruit, support and work with these important employees?
Our Future Hamilton Summit 2016, April 22, 2016

In 2015, Hamilton citizens were asked a a simple question. What is your vision for the future of Hamilton? Over 50,000 people from across our great city shared their ideas, hopes and dreams to create a new 25 year vision for our community. 

Making Hamilton's community vision a reality depends on collaboration, information sharing and progress reporting. 

Please attend the Our Future Hamilton Summit on April 22nd to discuss how we can work together to implement Hamilton's community vision.
