Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Global Hamilton communication conference for Internationally Trained Professionals (ITP)
hip one to use A key finding of Workforce Planning Hamilton's Hiring Immigrants in Hamilton report, released in May 2013, was that the main concern that employers expressed about hiring immigrants related to language and communication issues. In light of this and similar findings in our current labour market research WPH will be presenting Global Hamilton, a half day workplace communications conference for ITP in November 2014. Stay tuned for more details about the keynote speaker and workshops!
