Recruiting newcomers allows you to leverage the motivation, skills and experience of newcomers in your workplace.
How can we help?
As Fredericton becomes a more diverse and multicultural community, our labour force will benefit greatly from the skills and experience of newcomers. MCAF’s employment staff take the time to understand each employer’s unique staffing needs, pre-screen and identify the best newcomer candidate to meet those needs.
Employment Coaches can also recommend wage subsidy programs for qualified employers and employees.
Cultural Competency Training (CCT) for the workplace
In the workplace it is crucial for the whole team to be culturally aware and learn how to work with people from multiple and diverse backgrounds.
Fostering diversity in your organization can unlock tremendous creativity, new perspectives and enable you to better understand and respond to the needs of your customers, both locally and in foreign markets. Having a diverse workforce is to your company’s advantage, as multicultural teams have been shown to drive productivity and innovation and contribute to a competitive edge.
