Are you conscious of the current Indigenous workforce landscape? What steps can you take to integrate Indigenous talent into your labor pool? Once you start hiring Indigenous employees, are you creating an inclusive environment and fostering the proper corporate culture?
There are many questions that organizations across Canada need to ask in order to create or evolve their Indigenous workforce strategy. Understanding the unique value and skills of the Indigenous Peoples as well as the ability to communicate, partner, recruit, and retain these employees has a significant impact on your business.
