How to adapt to the Canadian work Environment? Come to this workshop presented by Caroline Yang on 2014 CPAC Professionals Day:

Adapting to the Canadian Work Environment

Immigrants often bring great technical skills to Canadian organizations and have a strong desire to be successful. However, it has been a challenge for many immigrant professionals to have these skills recognized by employers and peers, thus achieving career success. This presentation will discuss four critical factors for immigrants’ effectiveness in the workplace in Canada: recognize what is important to your employer; learn to take initiatives; understand feedback and adapt your work style.

Caroline Yang, CHRP, CCP, has fifteen years of human resources experience working with multinational and multicultural organizations. She is an expert in cross-cultural communication and co-authored a book on cultural diversity and inclusion.
