Culturally Competent Interviewing Skills for Managers

October 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Hire Immigrants Ottawa (HIO) in collaboration with the Kanata North Business Association are pleased to invite you to a complimentary professional development training.

This session is designed to equip employers, people with hiring responsibilities and HR Professionals with practical skills, tips, strategies and tools needed to identify and address communication style and non-verbal issues in interview settings. For example we will explore how the sending and receiving of messages during an interview can lead to misinterpretations and misconceptions.

Topics covered include:

 Perception – how it affects the interview process
 Impact of communication styles during interviews
 Review the Ontario Human Rights Code, Removing the “Canadian experience” barrier
 Strategies for Success.

Why Cross-Cultural Competency?
Cross-cultural competency is the key to managing diverse and inclusive workplaces.

Ottawa’s got diversity – Immigrants make up 23% of Ottawa’s population. Every year, Ottawa welcomes 6,000 new immigrants. Immigrants make up 27% of Ottawa’s labour force with post-secondary education, 36% with a Master’s.
