IN THE KNOW: a seminar for employers of migrants in the Ashburton region

Do you employ migrants in your business? Do you have questions about immigration, cultural differences, and integrating your newcomers into the workplace?

Come along to our FREE seminar and hear from our panel of experts on how you can ensure that you’re getting it right when it comes to employing and settling your newcomers.

You’ll get practical, ready-to-use information about:

  • recent immigration policy changes
  • health and safety requirements for employers of migrants
  • how to be better understood by migrant staff when giving instructions, helping them to fit in and with disagreeing or complaining
  • the free resources available to employers to better manage migrant staff and create productive multi-cultural workplaces.
