The makeup of the workforce is changing rapidly. Like the population in general, workers are getting older, many are nearing retirement, and fewer new young workers are available to enter the workforce. To find the workers they need, some employers have successfully expanded their recruitment and retention efforts to focus on workers from “non-traditional” groups, including, but not limited to: women, youth, aboriginals, older workers, immigrants and people with disabilities.
This section provides a guide, suggestions and links to financial programs and support services. It also provides examples of effective practices and policies to help you create and manage inclusive workplaces and support the successful integration of new workers with diverse backgrounds and expectations.
