Contact Conference is pleased to add two more new speakers to the speaker roster. Joining us are founder of TalentEgg.ca Lauren Friese and employment specialist Peter M. Paul.
*Important* Early bird registration ends March 16. To register visit: www.contactconference.ca.
Lauren's presentation, Working Together To Fix Youth Unemployment, discusses how the school-to-work transition in Canada is broken: the jobless rate for youth is more than double the national average and we have the second-highest youth under-employment rate of OECD countries after Spain. University grads are heading to college for more practical diplomas in record numbers and, at the same time, many industries are already reporting skills gaps or shortages. What is the solution? Lauren Friese, Founder of TalentEgg.ca, will share strategies and solutions from around the world and recommend, based on her years of experience working at the centre of students, employers and educators, which can be adapted to fix Canada’s youth unemployment problems.
Peter's presentation, Supporting the Recruitment Retention and Promotion of Skilled Immigrants: Global Talent, Local Action, seeks to highlight the business case for hiring skilled immigrants. The session will demonstrate how leading Canadian employers are leveraging the skills and talents of a diverse workforce. It will provide practical tips on how to use the Hireimmigrants.ca website as an HR tool and showcase promising practices from the website that can be replicated in different organizations.
