5. Integrating and Retaining Internationally Trained Workers
5.5 Evaluating your success
Integrating and Retaining Internationally Trained Workers
Has the investment of your time and effort in hiring and retaining ITWs been worthwhile?
Don’t forget to evaluate–and celebrate–your success.
- Track how many ITWs you are employing. If you’ve made a commitment to hire ITWs, or allocated positions to work transition programs, assess your progress on a regular basis.
- Keep track of how ITWs are doing in your workplace. Are these workers appropriately employed for their skills and qualifications? Are they advancing within your organization? (Keep in mind that it should not be compulsory for workers to participate in any tracking process.)
- Report on how ITWs have contributed to your workplace. Celebrate your success with stories in in-house newsletters, press releases to community or trade publications, or reports to shareholders.
- Share what you have learned from recruiting and working with ITWs. Contribute best practices or case studies to your industry association or sector council. Offer to speak at industry workshops, community group meetings or immigrant-serving organizations.
