Benefit from the experiences of two organizations widely recognized for their success recruiting immigrants and creating high performing, diverse workplaces. While each offers a very different environment and unique organizational goals, both face the challenge of finding highly qualified individuals to work in team-based, knowledge intensive environments. Each will also discuss accreditation and other immigration and diversity talent management issues.
