RETENTION TIPS

There are various strategies employers in the natural gas sector can use to retain new Canadian talent:

  • Taking the time to do a thorough orientation on the job, colleagues and the organization can significantly improve workplace success and retention efforts.
  • Use a mixture of styles and methods to communicate with employees. Describe the organization’s vision for success and how your skilled new Canadian employee fits into that picture. Coach them to grow in their new position to reach their goals. Show concern for professional and personal needs.
  • Create a welcoming environment by connecting skilled new Canadian employees with people and programs providing settlement help. This will likely strengthen their likelihood of staying.
  • An inclusive work environment not only benefits skilled new Canadians, but it can also work to strengthen the organization as a whole. This type of transformation requires the support of senior leaders within the organization and those who can ensure its implementation and longevity.
  • Promote and participate in mentoring programs for new Canadians to provide staff with opportunities to work with new Canadians and gain cross-cultural competencies.
