Working with Newcomers: Tips for culturally-diverse Canadian organizations - Facilitator Guide (2012)

This facilitation guide is one of a set of three resources designed to help culturally and linguistically diverse organizations function better. The goal is to improve productivity and employee satisfaction by reducing misunderstandings and workplace friction.

The material is arranged in four sections: tips for working with newcomers; frequently asked questions, which explores the roots of culturally diverse behaviour at work; strategies for work teams; and tips for management teams. Each section includes a variety of learning activities, along with suggestions for the facilitator.

The participant workbook that accompanies this guide is designed for use in a workshop, and can be supported with the information in the companion resource guide. The facilitator guide accompanies both resources as a support for trainers using the materials.

The resources were prepared by Alberta Workforce Essential Skills (AWES), a nonprofit organization dedicated to building an adaptable and innovative workforce. For more information, visit the AWES website: http://www.awes.ca.
