As a member of CPHR Canada, CPHR New Brunswick has been asked to encourage its members to participate in two important surveys. The first one is to provide your advice in relations to the modernization of the Canada Labour Code and the second one is a survey on the topic of diversity in the workplace. We encourage all members of CPHR New Brunswick to participate in these surveys before the end of the month of January.
MODERNIZATION OF THE CANADA LABOUR CODE
The federal government has launched consultations on the modernization of the Canada Labour Code. The consultation addresses the full spectrum of the Labour Code. This is just the beginning of the consultation process and as a first step, the government is seeking the advice of Canadians. Details are available here: Canada Labour Code Consultations click here
As the views of the profession are important in shaping the issues, I would like you to invite you to participate by completing the online survey. The survey closes January 31, 2018.
We will monitor development on this initiative and provide input at the appropriate time. Views and feedback are welcome.
DIVERSITY IN THE WORKPLACE
‘Diversity’ has become one of the buzzwords to describe how today’s workforce has changed fundamentally over the past decades; employment rates of women have risen substantially, shares of migrants have increased in many countries, and more people than ever before are open about their sexual orientation.
However, little is known how a more diverse society and workforce impacts the daily experiences of employees, managers and HR professionals.
Hoping to fill this gap, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is conducting an online survey on diversity in the workplace, jointly with Paris Dauphine University and the “HR Association”. This survey is part of a larger OECD-wide project on diversity and will be disseminated among HR professionals in a number of countries, with the aim to better understand their views and experiences on this topic and also to enable an international comparison.
We would be very glad if you could contribute to this important work by participating in the survey, which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your answers will of course remain anonymous and will only be used in the context of the OECD Diversity Project.
Your views and experiences as HR professionals are crucial to inform better policy making and to work towards ensuring that a diverse workforce can benefit everyone involved. We sincerely hope that you will share your views with us and would like to already thank you in advance for your time. You can find the link to the survey here.
