Social and professional insertion of indigenous workers: Clear Pathways for a Concrete and Effective Contribution

· Editions JFD

About this ebook

The Indigenous population is a young and rapidly growing demographic group, representing a major economic, social and professional force. This book features benchmarks that companies can use to support their efforts in the social and professional insertion of Indigenous workers. The proposed model is based on four dimensions : planning, cultural securement, support and training. It strives to provide solutions to the needs of the host communities, while minimizing the challenges of social and professional insertion for all. Supported by the FNHRDCQ and the INMQ, this publication is the result of the author's research and several years of experience with Indigenous communities. It is primarily intended for managers and all actors involved in organizations operating in the vicinity of Indigenous communities and territories that hire or wish to hire Indigenous workers. It is also relevant for organizations interested in topics related to the employment of Indigenous workers.
