Trend Innovations Reinforcing Canadian Values of Diversity and Inclusion
When researching the topic of Canadian Immigration, it is clear that Canada has a reputation for diversity and being a place of opportunity for everyone. To confirm this reputation, Canada is currently listed in the top 10 countries of RepTrak, a reputable company that provides a ranking of countries based on a variety of economic, government and environment factors.
Unfortunately, Canada used to be much higher on this list and a recent review has shown that Canada could be slipping. A review on immigration employment for skilled workers discusses how Canadian immigrants can often struggle to find jobs and integrate into the Canadian workplace. But there is hope, Trend Innovations wants to uphold Canadian values of inclusion and opportunity to newcomers. They have made the effort to ensure their work environment is inclusive and provides opportunities to anyone, no matter where they come from. The following employees are a testament to Trend Innovations inclusive and welcoming environment.
Developing New Skills
Trend Innovations current graphic designer, Gonzalo came to Canada looking for new opportunities and was not disappointed. Encouraged by his sister already living in Canada, Gonzalo packed up his life on the Canary Islands of Spain and moved to Canada. He began with 1½ year program in business administration which soon landed him an internship at Trend Innovations. Gonzalo expressed that “from the first day I felt like my opinion mattered, just as much as everyone else”. Gonzalo was then mentored and encouraged to pursue his passion for graphic design within the company. This is the experience that every new Canadian hope’s for. Trend Innovations is providing an excellent example of how to provide a diverse and inclusive workplace. They are not just searching out already skilled workers but taking new people and developing their passion and skills.
