Employment and the quality of work is an important determinant of population health and well-being. Workers are now seeking jobs and employers who contribute to their lives in positive and meaningful ways. Employers are also seeking ways to promote worker well-being through supportive policies and practices and by improving the conditions of work.

This discussion will also focus on strategies that assist employers in tapping into the newcomer talent pool and creating an inclusive and supportive environment that allows newcomers to thrive and fully utilize their talent.
