FACILITATING Workforce Development


This module provides a broad overview of the cultural issues that impact employment of new immigrants, and common issues that occur as they acculturate with a new environment.

The understanding of culture, acceptance of cultural differences, and methods the extension professionals and educators can use to help in facilitating the new workers transition into a more diverse population will enhance better understand and improve working relationships between employee and employers.
