DALSA featured in Globe and Mail article on inclusive hiring

DALSA is proud to have been acknowledged in a recent news article for its progressive, global approach to recruiting talent and hiring new Canadians. Rasha Mourtada, writing in the Globe and Mail, highlights several companies including DALSA who gain a competitive edge in the race for talent by making sure they give proper credit to foreign education or experience.

DALSA hiring managers make a conscious effort not to discount a candidate's origin of education or experience because they are focused on finding the best and brightest people.

“It broadens the talent pool for us,” explains Allison Mitchell, corporate recruitment specialist at DALSA. “Some of the skills we look for are unique and difficult to find.”

Inclusive hiring is ingrained in the company's culture, Ms. Mitchell says. “We do business all over the world. It's important for us to reflect that,” she adds.

DALSA has also been recognized for Best Practices in Immigrant Employment by the Waterloo Region Immigrant Employment Network (WRIEN) for programs helping new Canadians relocate and adapt.
