Tips for Hiring Aboriginal Employees [Aboriginal Human Resource Council, AHRC]

Publisher: 
Aboriginal Human Resource Council (AHRC)

"Culturally-sensitive and effective interviewers know the background, experience and culture of the job candidates they interview and respond to each candidate on the basis of individual merit. By understanding that limited availability of work, lack of training opportunities, distance from major economic centres and a variety of personal factors may be responsible for inconsistent work records, the interviewer can more accurately assess an Aboriginal candidate’s resume."

Without the written language culture, all traditional customs were shared by storytelling, and passed down in this same manner over many generations. Given this cultural background, five suggestions can guide the ways you listen to Aboriginal colleagues"

"Canadian Aboriginal women share this global experience of discrimination and violations of their fundamental rights, as evidenced by the high levels of violence against Aboriginal women, inadequate housing and income, and the low levels of employment, education, entrepreneurship and overall economic advancement. They rely more heavily on social assistance and are more likely to head up a single parent family than their male counterparts. Aboriginal women face socio- economic challenges unlike those faced by any other woman in the country."
