COME will launch Successful Multicultural Company campaign in January 2017.
The goal of the Successful Multicultural Company campaign is to recognize organizations that have succeeded in multiculturalism and who have embraced the diverse workforce. Through recognizing and bringing up positive experiences the campaign advocates for multicultural working communities and employers. The aim is also to recognize the benefits of multiculturalism and diverse workforce and encourage employers and companies to expand their multicultural management skills.
By participating to the Successful Multicultural Company organisations will:
- gain valuable information on their organizational culture and on how the employees see the multiculturalism inside the organization.
- be better able to identify the strengths and potential weaknesses in organization’s working culture and attitudes towards multiculturalism.
- receive feedback and overview on their scores.
- be invited to a Gala where the organizations with highest scores will be awarded.
The Finnish Chamber of Commerce, Chamber of Commerce network and Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment are the main partners in the campaign. Itim International has been selected as the expert partner, and the evaluation of multicultural mindset will be executed by itim International.
More information on the Successful Multicultural Company campaign, requirements and how to participate will be available during the fall of 2016.
