How we can help you!

This website features interactive tools and resources for Central Alberta employers looking to diversify their workforce. We offer professional development workshops and a web tool focused on what employers need to hire and retain immigrant employees.

Many Central Alberta employers are taking advantage of our new immigrant workforce demographic. We have interviewed these employers to learn from their experiences and to create practical resources that speak to Alberta businesses’ needs.

With Alberta Global Talent, you can find out from successful Alberta businesses how to: prepare for, attract, interview, hire, onboard, and retain qualified immigrant employees to address the growth in your business.

Do you have any questions or would like to receive further information?

Put people first and your business will flourish – Lessons from one of the masters!

Let me tell you about one of the Central Alberta employers we provided with an award this year. His name is Thierry Pregliasco and he owns three McDonalds restaurants in Olds and Innisfail. He started off as a business owner in France, very focused on the productivity piece of generating revenue, but during his experience running a restaurant in Guadaloupe began forming his “people first” philosophy as foundational to his business model. At his restaurants in Central Alberta, Thierry is very much loved by his staff. He knows all 80+ of them by name and takes the time to find out tidbits of their lives and interests which he then acts upon. When I first met him outside one of his restaurants, he was giving toys his children had grown out of to one of his employees, and returning a dish from a staff member who had sent home an ethnic delicacy to Thierry’s family.
