Career guidance and social justice – what it looks like in practice (NICEC meeting 20th September, 2pm, London)

  1. An important topic. We are lucky in Calgary Alberta to have one of the professions well known experts Dr. Nancy Arthur. The culture of the work seeker has to be a factor for the worker, the counsellor and the employer. If there is a lack of knowledge misunderstandings will occur or false assumptions will be made. HOWEVER and its a important caveat I do not believe it is the employers responsibility to change the workplace to accommodate preferences for newcomers. There may be a need for some compromise. No examples come to mind with the possible exception of allowing someone time for prayer as long as it is a practical accommodation based on the nature of the work site. For example may be easy to do in an office setting while almost impossible on a construction site. I am sure that the devout can find acceptable alternatives to religious custom if the workplace does not accommodate ritual
