“The genesis of this training for businesses came about from input from employers challenged in their search for talent. In our work, we connect with a great many motivated, highly-skilled, internationally-trained potential employees and are intimately familiar with what they need to succeed in the workplace and contribute to their employers’ success. Cultural Edge will give employers the necessary knowledge and skills to ensure they are best positioned to attract, recruit and most importantly, retain a skilled workforce.”
Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade
“Surrey Board of Trade is committed to helping Surrey businesses thrive, and attracting and keeping the right workforce is critical to business growth. And we know from our members the challenges they are having as their employees become increasingly diverse.
