The cultural environment in today’s workplace has become increasingly diverse among all levels of employees and in all business sectors.
There is no longer a standard work setting where employees share a culturally and linguistically similar background. How a company chooses to address and embrace these differences is often seen in their professional development decisions.
Workforce development is a term designed to encompass all levels of education as it relates to enhancing a company’s workforce. At the Centre, these opportunities are reflected in customized training formats that can be designed for a company's unique needs. Examples of these may include:
Regardless of the type of training, a company’s decision to enhance any area of the workplace shows a level of commitment to its employees and is as an investment in their future. The benefits of Workforce Development training are extensive and may include:
- Increased workplace communication
- Improved employee productivity
- Greater intercultural understanding
