Eden App announced today that their innovative employee training program, run by it’s subsidiary Eden U, held it’s inaugural graduation ceremony for more than 40 candidates looking to enter the Landscaping industry.
In cooperation with the City of Toronto’s Youth Employment Services and a number of agencies from across the GTA, this ground breaking program trains both new Canadians and young people seeking full time paid employment.
“The industry’s most critical business challenge is finding trained, hard working team members”, said Eden App founder Ben Zlotnick. “If we can help our Eden Pro Contractors overcome this challenge then everyone wins.”
This two week program, that includes a guaranteed job placement, is designed to help new Canadians and youth connect with employers and ensure that they are trained and prepared for the workforce.
Sofia Perez graduated as the top candidate in the program. “As a young woman of colour who grew up in a really tough situation, I felt accepted and safe all the way through this program. Eden U treated me like an equal. I was able to show my skills and really learn a lot. Now I have a full time job that pays great and gives me a future.”
