Sensitivity and Diversity Training


Sensitivity and Diversity Training

Sensitivity and Diversity training resources from emerit are designed to help tourism and hospitality businesses prepare for increasing diversity in their workplace, and in their guests. Increased numbers of international travellers and of new Canadians in the workforce present a unique set of challenges and opportunities for tourism and hospitality operators, and businesses that are prepared for this new reality will be able to gain valuable employees and attract international visitors to their establishments.

Welcoming International Visitors resources are a series of two-page factsheets full of useful information on how to better serve visitors from four of the fastest growing visitor countries: Brazil, China, India, and Russia. Easy to use for cultural sensitivity training and quick reference, the individual factsheets cover nine hospitality related occupations, and are organized into “solution packs” for the Food and Beverage, Accommodations, and Tourism Services industries.

Be sure that your business is ready to welcome a growing number of international visitors and can integrate new Canadians into an effective team oriented workforce. Get started with emerit’s Sensitivity and Diversity Training by choosing from the resources below.



Emerit Training – Testimonials

"I've had a lot of experience in the kitchen, but very little in management. I found myself with a team of employees to supervise, orders to make, and menus to develop. The training came just in time. The program was a big help to me and made it a lot easier for me to fit into my new position."

— Éric Martel, Food Services Supervisor, Mess de la Citadelle in Québec

"I think we've proven without a doubt that the investment in training and in particular in emerit training is definitely recognized in a positive way in the bottom line of our business."

— Sheila Kelly-Blackmore, general Manager, St. Jude Hotel

"You're going to wind up with folks who know what they're doing, who understand why they're there and who want to work and who want to do a good job and essentially who have been empowered and given the tools and given the training to go out and do their jobs really, really well."

— Rob Campbell, Division Manager, Athabasca Catering

"Things have changed a lot over the past few years. Competition has gotten fiercer. You need dedicated and innovative employees to succeed in meeting the needs of an increasingly demanding clientele. By training our employees and listening to them, we develop a feeling of belonging that results in a decreased turnover rate and increased productivity."

— Caroline Milot, Director of Operations, Hôtel et Suites Le Dauphin
