Culturally diverse workforce

More than 2000 new migrants are moving to the Sunshine Coast annually, and local businesses have everything to gain by tapping into this growing workforce.

Employing a culturally diverse workforce leads to many benefits including:

  • increased creativity and productivity
  • a wider range of skills
  • improved employment outcomes
  • improved mental and physical health
  • reduced cost of social services
  • inclusive growth.
