Companies must respond to the ongoing challenge of change, she notes. Many don’t have the capacity within the company to handle the change, but they also can’t afford to pay for outside expertise.

ABC Life Literacy Canada is a non-profit organization that mobilizes business, government, and communities in support of lifelong learning.
