WINNIPEG, MB – Boyden Global Executive Search, a world-class professional search firm with 80 offices in 43 countries, will open an office in Winnipeg as part of an integrated strategic alliance with Winnipeg’s People First HR Services. As one of the best-connected firms of its kind in the world, Boyden Global Executive Search will recruit professional candidates from its worldwide network for businesses in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northwestern Ontario.
New Directions is one of this community’s greatest success stories, even if it is not yet as widely recognized as it was under its former name, Children’s Home of Winnipeg. With a rich history dating back to 1885 when the railway was being built and Winnipeg was a boomtown of 16,000 citizens, the organization was Western Canada’s first “refuge for homeless, destitute and neglected children.”
“We’re proud to be celebrating our 125th year as the largest and oldest social service agency in Winnipeg,” says executive director Dr. Jennifer Frain. “In 1996, our name changed from Children’s Home to New Directions for Children, Youth, Adults and Families to better reflect our growth and how diverse we have become.”
