“We want to espouse and cultivate a culture of lifelong learning in the organization and providing our people the access to quality certification that is both acknowledged academically and professionally is something that we are proud to say is our lasting legacy to all our employees – whether within Gushcloud and even more so as they navigate their careers outside of it,” seconded Gay Carr, Gushcloud’s chief operations officer.
