HR Help: Skills Training for Your Employees

HR Help: Skills Training for Your Employees

Posted by Frank Steinberg | Nov 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

With the economy still struggling and money tight, businesses need to take advantage of every resource to remain competitive.  There's nothing more important to a business than its employees. New Jersey has a way to help with employees' skills training.  As for the cost, well . . . there's nothing better than free, is there?

The program, called the Basic Skills Workforce Training Program, is offered through a consortium of New Jersey's community colleges.

It offers training in computer skills, communications, mathematics and measurement, and English as a second language.  And did I mention that it's free?  All the employer has to do is pay the employees who are being trained at their regular rate.

My firm took advantage of the program a few months ago to upgrade our word processing capabilities, through our local institution, Raritan Valley Community College.  We were very happy with the quality of the training and will likely use it again soon.

If your business is in New Jersey, you should check this out.
