Let's work together to do something about it

Everyone is searching for employees. We no sooner hire someone in and someone else leaves. So much time and money is spent each year on hiring to fill the gaps. Companies are growing. Employees are retiring. The cycle doesn't end and puts a strain on all aspects of the company. 

Let's talk about solutions...

  • Apprenticeship Programs built to meet the needs of area employers. There are several different options for you to learn about.
  • A talent pool of workers trained with a skillset that fits your company's needs
  • Training Programs area educators are currently developing designed to meet your needs and on your terms
  • The integral role CareerSource CLM plays in bridging the gap for employers

Do you know about...

  • The new Industrial Maintenance program created by manufacturers with educators? 
  • The new 39 credit hour Mechatronic Certificate program? 
  • The new Industrial Machinery and Controls Technician program built with local manufacturers and educators?   
  • The Electricity program including industrial controls, industrial control wiring and HMI/PLC?
  • The regional welding programs?
  • The regional CDL training programs?

And yes some of our manufacturers need to learn about the construction programs as well.

The programs listed above are not only ways to find new employees but they are ways to Skill UP your existing employees. Have you identified employees that show a lot of promise? Invest in them through training. Employees thrive when they feel they have value and retention increases. They share with their friends and others start to seek out your company. 

Finding New Employees and Retention of Existing Employees goes hand in hand.
