NC3-National Coalition of Certification Centers Chair Bryan Albrecht Discusses Bridging the Skills Gap
It was five years ago when Bruno Independent Living Aids Inc. first started seeing a need for new ways to find and attract skilled labor. Rapid growth combined with increased competition for technical expertise had left the company struggling to fill vacancies with qualified workers.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told staff members and area business leaders at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha today he’s encouraged to see the college’s focus on providing hands-on, real-world training that helps graduates succeed in the workforce.
Job creation! We hear about it everywhere, especially from Washington D.C. Job creation is what America needs; however that is not the full story. Job creation is just the beginning of the story to address how America responds to workforce needs today and in the future. It is an invitation to examine our current and future workforce needs in an effort to fill available jobs, lessen the skills gap and provide industry-driven credentials to meet labor demands locally, regionally and nationally.
