COLLEGE TO SURVEY BUSINESSES REGARDING TRAINING NEEDS
A short electronic survey will be sent
to over 600 businesses within the Spoon River College district on Monday,
February 10 to ascertain what employee trainings are most beneficial to west
central Illinois business and industry.
Responses will be examined and evaluated to determine future trainings
offered through the college’s Office of Community Outreach.
The survey seeks information regarding
employee training needs including critical core, computer, management,
manufacturing, safety/OSHA, and professional/technical skills. Time required for completing the survey
averages 10 minutes.
“Knowing what skills our district employers’
require of their employees enables Spoon River College to offer the right
training at the right time,” said Velvet Powell, Director of Community
Outreach. “We want to help grow the
economic development of our region by providing a workforce that can meet the
growing needs of local businesses.”
Trainings will enable the region to
build and maintain a stronger, more viable workforce for current or potential
businesses. As a result, the list of needs will also be shared with district
Chambers of Commerce and economic development organizations.
