Six new programs are now being offered free to businesses and nonprofit organizations (non-government) through the Industry-Business Institute at Union County College. These are: Team Building, Time Management, Problem Solving, Supervisory Skills, Management Skills, and Personal Management and Business Professionalism.
Already available under this grant are: Customer Service Skills, Customer Service Management, Written Communications, Verbal Communications, Spanish for the Workplace, Introduction to Logistics, Basic Math and Measurement and English as a Second Language. Computer skills workshops in MS Excel, MS Word, MS Outlook, MS PowerPoint, and MS Windows are also available.
“This new series allows us to create a comprehensive training plan for our clients,” said Lisa Raudelunas Hiscano, director of Continuing and Professional Education at Union County College. “Companies and non-profits can book these programs for the professional advancement of their valued employees. These skills are essential at all levels within an organization, whatever size.”
For a course to run, class size must reach ten (10) or more and can be all from a single company, or a group of employers can combine their employees to reach the minimum.
Chambers of Commerce, business associations, industry groups or consortiums can form classes from among their members and offer these programs on a schedule that works for them. Employees must work a minimum of 20 hours a week to be eligible.
The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development funds these programs through the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. Union County College, as part of the community college consortium, is a third party training provider for this purpose.
