Build Your Company's Skilled Workforce

DAUNTING.

That’s what it’s like for those in manufacturing trying to fill open positions due to employee retirement, company growth, re-shoring, backfilling vacancies and so on. Add to this the need to find job applicants with technical skills (not to mention “soft-skills”) and 83% of all companies recently interviewed in our 2015 State of St. Louis Workforce Report say they are forced to hire less experienced candidates and train them (you can download the report at STLCC.edu/STLworkforce).

Join us on Dec. 2nd to examine a tried-and-true model – Apprenticeship – and learn how it may provide a solution for your company’s current and ongoing workforce needs. Over 1,000 non-union and union occupations have apprenticeships in the U.S. across a variety of industries. Listen as our regional apprenticeship experts and companies present their experiences and recommendations. Ask questions and learn more about St. Louis Community College’s solid technical training programs that could align with an apprenticeship opportunity at your company.
