Training & Development Opportunities Can Help Retain Employees

Lakeshore Technical College’s Workforce Solutions division offers dozens of options.




A Pew Research Center survey conducted earlier this year found only 44% of workers extremely or very satisfied with their opportunities for training/ways to develop new skills. Lack of such opportunities can contribute to employee turnover. Employers wanting to offer training opportunities to help retain employees can look to the fall slate of seminars and continuing education classes offered by Lakeshore Technical College’s Workforce Solutions division.

Fall seminars cover topics related to business, communications, safety, compliance, and continuing education. Workforce Solutions also offers dozens of customized training topics in the areas of manufacturing skills, quality concepts, human resources, leadership development, and others. 

“In addition to keeping up with regulatory requirements for training, learning opportunities help employees and employers keep up and grow with technology, leadership development, strategic planning, and industry trends,” said Lakeshore Associate Dean of Economic Development Lucas Dulmes.
