Why Training Matters


There is a large and growing gap between the skills employers need for today's competitive global marketplace and the skills employees have. This gap costs United States businesses nearly $60 billion annually in lost productivity.

Make the Connection
Many business leaders recognize that their workforce needs skills upgrade training, but less than 25% are willing to pay for it. Why? Because many do not understand the negative bottom line impact an unskilled workforce can have.
